Enterprise Asset Management Solutions
The Maximo Enterprise Asset Management – EAM solution takes the power, performance and possibilities of enterprise asset management to an entirely new level. Built on a single software platform, Maximo Asset Management delivers a comprehensive view of all asset types – production, facilities, transportation and IT -across your enterprise. Implementing an Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) solution involves much more than identifying the product and installing software, loading a database, and user training. Advanced EAM systems are integrated into a business and configured to match specific maintenance management requirements, whilst data is often shared and integrates with other enterprise systems. Current processes may be re-engineered to reflect best practice, and legacy applications and hardware have to be considered.

Businesses are under a number of influences that are driving their digital transformation initiatives such as moving to cloud, upgrading servers, mobile initiatives, using real-time data, connecting with partners and improving customer experience and so on. Being able to leverage existing systems/investments plays a critical role in speeding up the rate of digital transformation. APIs are at the heart of this. They increase agility and empower business teams to self-serve IT, helping business and IT teams to work more effectively together. Integration connects legacy systems that are critical to the successful running of the business to digital initiatives that drive business growth and innovation.
