Blog Hero IT Cables - Copperleaf Decision Analytics

Have you ever felt uneasy about the risks posed by your aging infrastructure? Do you understand how different levels of investment will impact risk?

Proactively manage risk exposure

Copperleaf® helps organizations accurately predict sustainment needs and plan proactive interventions to manage the business to an agreed risk profile. Our software enables asset managers to:

  • Leverage available asset information to model risk and how it changes over time
  • Balance asset sustainment investments with potential growth/strategic investments
  • Identify which investments to defer when there are funding or cash flow constraints
  • Create, analyze, and compare asset sustainment strategies—to make informed decisions that maximize value while proactively managing risk


Planning for the long term

The discipline of asset management has a fundamental role to play in helping meet the needs of society—today and in the future. Now more than ever, it’s vital for companies managing critical infrastructure to ensure they make the highest-value investment decisions to ensure the long-term sustainability of assets that are essential to our everyday lives.

In this video, asset managers from Network Rail, National Grid, and Northumbrian Water discuss how the Copperleaf Decision Analytics Solution is helping them make the right investments at the right time and demonstrate value for money from investments more accurately.

Using the Copperleaf Value Framework to value IT investments

IT departments have very similar challenges to their asset management counterparts. They need to manage a pipeline of candidate projects, and allocate their limited funds and resources to get the best results. The Copperleaf Value Framework can be configured to measure the key things that deliver benefit to the organization so that trade-offs can be made with confidence. Some common value measures to assess the benefits of IT investments include cost, financial benefits, IT capacity risk, security risk, license risk, innovation premium, business continuity risk, etc.

SaaS vs. on-premise: which implementation model is best for AIPM?

As part of an evaluation of Asset Investment Planning and Management (AIPM) solutions—or any enterprise software application for that matter—there are two key questions to consider:

  • Which licensing model is best suited to your organization – Software as a Service (SaaS) or a perpetual license?
  • Where should you run the application – in your own data centers or hosted in the cloud?

Each of these licensing models and hosting options presents its own unique advantages and there is no no one-size-fits-all solution. It comes down to understanding the pros and cons of the various options to decide what makes the most sense for your organization.

A streamlined approach to asset risk modeling

VISUE provides Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) and IT Security Services to 13 electricity distribution system operators (DSOs) in Denmark. These operators do not have the capacity or funding to implement an Asset Investment Planning and Management (AIPM) solution in each DSO. Find out how they joined forces with Copperleaf to investigate asset management methodologies and develop a value-based approach to plan investments and manage risk in a streamlined and optimized way.


Making the highest-value asset investment decisions

Network Rail selected the Copperleaf Decision Analytics Solution to help manage Britain’s railway infrastructure, which includes 20,000 miles of track, 30,000 bridges, tunnels and viaducts, and thousands of signals, level crossings and stations. The Copperleaf solution provides an enterprise-wide platform for strategic asset modeling and investment planning. It is being used to forecast work volumes, outputs, and expenditure across Network Rail’s entire asset base.


The Copperleaf solution has allowed National Grid to transform and modernize existing business capabilities as well as embed new functions in the planning and optimization space.

I think the distribution system operators realized that IT support of asset management is only a small part of the picture. Streamlining processes and preparing the organization for a new way of investment decision making and project management is the more important part of this journey.
