IBM Maximo Development Partner Board
HD Spatial participates on the IBM Development Partners group for Maximo Spatial and Utilities. This group is a liaison between IBM product managers, developers, and select utility end users. Meetings are held 3-4 times per year to discuss upcoming product functionality and consider new directions and capabilities for the product.
The group serves as a sounding board to discuss common Asset Management and GIS problems faced by utilities. We then brainstorm ways Maximo Spatial could solve those issues.
HD Spatial has presented in this forum on the issue of modeling linear asset splits (water/gas mains, conductors, service lines, etc.) while maintaining accounting of asset work history. We also frequently participate in the lively discussions on field experience and product capabilities.
