Contact us today to learn how to upgrade for free

Many organizations are faced with the threat of de-support of older software and hardware from their IT organization. In addition, IBM no longer provides product updates and support for many of the older versions of Maximo.

The latest version of Maximo uses modern service oriented architecture (SOA) web platforms and database technologies which provide easy access and navigation for users, as well as strong integration capabilities with third party applications such as back-end finance and accounting systems, HR, SCADA, fuel management, and others. IBM also offers numerous mobile and Maximo industry-specific solutions that were not available with earlier releases.
