Infotech Lead Australia: Convergence Team, a professional services company that delivers Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) solutions, has deployed the IBM Maximo solution for Glow Energy Public Company’s Glow Group.
IBM Maximo Asset Management solution allows Glow Group to share and enforce best practices, inventory, resources and personnel to optimize the performance of their assets and maximize their return on investment.
The IBM Maximo upgrade enabled Glow Group to consolidate business practices across their numerous power plants and fully integrate the solution with Oracle Financials. It allowed the company to design, develop, and maintain a complete budgeting and tracking solution to improve overall enterprise efficiency.
As the program was a huge undertaking to manage, it was spilt into several phases like high-level requirements gathering and solution mapping, implementation of the global design for the group and implementation of additional requirements specific to business areas.
The two-year program of work for Phase I and II went live in February. Phase III will be implemented after a few minor enhancements are added.
Antoine Giraud, IBM Maximo practice principle at Convergence Team, said: “For more than five years, our organizations have worked side-by-side to deploy Glow’s EAM roadmap for growth and efficiency.”
Michael Reiff, SVP, Financial Controller at Glow, said, “IBM Maximo has been an integral part of our company and its operations for many years. When considering this upgrade and improvement project, we first analyzed impact to our ongoing business and sought a partner that understood this significance.” He said that the Convergence Team was the obvious selection because of their focus on the EAM space, their professionalism and the positive experience of working with them in the past.
