Deployment Options

Maximo On-Premise

Maximo On-Premise is excellent for companies that want their EAM solution managed within a single software platform. Typically companies that choose Maximo On-Premise hosting wish to keep their Maximo platform managed in-house and managed by their own IT department. One of the reasons companies select On-Premise for their Maximo deployment is to meet compliance regulations that require organizations to store their data locally. On-Premise deployment benefits include an easy transition for your legacy Maximo platform, in-house system monitoring and security, and centralized management of your Maximo platform.
