Infor EAM will help provide a complete asset registry by integrating all of the information relating to sanitation engineering, roads and building assets that are constructed, operated and maintained by the Ministry of Works. The solution will manage the Ministry’s public infrastructure assets through its entire life cycle – from design to retirement.

Core to the success of the project is the integration of data between the best-of-breed technologies used by the Ministry. The integration work involves using web services between the four key business software applications: Infor EAM, Rolta OnPoint (GIS), IBM’s Enterprise Document Management System (EDMS) and Oracle’s Enterprise Project Management Information System (PMIS).

Implementation to include secure single sign on, and the effective use of mobile and handheld devices for remote maintenance management in order to maximize productivity of staff.

“The Ministry requires a wealth of information to ensure successful running of all the sanitary, road and building management assets in the Kingdom necessary to serve some 800,000 people. The integrated solution is a complete infrastructure asset management system with GIS, providing us with greater capabilities and flexibility across our departments,” said Hisham Yousif Sater, Director, Information Technology (ITD), Ministry of Works, Bahrain.

“We can locate and personalize reporting of KPIs to include content from systems throughout the Ministry. Ultimately we have a complete financial, engineering and operational view of our operations across all our departments where before only information silos existed.”

“Infor EAM will help The Ministry of Works to manage its capital assets, predict reliability problems, prevent them and plan alternatives,” said Paul Hammond, General Manager, Infor in the Middle East.
