IBM Maximo – Work Centers 2.0 – Presented by IBM / Maximo
The Maximo user experience evolved again. Since Maximo 220.127.116.11, Work Centers have been seen by new and existing users. It’s a simpler and fresher way to analyze and manipulate data. With each new release, the user experience is being improved and the applications are getting even more connected to each other. This presentation will demonstrate the product and take away all your doubts about the new Work Centers way of working.
What Real Change Management Looks Like – Presented by the City of Roseville
Long before you’ve made Maximo the best choice for your asset management solution, you have to ask yourself, “How do we create and share a vision that will sustain us through a successful implementation?” The topic of Change Management may occasionally cause eyes to roll, but half measures in its application can cause a grinding sound in the gears of your best implementation efforts.

Maximo 7.5 End of Service, a new beginning with Maximo 7.6 – Discussion Group Topic
Everyone knows that the end of service for Maximo 7.5 is on April 30th, 2018 (if you don’t know…now you do!), but not everyone knows how to get from where they are today to the latest version of Maximo. In fact, many of us may “fondly” remember the pain of the last upgrade. This discussion group will talk through what elements are required to make your 7.5 upgrade project a success. In addition, we will talk beyond “technical upgrades” and look at some of the Maximo 7.6 features. Can those new features be incorporated to improve your organization’s current use of Maximo?
