Busy UK Events Calendar!

As the year starts drawing to a close, we still have some great UK events to look forward to!

First up, BPD Zenith will be exhibiting and the Assets & Estates Management Conference with partner PowerPlan. The event is taking place on Tuesday, 20th November at the QEII Centre in Central London. We’ll be talking to public sector organisations about their operational and financial challenges. With an IBM Maximo-PowerPlan Asset Investment Optimization Suite integration, the sector can justify tough decisions based on actual operations, maintenance capital costs. Visit us at Stand 21.

Next up we’ll be attending the IAM Asset Management Conference 2018 on the 27-28th November at the Park Plaza Riverbank, London.  The key themes covered in this year’s programme will be Organisation, Continual Improvement, Fundamentals & Lifecycle, Data, Tools & Techniques and Performance Management Value. Having attended last year, we found this to be an excellent forum for the latest innovation in asset management, and a great opportunity to meet with industry peers.

Our final event is another stopover in London where BPD will be sponsoring the Maximo UK & Ireland User Group event. The meeting is on the 29th November at Avonmouth House, London. The committee have put together another great agenda and we’re busy preparing!

Our long-time client Premier Oil will be presenting on their Maximo 7.6 upgrade experiences. They will also be supporting one of the ‘table topics’ on upgrades.

Following the success in North America and at MaximoWorld 2018, we will be bringing MaxTECH – the Maximo Technical User Group – to this event! We will be running a one-hour technical interactive training session for Maximo Administrators, Developers and technical support staff. The technical training topic will be Build a Custom Application to Manage all Queries. You can read ahead to find out why we built this custom application and what you can expect to learn!

As a sponsor of the event, you will be able to come and visit BPD Zenith and partners during the breaks. We will be showcasing our strong partnerships with IBM, DataSplice and PowerPlan.

On a personal note, I’m excited to see if I’ll make it as far as November 29th when I’ll be 36 weeks pregnant!
