December 3, 2014 | 10:00 - 11:00 am CST

According to multiple sources, IBM Maximo Asset Management is the best-selling Global EAM Platform. It has a broad range of applications in industries ranging from manufacturing and infrastructure to transportation and real estate. Maximo grants companies more insight and control over assets to optimize performance while reducing operational costs and maximizing return on assets.

The most recently released iteration of Maximo is version 7.5 (with Maximo 7.6 soon to be released), which adds an array of new features and functionality. The new content that was added with 7.5 was intended to help improve organizational efficiency in asset management while streamlining business processes and integrating data from legacy systems more easily. Specifically, it improves on five (5) different areas:

  1. Supply Chain
  2. Work and Asset Management
  3. Usability
  4. Migration Manager
  5. Deployment Engine

This webinar will promote a discussion on Maximo 7.5 Upgrade Best Practices. As the end of support for all prior versions of Maximo 7.5 approaches in April 2015, it is imperative that organizations stay ahead of the curve and upgrade early. The discussion will revolve around the following main areas:

  1. Upgrade Overview
  2. New Features
  3. Technology Considerations
  4. Industry Solutions
  5. Discussion on Maximo 7.6
  6. General Observations and Commentary
