Trivalo has already reviewed new and extended functionality prepared by IBM and here are some conclusions:

 

- New fresh look and feel as a result of applying a totally new skin, fonts and icons to Maximo, now more consistent with Work Centers and being more responsive and adjustable to device screen size – i.e. text is larger when there is more space

- Personal Data Management (GDPR) utility is now supported by Maximo, with ability to remove personal information from people records. This can be very useful and needed to comply with GDPR and secure that all records to an individual are removed.
