Realizing the value and potential of assets

Effectively managing assets at every stage of its lifecycle can help realize its value, if done accurately. Organizations, therefore, need to better understand what asset management is and recognize the benefits of asset advisory solutions by going beyond day-to-day operations and seeking continual improvements through cost-effective measures.

           Five-point focus for asset management

 CLIMATIC CONDITIONS

Climate change combined with extreme weather conditions have a more severe impact on assets leading to shorter lifespans and requiring more frequent maintenance.

FUNDING

The predicted decline in global trade this year coupled with the rapidly changing dynamics of the Middle East’s economy are driving organizations to be more cautious in their investments of new assets whilst expecting maximum return on existing ones.

OPTIMIZATION

Organizations are constantly trying to reach and maintain a balance between CapEx and OpEx to drive changes in ToTex.

CURRENT ISSUES

The impact of COVID-19 has prompted organizations to reassess their plans, which could result in project delays and repurposing of completed projects.

DIGITIZATION

Digitization and management of data will have one of the biggest positive outcomes in terms of technology, but misused data can also lead to huge concerns.

Assets in the Middle East are in different maturity stages; 

subsequently presenting unique challenges and opportunities.
