SAP Enterprise Asset Management & GIS Integration with mWorkOrder

Innovapptive recently announced it has joined forces with two leading spatial systems integrators namely Critigen and We-do-IT to deeply integrate corporate Geographic Information System (GIS) data with mobile platforms and enterprise application data from SAP. The mWorkOrder (Mobile Work Order Management) mobile solution for SAP Enterprise Asset Management(EAM )deeply benefits from this announcement, as it now has enables business users to connect the location of assets and the rich geospatial information contained in corporate GIS systems to asset condition and maintenance information in SAP.

End-to-end support from various GIS Platforms such as GE Smallworld GIS, ESRI ArcGIS and SPATIALinfo spatialNET® or any other GIS format via OpenGeo or FME for spatial data is integrated across SAP HANA Cloud and SAP Mobile Platform, aiming to offer organizations the ability to:

  • enrich SAP Business Suite applications with geographic content.
  • rapidly process spatial, location and enterprise data in real time to enable decision-making related to asset management and customer service
  • visualize geographic information in maps, graphs and charts using tools from the SAP portfolio.
  • deliver applications to field workers that effectively process geospatial and business data using SAP HANA Cloud or SAP Mobile Platform.

GIS Integration with Esri-based Map Control by Critigen

Your field workers can use an interactive map to visualize work they’ve been assigned and see surrounding assets and work history. Your planners can see where the assets are and use GIS capabilities to more effectively bundle and plan work. Executives can combine all of this data into comprehensive and easy-to-use spatial analytics to incrementally or improve safety, reliability, or ROI.

Innovapptive and Critigen are now delivering integration of spatial data as part of the mWorkOrder solution for mobile Enterprise Asset Management. Field workers can now access business and spatial data in a single view and execute workflows on a map-based user interface. This deep integration is enabled through SAP HANA Cloud Platform or SAP Mobile Platform. Critigen has vast experience in the GIS area having completed several implementations integrating map controls and data from SAP with Esri ArcGIS® client mapping technology.

The ability to deliver spatially-enabled business processes will unlock the next level of process efficiencies through beautifully simple yet powerful mobile apps from Innovapptive.
