If you have purchased or are considering purchasing one of the IBM Anywhere Mobile Platform products, you may be wondering how the apps that are delivered with the products can be configured to suit the needs of your mobile workers.
The ability to test and configure the mobile apps is one of the many beneficial features of IBM Maximo Anywhere and IBM TRIRIGA Anywhere. You can install an integrated development environment (IDE) that includes IBM Worklight Studio and the Android or iOS development tools.
Sometimes, it feels like the day doesn’t have enough hours to get everything done. Time is always at a premium. Finding ways to save time has become something of an art form.
Automation scripts can reduce the time that you spend on automating tasks because you do not need to recompile Java™ files or restart the server. And now, in version 7.6, automation scripts are expanded and enhanced to provide even more opportunities to save time. You can now do the following:

For the first time in Maximo Asset Management 7.6, you'll get to see a set of videos that describe a subset of the enhancements that are included in the release. These videos are short and sweet (the longest is just five minutes!) but will help to introduce you to the usability enhancements.
The videos are helpfully divided into two playlists, depending on your level of interest. The first playlist is called Overview of the usability enhancements and is aimed at anyone who wants to get a high-level summary of the enhancements. The... [More]

I've been working with the new Maximo 7.6 installer for a while now. Compared to the installer used with Maximo 7.1 and 7.5, it is a big improvement.
First, you have many fewer screens to go through. At most, you'll see 11 screens, instead of more than 25. Each screen provides field validation for your entries.
Second, before you install anything, you can review, validate and modify all of the entries, rather than waiting until everything has been entered and pressing that next button.
Third, there is additional... [More]

There is a way to activate MDB's for every member of the the MIF Cluster that is hosting a
CQIN queue by checking a box “Always activate MDB's in all servers.” in Activation Specification tab. The database engine should be monitored after this action for possible contentions or number of the connection.
All email messages have or should have a content-type header field which will determine how that email is handled. The Email Listener is not a true, full service email client and is therefore not as flexible and forgiving as email clients [such as Notes & Outlook] in handling the full range of email formats. The purpose of this article is to set the expectations for what content-types the listener will process. Note that the content-type type attribute of an email is distinct from character set which denotes how text for... [More]

With this function you can choose the frequency of billing generation and group these b ill batches by order number, customer cost center, customer PO, or reporting user, expanding the possible ways to organize customer billings.
Take a look at these two new topics to learn how to use this function:

An important part of of any software implementation is data loading.
In Maximo / TPAE, one of the preferred solutions for that end is MIF or Maximo Integration Framework.
The advantage over other routines is that it goes through the MBOs and Field Classes validations to enforce all Maximo business logic over the transacted data.
If you are a Maximo user, by now you probably know that we may use flat files to load data into Maximo through MIF. Easily enough you just have to go to the application, click a button and load... [More]
Importing data is supported by standard Maximo Integration Framework as well as different tools from the business partner landscape.
In a past PoC I was forced to import massive data with bad quality, agile data structures (implies changing data structures from day to day) and last but not least pay regard on what was already imported into Maximo. Let me share my experience on how we did it.
Most of the mentioned tools using an approach of a 1:1 import of data, means you have to take care of data quality before you start import.... [More]
