License Circumvention
Licensee will not attempt to aggregate users or otherwise circumvent IBM's licensing restrictions via technical means, including without limitation the use of any interface between the Program and other software that performs functionality substantially similar to that contained in any IBM program then offered by IBM when Licensee acquires the Program.

 

Security Application
All users of the Program must be listed in the security application of Maximo Asset Management and all users so listed must be entitled to use the Program. Users’ access to the Program must be defined in accordance with the entitlement granted and parameters defined in the security application by the type of user, and be configured accordingly within the profile definition of the users Security Group(s).

Add-on functionality, such as Maximo Industry Solutions and/or Add-on programs (Calibration, Spatial, etc.) are configured in the security application to allow access up to the specific number of users entitled pursuant to Licensee’s Proof of Entitlement. Any technical mechanism used including 3rd party mobile solutions that accesses, uses, or manipulates data in any manner outside of the Program’s user interface requires a Maximo entitlement.

For users who are performing functions which do not require specific entitlement, a single user identification can be utilized.

 

Licensee's Organization

The Program is for use within Licensee's organization only and may not be resold, rented, leased, or transferred to third parties (without limiting the generality of the foregoing, a third party expressly includes any divested entity or any entity that does not control (by owning greater than 50% of the voting shares), is not controlled by or is not under common control with Licensee). Any attempt to do so in violation of these provisions is void.

 

Limited Use User Access

A Limited Use User may access applications that have been cloned from one of the applications contained in one of the three modules selected for the Limited Use Authorized User.

A Limited Use User may access custom applications whose capabilities are related to the other applications in the same module selected for the Limited Use Authorized User. If the custom application is unrelated to that module, it will be individually counted as one of the designated modules for that user.

Limited Use Users also have access granted by an Express user, as described in the Maximo Asset Management license information document.

 

Concurrent Users

Users accessing the system who are entitled as a Maximo Concurrent Use User are counted as any user that is logged into the system at the same time.   This allows a single license to be shared by multiple people, as long as the total number of users simultaneously logged in does not exceed the number of licenses.

Maximo measures concurrent usage by counting the number of users that were logged into the system every minute (based on login and logout information in the logintracking table) and reports on the peak usage over a 24 hour time period.  The default time out for a logged in user is after 30 minutes of inactivity and should not be set to any less than 10 minutes for a concurrent user.   

 

General Charge Terms

Trade-Up License for Industry Solutions.

  • Trade-Up allows an existing Maximo Asset Management user to upgrade to a Maximo Industry Solution.
  • Trade-Up pricing applies to a given customer who previously purchased Maximo Asset Management and is interested in making a subsequent decision to purchase a Maximo Industry Solution.

Add-On License for Industry Solutions

  • An Add-On License entitles a Maximo User who is licensed for one Maximo Industry Solution to be licensed for another Maximo Industry Solution.
  • The pricing applies to a User who is using more than one Maximo Industry Solution, purchased at the same time or at a later date.

User Entitlement for Mobile Solutions

  • Users requiring mobile capabilities in addition to their current existing Maximo license  may purchase the "Add-On" license for Maximo Anywhere.
  • Users that only require access to Maximo via Maximo Anywhere applications only require that they hold a Maximo Anywhere user license. Those who also require desktop access to Maximo will require a Anywhere license as well as the Maximo license appropriate for their desktop access to Maximo.

 

Use of third party mobile applications

When accessing Maximo through a third party mobile application, each user is required to hold a underlying Maximo license that would support the same capabilities as provided through the 3rd party application.  For example;

  • If the mobile application allows a technician to view and enter data and complete their assigned work, that requires an express license. 
  • If the mobile application provides the access to contracts, purchases orders, and inventory (3 Maximo modules) a Limited license is required.
  • If the license is shared, it must be the appropriate concurrent use license.

The following usage restriction applies to the IBM Maximo Anywhere mobile product only. 

The Maximo Anywhere product contains the IBM Worklight Consumer Edition or IBM MobileFirst Platform Foundation - Consumer.  As such, Maximo Anywhere customers may use the Worklight/MobileFirst product components for the purpose of configuring and running the Maximo Anywhere mobile applications. In addition, the following restrictions apply:

Customers may not create new Maximo Anywhere applications for use from within or external to Maximo without first acquiring the required MobileFirst entitlements.

Customers may not alter the Maximo Anywhere mobile application such that they exchange data with any data source other than Maximo.   Exchanging data directly from the Mobile App and another data source outside Maximo or Tririga is excluded.

Customers may use data that is accessible through real-time Web services deployed through the Maximo Enterprise Adapters as long as the use of that data does not alter the functionality of the delivered App.  Exchanging data in the App for the purpose of changing or increasing the business intent of the delivered Anywhere App is excluded.

Customers may perform configuration changes of the provided Maximo Anywhere applications or may “clone” a provided Maximo Anywhere application such that the original business intent is not changed.

You may not make changes other than those specified in the IBM Maximo Anywhere documentation (e.g. "Customizing Maximo Anywhere mobile apps").
