AssetWorks Collaborates with ISES and Sightlines to Provide Capital Planning Services

Three industry heavyweights work together to provide facilities professionals with comprehensive services and cutting-edge technology.

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/21/14 -- AssetWorks, a leader in Intelligent Workplace Management, today announced at the Association of Higher Education Facilities Officers (APPA) 2014 Annual Conference and Exposition that it is closely collaborating with ISES Corporation and Sightlines LLC to provide comprehensive capital planning services. Cooperation between these three industry pacesetters provides their mutual clients with a unique combination of facility condition assessment services, multi-year investment planning and project selection and funding services, and work planning and execution management via the AiM(TM) Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS).

ISES Corporation is a best-in-class expert in providing assessment services to institutions of higher education and public sector entities and is renowned as a supplier of highly credible data for strategic and capital planning. The collaboration between ISES and AssetWorks offers their mutual customers two important advantages. First, it eliminates silos of information that undermine good business practices. Secondly, it prevents assessment data from becoming dated. This is accomplished by housing the assessment data in the broader IWMS solution where the planning and execution of work is managed. Leveraging a native data import function, ISES assessment data is imported directly into AiM. AssetWorks and ISES have adapted their solution to align with recent industry trends, in which there has been a shift away from routine project management to a focus on analysis and needs assessment.

Sightlines, a leader in facilities measurement, benchmarking and analysis, lends its concept of Building Portfolios to the collaboration. Sightlines and AssetWorks work jointly to tie assessment data in AiM to mission and finance by grouping buildings into portfolios of assets that mirror institutional priorities. Project data is transformed from a technical assessment to a multiyear capital plan within the AiM's Capital Planning and Project Management (CPPM) offering.

"Our collective vision demonstrates in absolute terms how three companies can collaborate to provide greater value to our mutual customers," said Ken Slaughter, Senior Vice President, AssetWorks. "The work that we've done together thus far is truly trendsetting. Rarely is there one solution that captures assessment data, applies the concepts of portfolio management against those needs, and executes work against a multiyear strategic plan by leveraging technology to manage both operations and maintenance and capital project management."

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity.
