On July 24, 2020, IBM Software released Feature Pack 220.127.116.11 for Maximo Asset Management. After upgrading to Maximo 18.104.22.168, the Informer Administration Maximo application will remain available, but Informer Developer will simply show a blank page. When this occurs, the system logs may include complaints about License errors and/or ClassNotFoundExceptions.
On August 13, 2020, Interloc Solutions released the Mobile Informer Server 5.8.6 Product Update. This update is recommended for all customers planning an upgrade to Maximo 22.214.171.124 now or in the future. Informer 5.8.6 works on all supported versions of Maximo, and a proactive upgrade of Informer during or in advance of a Maximo upgrade will prevent compatibility issues. Once the Informer upgrade is applied, no further action is necessary during Maximo upgrade.
Maximo Inspections have been available to the Maximo community since 126.96.36.199. That first release was pretty basic, with little or no real Maximo integration. Since then, three more feature packs have been released and IBM has improved on the function and capabilities each time. The Maximo Inspections work centres are now a powerful tool that can be easily implemented and managed. The only problem, and the main reason they are not more widely used, is that they are not available offline. At least, they weren’t. Keep reading to find out more about Maximo Inspections and how you can now take them offline with Mobile Informer.
On January 27, 2020, Interloc Solutions released the Mobile Informer 5.8 Product Update. The new 5.8 version of Mobile Informer makes partitioned Catalogs a first-class feature, providing significant backend performance improvements in environments delivering data strictly via clearly-defined partitions for offline usage. This is especially relevant for customers with separate, disjoint data sets who need that data available offline at all times. An example being assets spread across factories or inventory spread between storerooms at different sites.
