Executive Summary

This report provides a detailed fact-based comparison of the most prominent asset performance management (APM) software vendors in the market today. Based on the proprietary Verdantix Green Quadrant methodology, our analysis encompassed two-and-a-half-hour live product demonstrations with pre-set scenarios, and considered vendor responses to a 206-point questionnaire covering 10 technical, 10 functional and 12 market momentum categories. We also conducted interviews with 10 APM software users and reviewed the data from our global survey of 256 operational excellence decision-makers. Spend on APM software is set to grow, with providers looking to differentiate through partnerships and acquisitions, increased mobile and wearable functionality, 3D visualizations and digital twin simulations, and rapid implementations to garner quicker returns on investment (ROI). Among the software vendors featured in the Leaders’ Quadrant, seven firms—AspenTech, AVEVA, Bentley Systems, Cognite, GE Digital, Hitachi Energy, IBM—demonstrated the most advanced all-round APM software capabilities
