The Maximo Anywhere architecture is based on IBM
It uses the IBM Worklight product as the basis of mobile development platform. This is an important characteristic, because many customers are looking for a mobile solution that is valid across the board and can be used in a mobile standardization effort in the customer environment.
IBM Worklight provides a standards based, flexible, secure and consumable mobile development platform which goes beyond mobile app UI creation to deliver mobile optimized, standards-based, middleware and tools for enterprise-grade mobile applications and services creation.
The picture below shows the main components of the IBM Worklight product (which is embedded as part of Maximo Anywhere).
