Jacobs Engineering Group and Atos, have together reached a non-exclusive collaboration agreement to provide predictive, condition-based maintenance and field services optimisation solutions to clients across industry sectors including water, energy, transport, aviation, nuclear and the built environment. The enhanced data capture and analysis offers clients greater understanding of their assets, helping them to reduce operational and reactive maintenance costs, optimise performance, and increase return on asset investment.
“This collaboration with Atos will help us create more opportunities to leverage disruptive technology and deliver strategic digital innovation for complex government, infrastructure and industrial programs,” explained Jacobs Buildings and Infrastructure Europe Senior Vice President and General Manager Donald Morrison. “With our in-depth industry knowledge and combined digital capabilities, we are well positioned to help our clients achieve performance excellence and maximise its opportunities in this dynamic technology space.”
“All industries are undergoing huge transformation due to the maturing of the Internet of Things (IoT) and analytics services,” said Paul Albada Jelgersma, Senior Vice President, Global Head of Atos IoT Services. “The digitisation of front-line operations means solutions that reduce cost through predictive and preventative maintenance are in high demand. This is a highly synergistic collaboration and our recognised expertise in end-to-end strategy covering consulting, development, advanced analytics, managed IoT and IoT security will enable us to provide integrated solutions to clients from the outset.”
Harnessing the professional technical services expertise of Jacobs with the digital and IoT capabilities of Atos, the combined offering will 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. This enables 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.
