In parallel to the presentation schedule, we are happy to announce that SAP product management will be offering pre-scheduled 45-minute SAP Intelligent Asset Management (IAM) Influence Sessions.

SAP seeks further requirements and feedback on key aspects of the IAM products, including Asset Intelligence Network (AIN), Asset Strategy Performance Management (ASPM), Predictive Maintenance and Service (PdMS), and Predictive Engineering Insights (PEI). Areas of interest include for example:

  • The use of analytics across these products
  • Supporting IAM work processes with an IAM “Workbench”
  • Showing data on a geographic map

Each session will start with a brief introduction to the IAM products, a brief overview of the current state of work practices of the attendee’s company in terms of IAM functions, followed by questions from the product manager. There will be an option to deepen the conversation after the conference.

The benefit for a conference attendee to attend an influence session is to:

  • Help drive IAM features to cover the needs of your company
  • Get an early insight into upcoming IAM concepts, designs, and features
  • Opportunity to connect to SAP product management

There is a fixed schedule for influence sessions, and up to two companies can attend one slot. Registration is available on a first come, first served basis. To sign up for a slot, please follow instructions on the registration page.

All sessions hosted by: Oliver Maria Mainka, VP Product Management, SAP Intelligent Asset Management
