Introduction I recently ran into an integration where the requirements led me to developing a design where an invocation channel was the best route to synchronously accessing an external financial Mitchell Humphrey web service. The requirements included:
I recently needed to diagnose out of memory problems with Maximo. There is some information in the Maximo logs that can help. Maximo can display mbo counts and free memory information. Maximo will also log the number of active users and when crons execute.
Web services have made a lot of things easier, and a lot of things better. They make it possible to integrate other applications with IBM Maximo without the hassle of providing, and keeping up to date, a jar file of business objects to use with RMI. Maximo also makes creating web services very easy. From the Integration -> Web Services Library application, it is possible to create web services from an Object Structure, an Enterprise Service, or from a Service Class.
If you have limited network coverage, you know that offline mobility for Maximo matters. Your network goes down and you lose work, can’t access documents or work orders, and data is not transmitted back to Maximo.
This week’s blog post comes from Brad Knowles, Interloc’s Vice President of Canadian Operations. Brad has more than 20 year’s experience working with Asset Management software. Brad spends a large percentage of his time in Calgary where he focuses on the Oil & Gas sector, working with clients such as Cenovus, Connacher Oil, Legacy Oil, Encana, and Athabasca Oil.
Ahh IBM Maximo... we love it because it does so much.....but that incredible flexibility and configurability could become a challenge and sometimes the need for quick Maximo support arises.
