Maximo Application Suite is an integrated suite, enabling easier access to a full set of asset lifecycle applications, with flexibility to start at any point in the asset lifecycle and expand into other areas. This flexibility uses a simplified, suite-based licensing structure and does not require additional provisioning. Deployment flexibility, through Red Hat ® OpenShift ® and hybrid cloud, enables diverse options for provisioning Maximo Application Suite across multiple clouds, on premises, or hosted as a managed service on IBM Cloud ®.

Starting with IBM Maximo Manage and expanding access to asset performance management applications, the Maximo Application Suite portfolio of offerings can enable your organization to obtain operational visibility of assets through their lifecycle with the potential for faster ROI, increased productivity, and operational uptime.

The Maximo Application Suite streamlines installation and administration, while enhancing the user experience with shared data, workflow, and user experience. Infused with AI, this offering is purpose-built to accelerate digital transformation of traditional asset maintenance into AI-driven maintenance.
