Aras and AVEVA: Building a Unified Digital Thread for Industrial Asset Lifecycle Management

Learn more about the expanding AVEVA / Aras partnership at AVEVA World 2023

Recently, AVEVA, a global leader in industrial software driving digital transformation, announced that they can now offer Aras Innovator® to joint customers alongside AVEVATM Unified Engineering, AVEVATM E3D Design, and AVEVATM Asset Information Management as part of a reseller agreement.

The partnership between AVEVA and Aras will allow users to access valuable insights derived from accurate/historical data using a robust enterprise-wide digital thread. We are excited to partner with AVEVA and proud to be silver sponsors for this year’s AVEVA World, October 23 – 26, 2023, in San Francisco.

How it works

Aras and AVEVA have partnered to deliver a unique solution for managing information, processes, and data across the lifecycle of large industrial assets.

The Aras Innovator platform has been a disruptor in the PLM space with the industry’s most comprehensive set of Digital Thread capabilities:

  • Flexibility: Highly configurable, low-code platform with the flexibility to adapt faster
  • Scalability:  Adapt to changing needs for computing power, storage, and network capacity
  • A CAD-agnostic platform: No longer limited to one specific vendor’s CAD tools
  • A robust Digital Thread: Unlimited connectivity and traceability across the lifecycle

AVEVA is collaborating with Aras to build Digital Thread solutions within a unified data platform that combines engineering, construction, and asset operations data to improve decision-making. This is the underlying current and historical data (“single source of truth”) that underpins AVEVA’s Digital Twin.

Empower your asset lifecycle management process with Digital Thread

Since entering into an OEM partnership, AVEVA and Aras have worked together to operationalize and unify data to establish a collaborative Digital Thread (see Figure 1). AVEVA’s unified data platform supports and accelerates decision-making using asset engineering, construction, and operations data. AVEVA will provide data aggregation and contextualization, with Aras managing the full connected history of that data, adding configuration management, change management, approval and other workflows, and requirements management. AVEVA and Aras make a powerful team with a long list of synergies we reviewed in an earlier blog about the partnership.

Aras is a sponsor of AVEVA World 2023 and is participating in the Partner and Product Expo and Partner Solution Talks. I will deliver a Partner Solution Talk on  From Data to Knowledge: Empower Your Asset Lifecycle with Digital Thread, as well as participate in a joint presentation with McDermott and AVEVA in the Engineering Track. We encourage you to check out AVEVA’s latest blog on our partnership and collaboration and invite you to visit us at the AVEVA World Expo, Booth #8, to see a demonstration of seamless, data-centric document management workflows across AVEVA tools and Aras Innovator. 

"Our partnership with Aras is a game-changer for AVEVA and our joint customers. By combining AVEVA’s and Aras’s 75 years technology experience, marks a formidable digital-centric execution solution, uniting established AVEVA tools with the powerful digital transformation capabilities of the Aras low-code platform. Together, we're on a mission to digitize industry processes that have long been document-centric, unlocking untapped potential and driving innovation to a data-centric future. We're thrilled about the possibilities that lie ahead as this collaboration is not just about technology; it's about transforming how businesses operate and make decisions. We're proud that Aras is silver sponsors for this year's AVEVA World, and we look forward to showcasing the incredible capabilities that this partnership brings to the table.”
