If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering IBM Maximo, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
On a scale of one to ten, I would give IBM Maximo an eight.
I would rate this solution a six out of ten.
My advice for anybody who is considering Maximo is that it is very comprehensive, provided you like to fill in a lot of information. It collects a lot of data and a lot of analysis can be done. However, in our experience, we find that people don't want to do it. If they are grouping jobs then they don't want to enter a lot of information. In this case, entering the minimum is better. This is the biggest problem that we are facing. There is a lot of work to do and following all of the processes and procedures is time-consuming because of the data entry. I would rate this solution a five out of ten.
Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: * Capabilities * Support * Reliability * How will it help the organization's decision-making. * Running costs and starting costs.
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.
