  • Innovapptive continues to make far-ranging and impactful improvements to its suite of mobile-first solutions. The company has just issued its latest batch of enhancements designed to give mWorkOrder, Race Dynamic Forms, Mobile Operator Rounds (mRounds), and Connected Back Office users a wider array of capabilities. Here is a summary of the major enhancements.
  • “Should I buy a mobile enterprise asset management solution or build one myself?
  • Fixed assets are tangible assets like machinery, building, facilities, etc., which an organization uses to generate revenue. These assets are listed on the balance sheet and most of them generally depreciate over time. For asset-intensive industries to generate accurate financial reports and asset valuation, companies must regularly track the change in the value of their assets.
  • More and more asset-intensive companies realize that implementing a connected worker solution that mobilizes workforces is a solid path to more efficient plant maintenance and warehouse management. When searching for a solution, many organizations solicit inputs from operations and finance. This practice is always a good idea. However, these same companies often forget to include the IT team in the early stages of their search. Overlooking IT isn't a good idea.
  • Digital transformation technology has revolutionized industrial plants and manufacturing facilities, particularly in the maintenance department and the spare parts warehouse. Versatile mobile apps empower frontline workers to perform their jobs faster, better, safer, and cheaper. Given the breadth of market offerings, organizations have a tough time selecting the right connected worker solution that best aligns with their business needs.
  • Sustaining operations and managing a workforce has already become a cause of concern in the oil and gas sector as it grapples with a “skills crisis.” Workforce management today is a significant determinant of productivity and operational efficiency. Field workers and managers are the primary resources ensuring uninterrupted operations. Efficient workforce management is an important aspect that can’t be overlooked. Mobile workforce management and modernizing work allocation processes, therefore, can become a differentiator in tackling the increasing complexities of managing resources in the sector.
  • In today’s extremely competitive market, where the warehouse is at the center of your business, running it well is no longer enough. There is something even more important, which completely depends on efficient warehouse operations: customer satisfaction. 
  • Not long ago, organizations used handheld barcode scanners to key-in asset information into their records. Those scanners were quite costly and offered limited features compared to what’s available now. And like any other hardware device, those handheld scanners required frequent service and replacement. Today, barcode asset management is an increasingly pervasive practice.
  • Asset-intensive companies are quickly coming to realize the benefits of mobilizing workforces through IBM Maximo and SAP asset management applications. However, one key factor often gets overlooked when organizations search for a solution. Missing the mark on this component can make a big difference in whether the organization achieves a positive return on investment (ROI) or gets saddled with a system that doesn't fully meet its unique needs.
  • Aging equipment, lack of resources or staff, and poor scheduling rank among some of the biggest maintenance challenges faced by industrial plants. Workforce management and resource allocation (both physical and human) are extremely crucial parts of facility management in any industry. It becomes all the more critical in asset-intensive and hazardous industries like oil and gas. Simply put, the most effective means for ensuring that you get the most value from your resource allocation and workforce productivity is by reducing overall downtime.

  • In a post COVID landscape, the business world is increasingly focusing its attention towards task automation and digital first processes to allow them to save time, money and valuable business resources.
  • I remember just about three years ago sitting in a companywide meeting in a conference room at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Lisbon, Portugal (Museu Coleção Berardo, Lisboa). Our CTO, Bernd Engist, was giving us a presentation about some new features we had recently developed on automating the start/stop process of an SAP system. 
  • We’ve just released Avantra 21.11.6 and as Product Manager for Avantra, I get the opportunity to showcase some of the awesome new features we’ve managed to fit in this release.
  • It was Avantra’s predecessor Syslink Xandria 7.2, released back in November 2018, which provided native cloud integration for AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. Right after this release providing our first step in automation for IaaS, specifically around start-/stop, we heard customers say: “But we have a huge VMware on-premise landscape, don’t forget us.” Needless to say that we certainly know that VMware products have made their way to the cloud since quite some time. It was in 2016, when VMware and AWS announced the launch of the VMware Cloud on AWS, enabling IT teams to manage their cloud-based resources […]
  • Integrations to third party ITOM/ITSM solutions have been used by all Avantra customers since the beginning back in 2003. Often this is due to corporate support processes and the customer’s wish that all solutions used to manage the entire IT landscape shall report to one single ITOM/ITSM solution. This is where activities of different departments are coordinated.
  • Next in the ‘Meet the team’ blog series we feature Tyler Constable, Avantra Executive Director of Sales Engineering. Tyler is based in the USA and plays a critical role in product development, engineering and sales verticals. A proud dad, Tyler is also a metal music fan and likes to spend time with his family when he is not helping companies with their SAP automation needs. Read on to learn more about Tyler.

  • SAP HANA Migration As a revolutionary column-based in-memory database, SAP HANA has been praised as one of the most notable technology innovations in many years.  Organizations entirely new to SAP can implement and benefit from using its comprehensive ERP solution SAP S/4 HANA almost right away – immediately gaining a boost thanks to rapid scalability, consistent efficiency and airtight security. However, for organizations already powered by previous SAP versions such as SAP ERP Central Component (ECC), they still have some homework to do when it comes to their own SAP HANA migration.
  • SAP maintenance planning is a helpful way to keep track of scheduled maintenance activities in your SAP environment. If you’re in the process of updating or planning for the upcoming year, it can be helpful to determine when your SAP systems will be down for maintenance.
  • SAP on premise to AWS cloud migration is a key focus area for many businesses. This is no surprise given that SAP is without a doubt among the leading ERPs. SAP HANA, available both on premise and in the cloud, offers a powerful relational database ideal for data storage, retrieval and analytics in real-time.
