Last year, we met with a number of customers across different industries to discuss your needs for the readme file that accompanies the Maximo Asset Management 7.5 fix packs.
You told us that you'd like to be able to retrieve information more easily, that you'd like more information on behavior changes, you'd also like security items highlighted, and generally that you'd like us to reduce the time that you need to spend testing a fix pack before you roll it into a production environment.

Maximo Ad Hoc reporting enables your Power users to create their own reports - for their unique business needs. One of the key components of... [More]
Security is more important than ever, and securing applications is a priority to every company. Many clients ask for documentation on configuring Maximo for LDAP authentication. You end up having to review many different articles to address a single topic, so I've decided to lay out a basic LDAP configuration using WebSphere 7 and Maximo 22.214.171.124.

1. Open the deploy.properties file under MaximoAywhere/platform/mobile/config path
