Big data, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) are making a big difference to the asset management landscape. Asset management is only just beginning to truly¬†recognise the value that these can offer. In an often confusing world full of solutions with futuristic capabilities and the revolutionary promises to match, it can be difficult to know what new things to adopt, and what’s best to keep ‘as-is’.

Asset management as a discipline remains full of slow and repetitive manual processes in dire need of optimisation. Huge volumes of data in different formats and of varying quality, flood teams and IT systems which creak under the pressure. Data is then often required to be stored in multiple databases in order to inform future maintenance regimes or improvement plans. With complex transactions happening constantly, good and proper management of asset data is an incredibly difficult task. When you consider that asset management processes remain reliant on manual methods, it’s not difficult to see how time and resource is so quickly consumed.

Embrace the now

By embracing new technologies with ETL, machine learning and AI functionality, operational efficiency can be improved dramatically. Say goodbye to swathes of paper-based records and constant human-data interaction causing reliability and compliancy issues. With FME, data can be cleaned, quality checked, re-formatted and processed before being securely loaded into databases. The workflows used to complete these processes are replicable and repeatable, as well as being operated by a single click per run, or even being fully automated.

FME is the flexible data integration tool used by miso to solve the bespoke challenges that asset managers face with their data processes. It offers an expansive library of capabilities, and is therefore adaptable to all manner of scenarios. FME and miso have an illustrious history of providing spatial data solutions. This is valuable in the world of asset management as there’s naturally a need to locate, record and keep track of assets which exist in the physical world.

Harness miso expertise for successful projects

Spatial is far from the only type of data that asset managers are regularly faced-with, though. Expert miso innovation coupled with the power of FME, means that no matter the form or format of the data; the end result is the same: more efficient and cost-effective processes.

At miso, we have a solid knowledge of and a wealth of experience in working to improve asset management across a range of large organisations, from the Environment Agency to A-one+. Instead of overawing clients with complex solutions, we communicate clearly and keep all parties suitably updated at every stage of the process. This ensures that client requirements are met quickly and in a collaborative manner. We revel in solving the congestion on the B-Roads that people in asset management run into on a daily basis; the pinch points that slow processes down, and cause an abundance of frustration.
