The year 2010 has been uncertain until now, especially in the context of asset management. While the economic recovery has been in process, the capital and operational budgets are still very tight for a majority of companies. At the same time, industrial accidents have constantly been on the headlines this year driving immense pressure on executives in asset intensive industries. Aberdeen's fourth annual study on the topic of Asset Performance Management (APM) will look into how these industrial incidents have impacted organization's asset management strategy. Each respondent who answers the survey will receive a complimentary full copy of the report containing this study's results (a $399 value). Individual responses will be kept strictly confidential and data will only be used in aggregate. We greatly appreciate your participation in this research effort and look forward to sharing our findings with you.
