Administrating Maximo With Ease


Interloc prepares you to manage Maximo and administer your database and core applications.

 

Interloc works with you to ensure your system administrators are well versed in every aspect of Maximo and your core applications.  Some of the specific topics that we cover are database and schema management, application server setup and management, performance tuning, security set up, user creation and maintenance.

 

Managing KPIs

Interloc helps you accelerate your implementation of Key Performance Indicators (KPI) in Work Management, Asset Reliability, Supply Chain and Inventory Management and other areas.  Interloc will help you determine which KPIs to track and help set performance metrics in a standardized method. In this way, KPIs can drive best practices in key Enterprise Asset Management areas.

KPIs can be created in Maximo as a traditional report, or through the KPI Manager application.  This application allows you to create a SQL query statement that can be viewed in a tabular form, or even better as a chart or graphical KPI on selected user Start Centers.

 

 

Technical Best Practices

Interloc’s recommended standard technical best practices for administrators includes several tools and practices that we use or have developed, that are in place to ensure efficient and effective Maximo administration.  Based on our ongoing client engagement experience, we find that this is a unique administrative and system management benefit that Interloc brings to your project.

Interloc Services Tools and Policies

Interloc uses tools for testing automation and issues monitoring, and we have a code review policy in place to ensure that all code created for you is reviewed thoroughly in house before it is provided. We encourage you to adopt our best practices and tools, and to continue their use once Interloc’s initial involvement is complete.

Some of the tools Interloc uses and recommends are:

  • JUnit and Mockito, which enable cumbersome tests to be run automatically with little or no human intervention.
  • Redmine, which is an issue tracking tool that also enables users to prioritize and group issues and/or enhancements into a particular product release.
  • Interloc Release Manager, which provides for management of releases of different Interloc and custom software and functionality into Maximo to reduce time spent on testing cycles - for example, deploying custom Maximo code into Maximo without needing to shut the server down and redeploy.

Interloc can install and configure these tools for you during the course of your Maximo project.  In addition, these tools will remain available for use after Interloc's services are delivered, so that your organization will continue to benefit from them.

Business Best Practices

Interloc combines process requirements specific to your business with established practices that can be applied to organizations with a similar area of focus.  Adherence to best practices or standards is equally as important as the application of smart processes in the context of each specific client environment in terms of Project Management. 

The application of industry specific best practices and standards, however, often allows much less room for interpretation.  Interloc has worked with a number of clients in highly regulated industries such as Oil & Gas, Rail and Transportation, Government, and Utilities, and we are experienced at working within strict operational frameworks both within our project management structure, and in view of our Maximo project deliverables.

Interloc has won multiple awards by bringing industry-specific best practice standards to businesses.

Managing Maximo Security

Whether you are tasked with protecting customer services, corporate and customer data, or day-to-day operations, ensuring that employees in your organization have the appropriate access level is a large part of your overall company security strategy.

Interloc understands this and helps Maximo system administrators set up appropriate security groups, application and data restrictions and all related options so users have access only to the data they need.
