Virtual event to highlight the value of Asset Performance Management in the Middle East


Organizations in the Middle East and Africa will have the opportunity to gain insights on the importance of embracing asset performance management to drive efficiency and help digitally transform operations at Infor’s ‘Evolving to APM (Asset Performance Management) Campaign’ event on June 3.

By taking a strategic approach to APM, organizations can keep critical equipment and production lines up and running at optimal performance, minimizing downtime, raising productivity, and saving resources by lengthening the resilience and lifespan of assets.

The importance of asset management was brought into sharp focus by recent research showing that the global Enterprise Asset Management market is expected to reach a value of US$5.5 billion by 2026, up from US$3.3 billion in 2020, representing a CAGR   of 8.7%, according to Markets & Markets.

Infor’s ‘Evolving to APM Campaign’ is part of a webinar series showcasing Infor customers on their journey to Asset Performance Management. The event on June 3 will include a session by Walid Abdulrehman Mohammed, operations & maintenance department manager at Ras Al Khaimah Wastewater Agency (RAKWA), who will discuss the organization’s achievements with Infor, including reducing corrective maintenance and related work orders by 17%, enabling RAKWA to reduce costs across the entire operation by at least 3%.

Matthias Gentzik, senior manager, smart manufacturing, PwC, will offer insights on how to maximize the potential of Maintenance 4.0, and Bas Beemsterboer, industry & solutions strategy director, Infor, will present details about how technology can support organizations’ Asset Performance Management.

“Advances in EAM and data analytics software have transformed the way organizations view and manage their assets. Organizations across all verticals can transform the way they manage their assets over their lifecycle to increase efficiency, performance, and strategic planning,” said Khaled AlShami, Infor director of solution consulting, MEA. “We look forward to discussing the need for an APM mindset based around intelligence-led, pro-active asset maintenance.”

Infor has experienced solid growth in EAM in the Middle East. Major asset intensive organizations including RAKWA in the UAE, Public Authority of Water in the Sultanate of Oman, Samra Wastewater Treatment Plant in Jordan, and many more have successfully implemented the system and experienced significant increases in efficiency.

The growth in Infor EAM customers led Infor to launch a dedicated customer user community for Infor EAM users in the Middle East in 2020.

The ‘Evolving to APM Campaign’ takes place on June 3 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. (Gulf Standard Time). Executives interested in attending can register here:
