What is Infrastructure Asset Management?

Delivering services to customers and making short and long-term decisions is what keeps asset owners up at night. We need to put structure and workflows in place to balance service levels, costs and risks for the organization – that’s where asset management can help.

While the practice of asset management includes the professional areas of risk, finance, engineering, economics and information management, Asset Managers are business strategists who should understand a little about each of these specialties. They need to see the big picture and think about tomorrow’s problems not just those of today.
