Starboard Consulting: Rediscover the Benefits of IBM Maximo

Karen Buck, Executive Director
Managing hundreds, thousands, or even millions of smart, connected assets can grow to become an incredible challenge without adequate experience in the field of enterprise asset management (EAM). As a result, EAM systems have become a critical, must-have technology in today’s hypercompetitive marketplace. Combining asset management expertise with artificial intelligence (AI) and data analytics to operate high-value assets further improves performance, extends asset lifecycles, and reduces downtime and operational costs. At this juncture, Starboard Consulting—a Gold‐accredited, IBM Premier Business Partner and IBM Maximo reseller— provides best-in-class Maximo consulting services to help firms enhance their asset management systems.

Over the past 15 years, Starboard has focused on delivering the highest quality Maximo services to help clients improve their business. The company caters to clients from asset and capitalintensive industries such as utilities, municipalities, public works agencies, transportation organizations, and higher education institutions. As capitalintensive companies require frequent maintenance and repair of their assets, the company provides Maximo managed services. Starboard can manage the entire development life cycle—from project inception to post-implementation support—by working closely with internal and external development team members.

Backed by a highly efficient staff consisting of some of the best and the brightest in the industry, Starboard Consulting ensures each client’s success through IBM Maximo. A world-leading EAM solution, Maximo simplifies the tasks of purchasing, inventory management, and overseeing the service desk, all while streamlining operational workflows.

“At Starboard we do what matters. Every decision—from our founding 15 years ago until today—is to do what matters for our clients and that is achieving results that improve their business,” adds Karen Buck, the executive director of Starboard Consulting.

To best elucidate the company’s consulting competencies, the following case study of its engagement with a public power organization serves the purpose perfectly.
The client was in need of an IBM Maximo integration for their transportation module and reached out to Starboard Consulting. After carefully understanding their requirements, Starboard Consulting provided comprehensive Maximo consulting, IT support, and strategic advisory services. The company also recently facilitated a major upgrade to the Maximo Asset Management software, version 7.6, and expanded the solution’s footprint across the client’s organization. The successful results of this collaboration led to many more projects over the years, and the two organizations continue to enjoy a long-standing relationship today.

Starboard Consulting strongly believes in learning about a client organziation’s people before approaching any new Maximo strategies. With this core value driving the company, it employs the D4 methodology: discover, define, develop, and deliver. This mantra is institutionalized within Starboard Consulting to help achieve successful project outcomes. The process starts with identifying a client’s issues and the areas that require attention, then defining those issues, and ultimately developing solutions for clients.
