IBM has already withdrawn support for earlier versions of Maximo up to version 7.1. This means that fixes, patches, and telephone support are now no longer provided by IBM for Maximo V7.1.
All Maximo customers who are currently up-to-date on IBM Subscription and Support are entitled to upgrade to the latest release, V7.6, which includes many product enhancements and a vast range of add-ons and industry solutions, such as Maximo Scheduler, Health, Safety and Environment add ons, and new enhanced Industry Solutions.
Upgrade Considerations
  • Database size, including number of records (voluminous data takes more time)
  • Extent of configurations
  • Degree of customizations applied to the database
  • Screen customization
  • Report customization
  • Upgrading of Maximo add-on products and modules
The standard upgrade approach is intended to ensure a successful upgrade and it is widely followed approach by the Implementation partners across the industries. The parallel upgrade approach aims at reducing the overall downtime if the organization operates close to 24×7 basis. Usage of this approach is limited due to the complexities involved in manually uploading the transaction data from the older version to the upgraded version.
