    using our SDU toolkit.SDU

    “Major upgrade with SDU ... it just

    happened” DP World

    The SDU is an ETL toolkit that helps IBM Maximo customers to reduce downtime during the Maximo upgrade and data migration processes.

    The SDU’s unique change capture capabilities allow you to synchronize changed data from one environment to another. Each environment may be on a different version, patch or internal change release level.

    The SDU can also be used to move data from production to non production environments.

    The SDU captures and synchronizes the data, so that environments can be kept in sync with a seamless cutover.



  • SDU usage examples SDU


    The SDU upgrade enables an organization to reduce the overall downtime of a major Maximo upgrade. It involves upgrading from one major Maximo version to another. Some examples include Maximo Industry Solutions and add-ons such as Maximo Mobile and Maximo Scheduler.

    Examples of completed upgrades:

    • Maximo 6.2.6 - Maximo

    • Maximo - Maximo

    • Maximo - Maximo

    • Maximo 4.0.1 - Maximo

    The SDU will migrate data changes from current production into the future production system which has been upgraded through the various levels required.

    The SDU migration functionality allows an organization to reduce downtime when migrating data from legacy systems or from existing Maximo configurations to another - it may also include an upgrade to a later version. It is similar to the upgrade scenario, however, no official IBM Maximo upgrade is performed as the organization may want to move away from the existing configuration or version into a separately configured Maximo environment.

    The SDU will first migrate all the non configuration data and continue to synchronize delta data changes from current production into the target production system.

    Typical migration scenarios include:

    • De-Customization

    • New Corporate Configuration Rules

    • Re-Implementation

    • Large Business Process Changes

    The SDU Production Outages facility allows significant downtime reduction or elimination for typical production outages. This scenario requires a temporary or permanent duplicate of the existing production system to function.

    The SDU will migrate data changes from current production into the target production system which has been re-configured with a new release or patched to a later minor level.

    Typical outages scenarios may include: • Maximo Table adjustments

    • New tables/columns

    • Extending fields

    • Dropping tables/columns

    • Workflow re-configuration

    • Screen changes

    • Integration adjustments

    • New interfaces

    • Modification of existing interfaces

    • Rebuilding interface tables

    • Applying a FixPack or HotFix “The SDU

    made complicated data migration

    possible, and with minimal impact to end users.”


    The SDU Merge functionality allows an organization to merge multiple instances of Maximo together whilst reducing downtime impact – an upgrade may also be involved. In this scenario, the target database may have data written from multiple sources or may already have live users within the system.

    Examples: • Merging environments

    • Consolidating separated instances of

    Maximo to a corporate level configuration

    • Consolidating vendor instances of Maximo
