Executive Summary

This report provides current customers and prospective buyers of industrial asset management software with strategic guidance on how to make the best purchase decisions in the context of an evolving market. The increasing involvement of financial investors and corporate groups has significantly impacted the market dynamics. Overall, this is good news for buyers and users as the cash injections have funded more robust products. But vendors without sufficient scale or financial backing will find they are struggling in a market with bigger and better funded rivals. Financial firepower to drive innovation, industry expansions, and new technical requirements have significantly changed the assessment criteria that buyers should apply. From 2022, the market reshuffle will also be reflected in new value propositions outside core asset management systems such as DataOps, production optimization, emissions monitoring and energy management.
