AVEVA Solutions Limited an engineering software provider, has announced that its AVEVA NET Gateway 5.0 has achieved certified integration with the SAP® ERP application. AVEVA’s intent is to provide IT and Operations managers with peace of mind when integrating critical engineering information.
The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that AVEVA NET Gateway 5.0 integrates with SAP ERP to augment existing critical operations systems with additional engineering information and tag data. This dynamically supplements the information in SAP ERP by providing context through the models and drawings.
SAP ICC has certified that AVEVA NET Gateway 5.0 is based on proven and supported SAP integration technologies. Taking information from outside of one software solution into another system typically adds risk. The SAP certification confirms that AVEVA NET Gateway 5.0 makes accurate, up-to-date, reliable information readily available and accessible, while supporting data integrity and reducing risk to data such as data loss or the introduction of inconsistencies.
Dave Wheeldon, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at AVEVA says, “Many of our clients use SAP software as their core application, and we expect that certification of the AVEVA NET Gateway will give them peace of mind that data will not be compromised when it is extracted or updated.”
AVEVA’s solution acts as an integrated engineering information management layer on top of SAP and other operations systems to provide a comprehensive tag-centric view across all engineering information, including drawings and models, while helping ensure that the information is in sync with the master system.
Companies tasked with the design, commissioning and maintenance of major engineering projects use vast amounts of data. The reliability of engineering information is a crtical factor for those businesses looking to control project costs, address health and safety risk, remain compliant with regulatory requirements and deliver on time and to specification.
