Mobile Considerations
There are many options 3rd party mobility options available to Maximo customers, but here is why IBM’s native mobile applications deliver an optimum mobile experience:

1. Although Maximo provides a very open platform for customers and vendors to develop their own custom app, nobody understands Maximo’s platform better than IBM. IBM knows how and which APIs will provide the optimal data set for a given task. Nobody knows the EAM product like the EAM vendor.

2. IBM’s Maximo Mobile Apps are supported by…IBM. IBM has far more resources to handle issues and provide continued development of the product line than does a 3rd party consulting firm or your internal IT department, regardless of their high level of skill. Why risk your deployment on a “one hit wonder”.

3. IBM’s Maximo Mobile apps are supported by the Developing apps that can tolerate disruptions in connectivity through an offline mode is not something anyone but the software vendor is likely to pull off very successfully. In addition, IBM’s Maximo Mobile apps leverage Maximo’s inherent security capabilities.

4. When considering 3rd party mobile solutions, care needs to be taken to ensure the proper IBM Maximo licensing is in place.
