The continuity of the day-to-day life of people worldwide may be under threat as essential aspects of the civil infrastructure, including bridges, tunnels, highways, and railways ages. So, there was a need for new solutions that could help the owners, operators, and engineers address infrastructure issues. To solve this, IBM has introduced enhancements to IBM Maximo for Civil Infrastructure to help prolong the lifespan of aging infrastructure.
The enhancements to IBM Maximo include its new ability to deploy on Red Hat OpenShift for hybrid cloud environments as well as AI and 3D model annotation tools. This will provide deep industry and task-specific insights to support the engineers.
"Maximo for Civil Infrastructure was developed with input from some of the largest operators of infrastructure in the world so that IBM's powerful technology across AI and IoT is carefully adapted to the unique needs of civil engineers," said Joe Berti, VP of AI Applications at IBM. "With these tools we believe civil engineers will be able to innovate and improve the methods for monitoring, maintaining and preserving important structures around the world."
IBM Maximo for Civil Infrastructure provides the new capabilities including, Maximo Application Suite licensing and Open Shift deployment, Defect Management, and improved 3D VisualizationAsset Loader Improvements, in addition to the core offerings available as part of the IBM Maximo Application Suite.
