IBM Maximo named a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Asset Management!



I'm sure the Maximo community is as pleased as I am to see IBM named a Leader in the latest Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Asset Management Software (released November 2017). It has held this position since 1996!

In a market that is very mature, it is great to see IBM consistently perform against the most prominent EAM products worldwide.

Its broad range of core EAM functionality makes Maximo suitable for almost every asset-intensive industry.  Plus, with both on-premises and cloud/SaaS delivery, it is scalable for large and smaller organizations.



Completeness of Vision

To have ‘completeness of vision’ means that IBM is listening to and understanding their clients’ future wants and needs.

When we look at the Maximo roadmap for 2018, we can see lots of investment and opportunities in the following areas:

  • Augmented Reality/Machine Learning
  • Cloud/SaaS Delivery
  • Mobility
  • Blockchain
  • Real-time analytics
  • Integration to ERP, CRM and GIS
  • Integration to IoT, OT and APM

On its own, IBM Maximo is a leading EAM product. By extending it with these market trends, we get a solution which is hard to beat! This part of the tale is exciting for everyone who works with and supports Maximo each day.


Global EAM Support Community

IBM has a mature and extensive global community of EAM support resources and partners, helping to minimize implementation risks and support shortfalls. 

BPD Zenith is part of the proven ecosystem for Maximo. Having worked with Maximo for over 24 years, many of our staff have dedicated all or large parts of their careers to working with this technology. Why? Because Maximo is a true business application and it is amazing to see the different ways in which our clients leverage the platform.

In fact, you can hear first-hand how Maximo runs businesses at one of the many Maximo User Groups (one for every flavour you can imagine, and on a regional and national scale). With a huge peer community, user groups are always well attended, and everyone leaves having learned something new – us included!

The latest product version, Maximo 7.6, is very deep and very modern, with lots of add-ons and partnerships.

I hope you all feel as lucky as I do to be a part of this community!
