Have a look on who all are speaking at Pulse 2013 and about what

If you can’t make it to Pulse this year, no need to worry. IBM is sponsoring an Enterprise Asset Management Conference in Melbourne on 20-21 March, 2013. It talks about strategically integrating Asset Management Processes across an Enterprise to Reduce Lifecycle Costs, Improve Asset Use and Achieve Organizational Objectives.

Neil Roberts, Director of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) at Yarra Trams is speaking for IBM in this event. Neil is enabling success by driving implementation of new and improved systems to enhance the passenger experience, and improve the operational effectiveness of Melbourne’s iconic tram system, the largest operating tram network in the world.

Real time passenger engagement and passenger information, via tramTRACKER and social media, is underpinned by the extensive use of IBM Maximo Enterprise Asset Management across the Yarra Trams business to support key business processes, improve customer service as well as increase tram and infrastructure reliability.

At the EAM Conference Neil will highlight the success he has achieved by transforming the Business-IT partnership – enabling business leaders to uncover and implement new growth and client relationship opportunities. He’ll talk about how they are fusing the delivery & management of physical infrastructure assets (e.g., Trams) and advanced IT technologies such as cloud, mobile/social, security and analytics capabilities and the overriding importance of leveraging operational “Big Data” inherent in smarter infrastructures.
