Jacobs Engineering Group and Atos have reached a non-exclusive collaboration agreement to provide predictive, condition-based maintenance and field services optimization solutions to clients across industry sectors including water, energy, transport, aviation, nuclear and the built environment.
Dallas/USA — According to a press release published by the engineering services provider, the enhanced data capture and analysis offers clients greater understanding of their assets, helping them to reduce operational and reactive maintenance costs, optimize performance, and increase return on asset investment.
Jacobs Buildings and Infrastructure Europe Senior Vice President and General Manager Donald Morrison said that the collaboration with Atos would help them create more opportunities to leverage disruptive technology and deliver strategic digital innovation for complex government, infrastructure and industrial programs.
Senior Vice President and Global Head of Atos IoT Services Paul Albada Jelgersma explained that all industries are undergoing huge transformation due to the maturing of the Internet of Things (IoT) and analytics services. He added that due to the digitization of front-line operations solutions that reduce cost through predictive and preventative maintenance are in high demand.
Harnessing the professional technical services expertise of Jacobs with the digital and IoT capabilities of Atos, the combined offering is intended to provide further value to clients through real-time insights that detect anomalies and performance patterns, determine critical assets and understand the root cause of asset failure. The offer aims at enabling clients to better anticipate potential asset failure and performance issues, and to proactively plan for timely maintenance and replacement.
The collaboration will leverage part of the Atos Codex portfolio of offerings, together with Jacobs Connected Enterprise (JCE), a suite of integrated digital capabilities and solutions in data analytics, IoT deployment and cyber security. The agreement will initially focus on the UK with the option to extend to other markets.
