IBM Maximo Other Advice

They have a preview site where you can log in as a user and try it for yourself. That is a really good way to get a feel for the solution; better than Youtube or whitepapers and things like that. You have a preview site, you log in, and you can try it. I would give Maximo a seven out of 10 because it's good, but it's not too user-friendly, and some of the issues we have come across, the impact to us was a little too much to be coming from a big company such as IBM.

I rate it a nine out of 10. If it's not the best EAM product, it is one of the best out there. Make sure that you understand your work/asset management and other processes before trying to implement. Where possible, the product should be configured to fit within your processes, trying to avoid changes to the system that will make it hard to upgrade/update, as IBM provides frequent patches and updates.

There are add-ons for calibration, scheduler, transportation, service provider, government, oil and gas, asset management configuration, and linear assets. It is a very solid J2EE product with great middleware and webserver; scales very well, and can use one of three RDBMS systems. Refine your maintenance processes, do not skimp on hardware.

Plan out the implementation and involve all levels from users to management. I have used versions 4 through the most current version 7.6, and it keeps getting better. I have been working with Maximo for twelve years. This is the Cadillac of asset management applications. View full review »
