Aspen Technology has expanded its strategic alliance with Microsoft to embrace AspenOne, its latest solution for enterprise operations management (EOM). AspenTech has agreed to deploy key ‘current and future’ Microsoft technologies across its product portfolio. These include SharePoint Portal Server, BizTalk Server, SQL Server Analysis Services and SQL Server Reporting Services.
Microsoft industry manager Charles Johnson said, ‘Our companies can now jointly address areas such as enterprise operations management with solutions that ensure optimization and automation of business processes through improved communication and collaboration delivered by Microsoft’s integrated platform.’
The alliance also includes joint marketing initiatives aimed at accelerating market awareness and acceptance of EOM solutions. These bridge the gap between ERP and the control systems (DCS/PLC) that manage plant processes. Aspen’s client portfolio includes BP, ChevronTexaco, ExxonMobil, Shell, and Total.
