AVEVA Group Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions
In September 2021, Aramco and AVEVA announced their intention to form a strategic alliance. Focused on driving sustainability in the region through digital transformation, the partnership will help enable AVEVA to establish their largest digital hub, with an R&D capability, in the Middle East, headquartered in Saudi Arabia. This partnership will represent a significant investment for AVEVA which is also looking to create up to 300 high skill new jobs in the Kingdom by 2030.
In July 2020 Aveva introduced the AVEVA Insight OMI app, a first in the industry to infuse real-time artificial intelligence into an operator’s decision-making as well as improve overall operational agility. The smart app provides industrial businesses with an accelerated path toward implementing artificial intelligence in the control room or on the plant floor, presenting real-time anomaly detection in a context-aware OMI visualization display. It will benefit operators, engineers, and operations managers from various industries including Water and Wastewater, Energy, Food & Beverage amongst others.
The AVEVA Insight OMI app introduces AI capabilities into the AVEVA System Platform, formerly Wonderware, and leverages predictive early warning and automatic detection of unusual operational behavior. This provides users with early notification so they can quickly resolve issues before they become critical business problems such as unplanned downtime and production losses. A simple management interface enables operations, maintenance and production teams to quickly train the AI engine to adapt to the enterprise’s specific implementation. An intuitive thumbs-up or thumbs-down confirmation ensures AI-driven notifications are relevant to the needs of the user and support overall enterprise objectives, with no programming or data science knowledge required. This closed-loop feedback improves the accuracy of the AI prediction engine over time and enables users to see what matters. As anomalous patterns are identified, they can be captured and presented by the app within an organization’s on-premise HMI/SCADA solution, delivering insights directly where operators need it.
In February 2020 Aveva has unveiled its new Discrete Lean Management software to support digital transformation in the discrete manufacturing market1. The new offering improves operational efficiency through the digitalization of lean work management for both manual and automated production lines.

AVEVA Discrete Lean Management is designed to address the issues faced by operating manufacturing plants still using paper-based systems for lean and work order management, work instructions and data collection procedures. It enables physical records to be replaced with digital tools that mitigate the risk of manual processes and provides real time visibility into production performance allowing team collaboration in response to production issues.
AVEVA's Cloud products are designed to be flexible, scalable and available everywhere and are offered in each of AVEVA's Business Units. The Group achieved growth of some 200% in Cloud orders with significant new order wins, such as Veolia Water and continued expansion from existing customers as they increased consumption, by for example rolling solutions out across their asset bases.
In April 2019, AVEVA decided to make a significant addition to its comprehensive Asset Performance Management (APM) portfolio with the acquisition of the software assets of MaxGrip, subject to approval from MaxGrip’s shareholders. MaxGrip, an AVEVA partner since 2017, is a pioneer in optimizing asset performance with Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) solutions.
AVEVA Group Risks and Challenges
Manufacturing slowdown in markets like China could dim AVEVA's short-term outlook.
In December 2015, Aveva has called off its £1,3bn reverse takeover by France’s Schneider Electric, citing unforeseen costs and risks associated with the proposed merger. The complex deal would have involved Aveva acquiring Schneider’s industrial software unit — Schneider Software — but the French company would, in turn, have taken a majority stake in Aveva.
Furthermore, AVEVA appointed Lisa Johnston as Chief Marketing Officer (CMO). Lisa takes on global responsibility for AVEVA’s brand and marketing initiatives. She will build on AVEVA’s credentials as a global leader working to accelerate the digital transformation of industrial companies around the world.
