IFS, the global enterprise applications company, has been identified as the number one vendor in market share in enterprise asset management (EAM) and field service management (FSM) software for the oil and gas industry by ARC Advisory Group, the leading information technology research and advisory firm for industry and infrastructure.
In its new publication “Enterprise Asset Management and Field Service Management, Market Analysis and Forecast through 2017,” ARC Advisory Group recognizes IFS as the leading supplier to the global oil and gas industry.
“The oil and gas industry operates in an environment in which asset integrity management (AIM) is crucial,” ARC Research Director for Enterprise Software Ralph Rio said. “The commodity pricing of the petroleum sector creates extreme pressure to control cost while preventing catastrophic failures across asset classes including offshore oil rigs and pipelines.”
“We have enjoyed this dominant position in the oil and gas market identified by ARC for a number of years now,” IFS North America Vice President for Energy and Asset Management Patrick Zirnhelt said. “Our strong position has been enhanced by a growth in new and existing customer relationships, mostly in the offshore and oil and gas pipeline industries. This is driven by our specialized functionality for the oil and gas industry.”
