HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. -- January 30, 2013

The Eventful Group announced today that hundreds of companies using SAP®
solutions for EAM will gather at the ninth annual SAP-Centric EAM conference
to share their success stories, discuss challenges, and exchange ideas.
Through the comprehensive program layout, companies will pinpoint new and
innovative ways to use SAP PM to get business results. SAP-Centric EAM is
taking place March 3-6, 2013, at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort &
Spa, CA.

“Built for the community, by the community, SAP-Centric EAM is North America’s
most comprehensive and on-target program focused on SAP solutions for
Enterprise Asset Management,” said Steve Sinkoff, managing director, Americas,
The Eventful Group. “SAP EAM experts will share their experiences from
hundreds of projects and SAP EAM implementations, so the community can learn
about and avoid some of the challenges others have faced along the way.”

SAP-Centric EAM presenters share important take-aways from their keynote
sessions at this year’s conference:

Achim Krüger, Vice President EAM Solutions, SAP AG

"Of course you can use your SAP system to support maintenance execution,
butimaginehow life could be if you used it for linking asset management to
your business objectives."

Joseph Grobler, Global Operations Director, Reveal USA

"The future value opportunities for your business can be found in your data,
make sure your data is accurate and reliable."

Harold Hambrose, CEO & Founder, Electronic Ink

“Ourskyscrapers, office parks and plants aren’t filled with process flow
diagrams. They are filled with people. Here is where innovation will be
discovered.”

Robert (Bob) Williamson, CMRP, CPMM, MIAM, President, Strategic Work Systems,
Inc.

"Why is it that we often struggle to improve the way our equipment and
facilities run- faster, better, consistently? It should be a lot easier...
and it can be easy. Reliability is more about the 'human factors' than it is
about new technologies and tools."

Mark Foster, Industrial 3D Specialist, New Zealand Steel

"The visual plant can be likened to having a pair of X-ray vision goggles for
your plant—enabling real world transparency of your assets while navigating
through layers of digital asset information."

Terry Wireman,Vice President & Acclaimed Author, Vesta Partners

“Unless organizations can remove the silos between their financial,
engineering, operational, and maintenance organizations, they will never fully
realize the benefits that they could achieve with asset management
strategies.”

SAP-Centric EAM will feature thought-provoking presentations and case studies,
organized in five tracks of content: master data, planning & scheduling,
analytics, reporting & history, expert advice, and
transition/sustainment/evolution, ASUG-led roundtables, deep-dive workshops,
and a first-timer’s session. New to the program this year, the EAM Education
Center will help drive and motivate the community to take advantage of new
technologies and tools within the SAP ecosystem. In addition, the entire SAP
EAM Solutions Team will be on-site to answer questions.

Online registration remains open through February 27, 2013.
