## Maximo Application Suite Migration and Modernization with Red Hat OpenShift on Azure

Organizations that have been using IBM Maximo for enterprise asset management will soon have to migrate to the next generation IBM Maximo Application Suite (MAS) as Maximo 7.x approaches its end of life. The MAS offers a better user experience, faster integration, robust AI analytics, and a broad range of cloud deployment options. To aid customers in this transition, IBM, Microsoft, and Red Hat have teamed up to provide a validated architecture for running MAS on Azure Red Hat OpenShift, a fully managed and highly available OpenShift service jointly operated by Microsoft and Red Hat.

### How to Run MAS on Azure

#### Option 1: MAS on self-managed Red Hat OpenShift through Marketplace
This involves setting up MAS on an OpenShift cluster, which runs on the Azure platform. The deployment process is simplified through the Azure Marketplace, providing pre-configured templates and scripts. This option offers ease of deployment and flexibility in infrastructure optimization, enabling organizations to quickly enhance their asset management practices with MAS.

#### Option 2a: MAS on self-managed Red Hat OpenShift through “do it yourself” option
Organizations using this option have complete control over the MAS deployment process, allowing for customization to align with specific requirements. While it provides unparalleled control, it requires skilled resources and ongoing support and maintenance responsibilities.

#### Option 2b: MAS deployment on Azure Red Hat OpenShift managed by Microsoft Azure
This option offers a middle ground between the previous two, providing a straightforward setup with less effort compared to the “do it yourself” approach, while still offering similar levels of control over OpenShift and MAS. The managed experience through a PaaS offering supported by Microsoft and Red Hat simplifies the overall management of OpenShift.

Each MAS deployment option has its advantages and limitations and requires careful consideration of infrastructure, customization, and cost. By understanding these factors, organizations can choose the deployment option that best aligns with their business objectives.

For a detailed discussion on MAS deployment options on Azure, organizations can engage with IBM to make an informed decision and ensure a successful and efficient MAS deployment.
