Executive Summary

This Tech Roadmap report clarifies the business value, pace of innovation and maturity of 23 asset management technologies. Verdantix conducted a fact-based assessment of the maturity, innovation, future prospects and business value of each solution. Operations and facilities managers responsible for selecting technologies for asset lifecycle management should use this report to identify the technologies that can add value to their operations. The technologies identified range from emerging categories such as video analytics for asset condition monitoring to a variety of asset health analytics tools, asset performance management software and operational risk management software. Technology buyers can use the Tech Roadmap methodology to identify new technologies for pilot projects and also to develop technology strategy plans. Risk averse firms should focus on the potential of technologies with proven business value which are in the growth or maturity phases of the technology lifecycle. Innovators and early adopters should take note of launch phase technologies.
