On a scale of one to ten, I would give IBM Maximo an eight.

My advice for anybody who is considering Maximo is that it is very comprehensive, provided you like to fill in a lot of information. It collects a lot of data and a lot of analysis can be done. However, in our experience, we find that people don't want to do it. If they are grouping jobs then they don't want to enter a lot of information. In this case, entering the minimum is better. This is the biggest problem that we are facing. There is a lot of work to do and following all of the processes and procedures is time-consuming because of the data entry. I would rate this solution a five out of ten.

Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: * Capabilities * Support * Reliability * How will it help the organization's decision-making. * Running costs and starting costs.

They have a preview site where you can log in as a user and try it for yourself. That is a really good way to get a feel for the solution; better than Youtube or whitepapers and things like that. You have a preview site, you log in, and you can try it. I would give Maximo a seven out of 10 because it's good, but it's not too user-friendly, and some of the issues we have come across, the impact to us was a little too much to be coming from a big company such as IBM.

I do not know about the price of the solution. However, this has been an expensive project overall.
IBM keeps its pricing confidential. The old list of pricing on all versions below Version 8 is extremely expensive. However, an IBM resource or Business Partner can route a request for special pricing and justify a good opportunity to get approved for a competitive rate. The new MAS - Maximo Application Suite (v8) will follow a different pricing model and is being positioned as an improvement on licensing structure compared to its predecessor.  Implementation and support services for Maximo depends on: *Complexity of the implementation - a measure of difficulty for a tailor-fit implementation of Maximo based on an improved version of the client's business processes. This also covers all integration requirements for third-party systems such as ERP, DCS, CO, etc. *Project Timeline and Activities - estimated duration and the activities for the project delivery.
