Abstract

End of Support (EOS) Announced for IBM® Maximo® Asset Management 7.6.1.x, Industry Solutions & Add-ons

Content

On 12 April 2022, end of support for all IBM Maximo Asset Management 7.6.1.x and compatible versions of products, including industry solutions and add-ons, was announced with IBM Announcement Letter 922-024.

Effective 30 September 2025, fixes, patches, and telephone support are no longer provided for Maximo 7.6.1.x and its corresponding components and add-ons of the same version. From now until that date, additional fix packs maybe delivered to address critical defects, security vulnerabilities, and currency updates.

The path forward for all Maximo EAM customers is to trade-up to the IBM Maximo Application Suite. Maximo 7.6.1 is the last release of Maximo Asset Management 7.6.x. Extended notification has been given from the time of this announcement to the effective end of support date to give sufficient time to plan and migrate to the suite. There are also options for on-premise customers to move to a managed service or SaaS alternative. 

There are many resources available to find more information on the Maximo Application Suite including:

For customers currently on a Flexible Contract Terms (FCT) contract, End of Support requires moving to Passport Advantage (PA). 

To connect with IBM for more information, Book a Consultation on the Maximo Application Suite Overview page.

Your IBM sales representative is the best resource for assisting with the migration of current entitlement to the Application Suite. For North America customers, to find out who your current sales contact is, reach out to Valerie Gooch at valerieg@us.ibm.com and she will assist you.
