GORHAM, Maine and RESTON, Va., May 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Strategic Maintenance Solutions, Inc. (SMS), a technology firm focused on Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) and the Industrial IoT, and Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider®, today announced a partnership. Under the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as SMS’s Master Government Aggregator™, making the company’s industry-leading connectivity solutions for Splunk and EAM solutions available to the public sector through Carahsoft’s NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V contracts and National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) ValuePoint cooperative purchasing contract and the company’s reseller partners.
“Carahsoft has a strong record as a well-known and trusted IT solutions provider for the public sector.

The SMS Splunk Apps for EAM and Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS) provide connectivity, dashboards and KPIs for real time EAM/CMMS monitoring. The SMS Apps provide simple data correlation between the physical asset and the asset within the EAM system to provide condition-based and predictive maintenance that enable real-time automated work order creation. The deployment of these technologies has led to successes across manufacturing, facilities and building management for monitoring HVAC systems and providing energy usage insights for increased efficiency.
“Many of our public sector customers are already using enterprise asset management software within their environments,” said Frank Dimina, Vice President of Public Sector, Splunk. “SMS provides the value of operationalizing data for our most advanced customers. Splunk is excited to have SMS and Carahsoft working with us to help bring our Data-to-Everything Platform’s capabilities deeper into mission-critical initiatives across our customer base.”
“With increasing numbers of IoT devices and connected systems being deployed every day, leveraging the data these systems collect to produce actionable insights is a key advantage for our government customers,” said Ebben Yazel, Splunk Technology Alliances Manager at Carahsoft. “Partnering with SMS allows our existing Splunk customers to optimize their EAM strategies and further mature their deployments to provide increased visibility between physical assets and their virtual touchpoints. We look forward to working with SMS, Splunk and our reseller partners to optimize public sector agencies’ maintenance and management strategies.”
