This conference will enable Maximo Clients to gain the maximum value from enterprise infrastructure such as industrial equipment, facilities, transportation and IT assets and achieve business objectives with improved up time, availability and reliability.
The event will focus on IBM Maximo’s capabilities that maximize operational effectiveness, accelerate time to market, and enable new value creation across the entire product lifecycle.
eSolutions Maximo have put together an impressive agenda that addresses the many different and evolving needs of their customers.
Through networking opportunities and presentations, users will share experiences with their peers and Maximo professionals, gain an understanding on how they can optimize the performance of their assets, as well as increase their return on investment while achieving the operational excellence organizations continuously seek.
With eSolutions Maximo being the facilitator and catalyst for business success, Day 1 of the event will feature presentation topics of general business and operational interest. This will also include a discussion led by Keynote Speaker Dr. Jamil Mahuad, the ex-President of Ecuador.
Dr Mahuad holds a Masters in Public Administration from Harvard and was nominated for the NOBEL PRIZE in 1999. In addition, Pete Karns, Director of Product Management & Strategy at IBM will be discussing IBM Asset Management Strategy and Roadmap.
There will also be a high level presentation by Kristian Steenstrup, distinguished Analyst and Gartner Fellow. International and regional clients (Royal Boskalis Westminster & Dubai Airports) will discuss their Maximo implementations, and industry experts will advise on best practices.
Breakout sessions on Day 2 will focus on the following industries: Oil & Gas; Utilities; Government & Transportation; Facilities Maintenance; and IT. Day 3 will include training workshops around IT (Maximo Archiving/ SmartCloud Control Desk), Maintenance (RCM Predictive Modeling/ Asset Management Strategy Objectives/Maximo Scheduling/IWMS Systems Implementation), and Supply (Supply Chain Optimization).
Gartner’s latest report shows that “IBM Maximo holds the highest market share in Asset Management,” said Gaby Matar, Group Managing Partner of eSolutions Maximo.
“This is due to the fact that we understand and work on our customers’ business requirements. Technology is a business facilitator but at the end of the day, it is about the people and the business. Our consultative approach evaluates business needs and provides support every step of the way to ensure the success of the implementation and genuine ROI for our customers. Initiatives such as the Maximo Middle East User Group Conference 2013 are one of the many ways in which we support our customers by providing a platform for them to discuss best practices and network with other industry leaders,” he added.
The Maximo Middel East User Group Conference has garnered much industry support. Sponsors include: CiM Maintenance; MaxGrip; GISTEC/ESRI; DCODE; Data Capture Systems (DCS); The Middle East Facility Management Association (MEFMA); NJW Limited; and media partners Dubai Eye and Computer News Middle East (CNME).
Customers based in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, have turned to eSolutions Saudia to successfully implement Maximo 7.5 for the largest project in the history of traffic law enforcement worldwide – the ATVAM (Automated Traffic Violations Administering and Monitoring) project.
Additionally, following du Telecom’s expansion in the U.A.E, eSolutions Maximo successfully empowered their Facilities Management which comprises more than 30,000 real estate contracts of both commercial and technology sites.
According to a recent study by IDC, the Middle East’s Information and Communications Technology (ICT) spending is forecasted to increase by 10% in 2013 to reach $20,341bn. While IT demand in large Middle East organizations remains selective, vertical industries like Banking and Government will help to maintain a strong growth momentum in the IT industry.
In order to maximize the value of organizational assets and ROI from these IT investments, businesses will require a robust set of enterprise capabilities, designed to meet the demanding needs of asset-intensive organizations that need to keep their plant, fleet or facility at peak performance.
