How to update successfully?
Updating software for a more recent version of IBM Maximo, Control Desk, and TRIRIGA can be difficult to judge, and also requires the ability to understand complex configurations, customisations, previous developments, and integration with other systems.
Updating is a crucial part of the life cycle of software and must be done. There are many reasons why you may need to update your software: conforming to industry standards, obsolescence of your current version, or quite simply, the need to benefit from more recent functions.
Let’s plan your success together!
Whether you wholeheartedly welcome, avoid, or delay change, the updating of IBM Maximo, Control Desk, and TRIRIGA requires careful planning and educated decision making. Supported by the right team, your migration project will be expedient, within budget, and won’t disturb your commercial activities.
Here is a short list of things to prioritise and monetise when planning a software updating project:
- >Tests: validate that your customisations and work flow are unhindered by the new version
- In-house personnel: make sure to have enough in-house staff mobilised to assist
- Customisations: analyse whether customisations can be simplified or whether the most recent “basic” version can support your needs
- User settings: facilitate user collaboration by organising workshops on the new functions and improvements according to usage
How do you reduce risks and obtain tangible results ?
The leaders at TriNmax began their careers in the asset management industry in 1996 with GMAO, Maximo Advantage, and Maximo 3. After many software updating experiences our leaders have proven expertise and a comprehensive understanding of the stakes at hand. The inherent challenges can be daunting but, luckily, we have the best team to minimise the functional and/or technical impacts of updating (be they operational changes or application differences). Thanks to our high level of competence, we can precisely estimate the scope of your updating project whilst also taking into account organisational impact; we can suggest access to a current version, thereby simplifying the overall challenges of current and future migrations.
To reduce the risks when updating IBM Maximo, Control Desk, and TRIRIGA solutions, we can recommend using specific IBM solutions by sector. These prepackaged solutions, also known as Verticals, are customised, and take into consideration the operations of your given industry.

An example ?
Take a situation where the linear assets (roads, rails, pipelines, etc.) presented in IBM Maximo solution are different from the IBM Maximo solution for Healthcare. To address the issue, the advanced security settings of IBM Maximo for Transportation, as well as IBM Maximo for Service Provider, are adapted to the particular industry. The deployment of these prepackaged solutions is faster because they contain their own configuration, thereby reducing implementation costs. They also provide a rapid return on investment (ROI) because they are already adapted to the reality of your business.
