Maximo Application Suite User Types

The Maximo Application Suite offers three distinct user types: Limited, Base, and Premium. Each user type has its own set of access privileges and consumes varying amounts of AppPoints.

Limited Users: Limited Users consume 5 AppPoints and enjoy access to 3 modules within Manage, Monitor, Mobile, and Assist functionalities.

Base Users: Base Users consume 10 AppPoints and have access to Manage, along with additional features such as Health, Scheduler, and Safety.

Premium Users: Premium Users consume 15 AppPoints and have access to Manage Industry solutions and the Predict module.

Furthermore, there is a specific user type called “Install,” which is utilized to support Adapters for Manage, such as ERP and Spatial. This user type is represented by a single AppPoint.

Administrators within the system are also considered users, with allocated app points to ensure continuous access. Base Administrators possess the authority to set up users regardless of the application’s tier level. The Manage administrator is designated as an Application Admin User.

Please note that the number of Limited Use User licenses must adhere to a ratio of 3 Authorized Limited Use User licenses to 1 Authorized Use User License of Maximo Asset Management or an Industry Solution.

Understanding AppPoints

With Maximo Application Suite, IBM has introduced a streamlined licensing model called AppPoints. AppPoints offer a simplified approach to licensing and usage by utilizing a credit-based “pool” system. They serve as the currency for managing application usage, runtime, and user access.

From the user’s perspective, AppPoint usage remains transparent. Users simply log in, select their desired application, and seamlessly work within it, without needing to be aware of the underlying AppPoints.

The pool of AppPoints granted by your license is shared across all instances of the Maximo Application Suite, based on the order of requests. Whether it’s reserved or concurrent user logins from multiple instances, only one checkout of AppPoints occurs, given that the entitlement of the logged-in user remains the same.

Your Maximo Application Suite organization’s user access limit is determined by your contracted AppPoint entitlement. Monitoring your AppPoint usage allows you to periodically assess whether adjustments to your entitlement are necessary, ensuring that your license file remains up to date.

Benefits of AppPoints

Maximo Application Suite’s AppPoints licensing model offers enhanced flexibility compared to the legacy Maximo model of authorized, limited, and express users.

With AppPoints, you gain entitlement to access the entire suite of MAS modules while only paying for the specific applications you utilize.

This unique approach allows you to optimize costs by paying solely for the functionalities you require. As a result, customers can benefit from significant discounts on AppPoints, and MAS customers may discover that AppPoints offer even lower costs compared to traditional Maximo licenses.

AppPoints provide an additional layer of flexibility beyond traditional licensing models. They enable you to adjust your entitlement to align with your evolving needs. By monitoring your AppPoint usage, you can periodically evaluate whether your entitlement requires adjustment and easily update your license file accordingly.

Experience the benefits of flexibility, cost savings, and adaptability by transitioning your licensing to AppPoints. Contact us today to learn more about this process.
