SAP Asset Intelligence Network

Seamlessly connect machines and business – with our asset intelligence repository

Collect, track, and trace equipment information in a central repository – with SAP Asset Intelligence Network. This cloud-based hub facilitates collaborative asset management and lets companies take full advantage of the Internet of Things (IoT). Operators can access up-to-date maintenance strategies, manuals, and more from manufacturers – and manufacturers can automatically receive asset usage and failure data from operators.

Why SAP Asset Intelligence Network?

Because the secure network automates asset data exchange – and helps OEMs, operators, and service providers thrive in the digital economy. Using cloud-based Internet of Things (IoT) technology, SAP Asset Intelligence Network can help you:

  • Connect to a central hub for all enterprise asset management (EAM) stakeholders
  • Increase asset data quality with a world-class product data management (PDM) system
  • Simplify collaborative asset management by storing common metadata on the network
  • Improve equipment reliability and issue response times – and reduce asset maintenance costs
  • Manufacturers: Boost customer satisfaction, ensure product liability, and make improvements based on feedback
  • Operators: Benefit from complete asset information, tailored services, and fewer maintenance issues
  • Prototype and launch new IoT initiatives in 3 months or less – with the SAP Leonardo jump-start program
