Are you a Maximo consultant in your hotel room or working late in the office and wondering where you’ll eat tonight? Have you been asked to get certified on Maximo Manage? Then, this podcast is for you.
Maximo Bite Size is a series of short episodes that will take you around the functional aspects of Maximo. In the first series of fourteen episodes, we will focus on Asset Management, and in the second and third series it will be Maintenance Planning and Service Management. The first 40 articles are already written and can be found on MaximoSecrets.com.
I’m Andrew Jeffery by the way, I am an IBM Champion, and I’ll be bringing my 25 years’ of experience of implementing Maximo in various industries to guide you through the knowledge you’ll need to undertake the functional certification, which I was involved in writing. I won’t be telling you the questions or answers, but I’ll make sure that the content is adequately covered.
There is a companion series on YouTube which will cover the same topics, they even have the same titles, but they are quite different and contain more business examples, and for those of you who are new to Maximo this might be a better starting point, they are complimentary to each other. Throughout, I’ll be revealing some lesser-known features, I call them secrets, so there will be something for everyone, in almost every episode or video. Head over to MaximoSecrets.com where you’ll find the transcripts which often contain links at the bottom of the page to other articles I’ve written on the subject in question. That is Maximo Secrets .com, all one word.
The music for the intro/outro in the podcasts is from a very talented group called Track Tribe and you can find them at TrackTribe.com. The tracks will be different for each series, track names are in brackets:
