Infosys EAM Team at Pulse 2011 - Annual Maximo User Conference

Next week, starting Feb 28th till March  2nd, I'll be at Las Vegas attending Pulse 2011 conference. Pulse has been the stage over the last few years where IBM has propounded the use of Maximo as THE one solution for all asset management blues, regardless of asset categories (MRO/facilities/IT), industry vertical you may belong to or modular footprint (work management vs inventory management vs procurement, for eg). We are a Gold sponsor this year and you can meet me and my colleagues at booth # 305. We have a host of activities lined up :

On Monday afternoon, I will be hosting a session on Smarter Asset Management in the Energy and Utility Industry at Expo Theatre 1. My talk will focus on an innovative approach using adoption of best practices, benchmarking, process standardization and smart tools and templates to achieve true "enterprise-wide" asset management capability via consolidation and upgrade to the latest Maximo versions.

Later in the evening from 7pm-9pm, Infosys is one of the sponsors at the  "GOMAXIMO" reception for Oil & Gas users of Maximo held at Room 118 - MGM Conference Center - Level 1. We look forward to share our Maximo success stories with large Oil & Gas companies with the estimated100 people, representing about 40-50 companies from upstream (40%), midstream (30%) and downstream (30%).

On Tuesday evening, our Utilities customer, Arizona Public Service (APS) will speak about the value of having implemented Maximo as an enterprise-wide asset management system. APS will share their experiences with IBMs Utility focused Maximo solution, which has enabled them instill proactive, planned and deliberate processes to promote accountability, responsibility and compliance. APS will also share how standardization and automation of Work and Asset Management processes/resources helped them create a framework to improve and measure operational performance.

In addition, we will be attending the Rail Road Summit customer forum on Saturday, Feb 26th followed by the Maximo Utilities Work Group on Feb 27th afternoon to network and build introductions with Maximo users.

If you're planning to attend Pulse, we do look forward to meeting you at our customer and expo theatre session! Don't forget to stop by our booth # 305 to understand our capabilities and success stories in Maximo, and interact with industry and Maximo experts. And if you are the lucky one, you could WIN the iPAD drawing, so that's an added incentive.

Also as the build up to our presence at the event, I have been doing a host of media  meetings with reporters  from Supply Chain Matters, InformationWeek, Connected Planet,etc.. to evangelize our experiential thought leadership on the importance of asset modernization and consolidation, after sales services, Green EAM and IBM Maximo partnership and will continue to lead multiple interactions with reporters and industry analysts from Gartner & Forrester.

I will share my first impressions  LIVE during the event based on any key announcements, general sessions and meetings with customers and IBM senior executives
