IBM has recently release a Redbook publication “Maximo Asset Management Essentials V7.1 Implementer’s Guide”. This guide to implementing Maximo Asset Management Essentials provides general product information and covers the planning, installation, and initial configuration processes.


Within the IBM Maximo Asset Management product family, Essentials is an ideal Asset Management Solution for smaller organizations that require a subset of the extensive range of features in the IBM Maximo Asset Management product. Essentials enables smaller organizations and departments to organize, track, and manage their asset and work management processes, and to implement a maintenance regimen based on industry leading technology and best practices.


We at Peningo Systems recommend this Redbook to any Asset Management Consultant who will be involved in the implementation of Maximo Asset Management Essentials.



About IBM Tivoli Maximo Asset Management Essentials:



IBM Maximo Asset Management Essentials is an asset management system that provides asset management, maintenance management, inventory management, and purchasing capabilities that help corporations maximize productivity and increase the life of assets.


This solution is targeted toward small-to-medium businesses that do not have multiple sites and simply need a subset of the core functionality of Maximo Asset Management. The enterprise edition of Maximo Asset Management has been a leader in enterprise asset management for many years. IBM Maximo is the only solution to have been recognized in the EAM Leader’s Quadrant 11 times since 1998.


Smaller businesses can benefit from the core functionality of Maximo Asset Management Essentials and do not need an enterprise-level solution for asset management. Thus, Maximo Asset Management Essentials is a lighter, less complex version of Maximo Asset Management V7.1. The differences in functionality are discussed in subsequent sections of this book.


Maximo enables companies to manage assets by providing information and real-time data, thereby enabling the creation of a strategy for maintenance management through information-based decision making capabilities and predicting the impact on productivity of asset downtime for all categories of assets.

About Edward Pellon

About Peningo Systems ( ) Peningo Systems and it founders have been involved in IT Consulting for over 30 years. Our goal is to support the individual IT Consultant by providing an avenue for them to be in contact directly to the end client. By doing this we reduce the many layers and tiers of organizations that are involved with placement of an IT Consultant. By reducing these layers and tiers, cost can be significantly reduced to the end client, while still providing the room for the Consultant to increase their revenues. Peningo is a for profit organization. We have decided to earn our “keep” by advocating, establishing and supporting a “market place” where the IT consultant and the “end client” may function without the interference of tiers of “prestigious” companies that bring to the consulting assignment excessive Markups and very little else. At Peningo we feel that the IT Consultant should be paid adequate rates commensurate with their skills and the personal sacrifice inherent in the life of an IT consultant. These allows us to field capable, motivated consultants that will contribute successfully to the “end client’s” systems development and implementation, while attracting to the IT industry new talent that otherwise would go to more lucrative pursuits. With the elimination of the “prestigious ones” there will be costs savings that will allow for the consultant to be paid a higher rate and for the client to reduce its costs. Both objectives represents Peningo’s Mission.
