Projetech is entitled to thousands of Maximo licenses, and we are responsible for hundreds of Maximo instances in our cloud. Out of necessity, we have had to develop the expertise, and our own proprietary tooling to be able to manage license compliance. Also, we know that license compliance is fluid, (specific license types come to end of support, trade-ups occur, security groups change, etc.), so it isn’t a one & done task.
