Learn more about what's new and changed in Maximo Manage.

New Asset Data Dictionary for integrating and synchronizing data across applications

The Asset Data Dictionary repository of data and metadata facilitates data sharing and integration between Maximo Manage and other applications. Using predefined artifacts in the Maximo Manage integration framework, you can synchronize data in Maximo Manage with the Asset Data Dictionary, which in turn integrates the data into other applications, such as Maximo Monitor. Synchronization can be performed manually when needed, at regularly scheduled intervals, or as event-based updates when data changes.

Learn more about the Asset Data Dictionary.

Support for initial data loads from Maximo Monitor to Maximo Manage

You can use the Asset Data Dictionary to load data for organizations, sites, assets, and locations from Maximo Monitor into Maximo Manage. Use this integration only for a one-time, initial load of data into Maximo Manage. After the initial data is loaded, Maximo Manage takes ownership of the data and manages any subsequent changes to the data.

New process for integrating metrics data from IoT sensor devices

You can add metric data that IoT monitoring systems gather from sensor devices to meters in Maximo Manage applications.

Ability to use OAuth access standards

If you want to use an OAuth authentication service to provide secure delegated access to Maximo Manage data, you can configure OAuth access in the End Points application.

Integration framework support for OR and AND operators in the same OSLC WHERE clause

Update feature is removed from inventory analysis reports

Effective with Manage 8.3, the Update button is removed from the following inventory analysis reports:
  • Inventory ABC Analysis
  • Inventory EOQ Analysis
  • Inventory ROP Analysis
  • Inventory ABC Transaction Date Analysis

Although you can still run the reports to obtain an analysis of your inventory, you cannot update the Manage database with the analytic values that the reports calculate.

Enhanced features for persistent volume storage

The following enhancements are added for configuring persistent storage:
Dynamic provisioning for persistent volume claims
When a persistent storage volume is declared, if you do not specify a persistent volume claim, the workspace operator creates a persistent volume claim that is dynamically provisioned based on the storage class.
Learn more about persistent storage.
Ability to configure persistent volume storage for specific server bundles
You can now create persistent volume claims for specific server bundles. For example, you can deploy a server for processing JMS messages and create a persistent volume claim to provide persistent storage just for that server.
