IBM Maximo Spatial leverages ESRI ArcGIS Server

Joint offering blends ESRI and Maximo Java objects to bring geographical decision support to MRO.

A new solution from IBM’s Maximo unit brings geospatial query and visualization capability to the capture, analysis, and reporting of assets, locations, and work orders. IBM’s Maximo asset management solution has been extended with ESRI’s ArcGIS Server to spatialize asset data. The idea is that geospatial context will help resources allocation for servicing and emergency maintenance.


IBM Maximo VP Jack Young said, ‘Maximo Spatial is the first fully GIS-enabled enterprise asset management application. Users can now leverage business processes and the power of GIS functionality within a single environment. We look forward to working with the joint ESRI/Maximo user community to implement this solution.’


ESRI director Dave Wieseler added, ‘Our architecture enables the integration of our respective technologies. ArcGIS’ ArcObjects and Java capabilities have been seamlessly integrated with the Java-based IBM Maximo Business Objects to provide an integrated solution and database that respects enterprise-level IT architecture with a scalable growth path.’
