What is SAP AM Module

What is Enterprise Asset Management?

Enterprise asset management (EAM) means the whole life optimal management of the physical assets of an organization to maximize value. It covers such things as the design, construction, commissioning, operations, maintenance and decommissioning/replacement of plant, equipment and facilities. "Enterprise" refers to the management of the assets across departments, locations, facilities and, in some cases, business units. By managing assets across the facility, organizations can improve utilization and performance, reduce capital costs, reduce asset-related operating costs, extend asset life and subsequently improve ROA (return on assets).

Asset intensive industries face the harsh realities of operating in highly competitive markets and dealing with high value facilities and equipment where each failure is disruptive and costly. At the same time, they must also adhere to stringent occupational safety, health and environmental regulations. Maintaining optimal availability, reliability and operational safety of plant, equipment, facilities and other assets is therefore essential for an organization's competitiveness.

On the operations side, EAM caters to increased efficiencies of all assets including inventory, regulatory compliance and human resources by combining the salient goals of investment, maintenance, repair and operations management. Simultaneously, EAM addresses business challenges that include productivity enhancement, maximizing asset life cycle, minimizing total cost of ownership and support of the technology and supply chain infrastructure.

Software solutions to support this business paradigm have been in use since the 1970's.

SAP Service and Asset Management is the only integrated solution that allows to manage service and maintenance from end to end. It can handle service sales and marketing, manage service-level agreements, oversee service call centers, track warranties and claims, and provide customer self-service over the Web. It can also perform field service, in-house maintenance and repair, depot repair, service parts management – including execution and planning – and service performance and financial analysis.

And, SAP Service and Asset Management gives asset owners and operators unprecedented capabilities for managing assets, equipment, and facilities. They can manage all types of physical assets, such as production equipment, facilities, and infrastructures over the complete life cycle of those assets – including design specification and procurement, installation and start-up, maintenance and operations, and decommissioning and disposal.

UK'S Steria is strong in AP AM. It has also acquired UK-based Xansa to increase its presence in the market.

Other companies with good SAP AM hold are Accenture, IBM, Axon, and Fujitsu.

In India, Satyam and Infosys are key companies.

SAP now are moving away from describing their system as a set of SAP Modules, and now are using the term ‘solutions’, which is much better, as follows:

* Financials
* Human Resources
* Customer Relationship Management
* Supplier Relationship Management
* Product Lifecycle Management
* Supply Chain Management
* Business Intelligence

Hi All,
Please read this carefully.

We a batch of 14 candidates joined SAP CRM course at Vertion IT, where jawahar is teaching. We were guided by our seniors who heard about him. But after we joined and paid full fees within 10 days we realized the blunder we did. 1st module Base customization was finished in just 10 days. Not understanding any topic we were confused what to do. Then we decided to attend demos, started hunting for good faculty for SAP CRM. Atlast we found Ramcharan after attending 5 classes of different faculties. Ramcharan is passionate about SAPCRM and Training. We could not hesitate to ask him to allow us as a batch to join and we paid fees immediately. So it's a lesson for all those who blindly follow suggestions of their friends, seniors or colleagues. Don't be blind and waste your money and time. Keep open yourself and try to find good faculties. Time is precious than anything and with time you either loose or gain confidence.

Whatever, anyone who wants to do a course need to see 3 important things
1. Trainer's knowledge
2. Presentation skills(make us comfortable and confident)
3. Trainer's discipline
If you find 3 things in any faculty join bliindly. Don't get influenced by friends or institute names. You can attend demo right? Attend, enquire and join. It's not money which will get wasted if you join wrong institute or wrong faculty, It's 1. Time 2. Confidence and 3. Josh/Zeal which you loose. And it is very difficult to get them back.
Just to add to help SAP seekers i have seen faculty Mr. Ramcharan who has these 3 qualities. He will not make any kind of promises nor will get you job. He will impart the necessary knowledge to be successful and confident. He has tremendous knowledge and fabulous expressive skills and is highly desciplined. You see such type very rarely.

Recently completed training online in sap-crm and felt satisfied with the knowledge and explanation. It's very difficult to find genuine faculties that too online. I have been waiting for a faculty who has decent knowledge and explain well and being in some other location, with busy schedule everyday, without seeing faculty directly it is risky. After seeing my friend's reviews about rcstudentclub i attended demo online and later joined the course. I was happy the way RC took classes and the patience he has to explain again and again.

http://rcstudentclub.wordpress.com/ is helpful for all those who want to undergo online training in sap-crm from Ramcharan sir and this dedicated student community will suggest faculties/institutes genuinely for other modules also.Hope they introduce other modules soon.
With best regards
Phanibhushan,Dandenong.

Ramcharan is surely a most valuable Diamond in the SAP crown, I saw and attended so many training's but the way he takes you through the topic is simply outstanding, he uses most easiest and best examples. I salute to his passion for training and wish him with all the blessings from parents of his successful students.
God bless his passion.

All the sap consultants who are working in SD, ABAP, CRM functional & Technical definitely need to know and learn Middleware. Understanding the replication from CRM to R/3 back-end system and the different loads (initial & delta loads) and middleware connections and request load for objects will be very useful for them. Only one faculty RamCharan sir at hyderabad is explaining and teaching middleware course both classroom and online. visit http://rcstudentclub.wordpress.com/ and get details like course curriculum, duration etc. Make the most out of this excellent opportunity. Good luck
