Maximo Upgrades

As the largest and most experienced IBM Maximo services team in Europe, we are ideally placed to help your business take full advantage of its Maximo solution.

IBM has already withdrawn support for earlier versions of Maximo up to version 6.1 and Maximo 6.2 reached End of Support (EOS) on 30 September 2013. This means that fixes, patches, and telephone support are now no longer provided by IBM for all versions of Maximo V6.x. The EOS for Maximo version 7.1 will also be effective from 30 April 2015.

All Maximo customers who are currently up-to-date on IBM Subscription and Support are entitled to upgrade to the latest release, V7.6, which includes many product enhancements and a vast range of add-ons and industry solutions, such as Maximo Scheduler, Health, Safety and Environment add ons, and new enhanced Industry Solutions.
