What's new in Maximo Asset Management 7.5.0.3

Maximo Asset Management version 7.5.0.3 incorporates several new features, such as the ability to link Maximo Asset Management applications to external applications and the option to configure high availability for your environment. 7.5.0.3 also introduces email interaction, which enables a user to change the status of an object or workflow assignment by email. In addition to these enhancements, version 7.5.0.3 provides improved documentation in areas such as installation and automation scripting.

Installing
You can now access the installation information for the most common middleware combinations in a convenient PDF document. Installation guides are available for three sample middleware groupings. Learn more...

Configuring
You can configure the components of your environment to provide high availability of your system and data. By implementing high availability for your environment, hardware and software services can be restored when a failure occurs, often in less than a minute. Learn more...
With email interaction, a user who does not have access to a desktop computer can change the status of an object or workflow assignment. The email interaction speeds up the response and action times for users who are working off site. Learn more...
All system properties are now available with a description and the default information in the Information Center. The system properties are grouped in categories such as OSLC (Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration), REST API, and security. You can view all related properties together in one location. Learn more...
When you need to create an object, you might duplicate an existing object to reduce the time that is required to complete this task. You can now exclude user-defined attributes that should not be copied to the new object.
Detailed end-to-end instructions are available for creating and deploying clusters. Clusters are an advanced configuration option. Clusters group similar functions on two or more Java virtual machines (JVMs) to process a single function, such as scheduled cron tasks. Learn more...
New instructions are provided for optimizing system performance. You can learn how to find the optimal heap setting in WebSphere® Application Server and how to configure performance-related settings in DB2®. You can also learn database optimization methods that you can apply to any database, including managing indexes, customizing queries, and setting sequence caches. Learn more...
You can set a system property to allow status inheritance for work items that are under process flow control. You can now control whether status inheritance applies when process flow control is switched on. Learn more...

Integrating with external applications
Maximo Asset Management applications and some external applications can link and share data by using OSLC integration. You use the new OSLC Providers application to integrate a Maximo Asset Management application, such as Service Requests, with an external provider application, such as Rational Team Concert™. Learn more...
A new logger is available for using new OSLC capabilities. The integration provides logging for the design process, when an OSLC interaction is created, and for the execution process, when an OSLC interaction is executed by the user. With the OSLC logger, you can identify any OSLC-based processing errors that are reported.

Work and asset management
You can create conditions and apply them to job plans to specify that work can begin only when certain conditions are satisfied. Job plan conditions automate the creation of new work items on a work order and improve the flow of work in your organization. Learn more...
You can add the last memo from the most recent workflow assignment action to a communication template. This enhancement ensures that memos created for communication templates in a workflow process are immediately available to the user. Learn more...

Application configuration
You add the allowqualifiedrestriction property to the XML for an application to restrict the data that is returned from the database. Learn more...

User assistance
A new section of the information center provides information about the messages that you see while installing or using the product. These messages might appear in the user interface or log files and are categorized by prefix. You can use the search function in the information center to find the messages. Learn more...

Automation scripting
The automation script content in the information center includes new information about variables and data retrieval. A detailed end-to-end example of the implementation of an automation script with an action launch point is also provided. The example shows how to use an automation script to automate assigning service requests to service groups. Learn more...

Reporting
Version 7.5.0.3 includes new versions of the business intelligence and reporting tool (BIRT) and Cognos Reporting. The new versions are BIRT 3.7.1 and Cognos 10.1.1. Learn more...

Logging
The logging content in the information center includes new information about log correlation and escalation logs. Other new information includes automation script logging, integration framework logging, and cron task logging. Learn more...
