For years, Maximize has been the global event dedicated to helping industrial organizations understand how to drive digital transformation in field service delivery. The event orginated as an exclusive field service event hosted by ServiceMax prior to GE Digital’s acquisition of the company in late 2016. For this year’s conference, we’re excited to announce that we’re now expanding the event to showcase our unified portfolio of digital industrial applications, including a Predix Asset Performance Management (Predix APM) track at the Boston event on May 21st and 22nd.

As always, the field service community that ServiceMax has cultivated will be in attendance, but this year’s Boston event will include heritage Smart Signal, Meridium, and Predix APM users. We are bringing together service organizations, manufacturers, and equipment operators along with reliability, maintenance, integrity, and operations managers and engineers all in one place. Attendees will have the opportunity to discover GE Digital’s product and technology road maps, hear insights from leading visionaries, participate in interactive and in-depth discussions, and experience the latest technology innovations through hands-on demos.

Why attend?

By connecting the power of our asset performance management (APM) solution with our field service management (FSM) solution, attendees will be able to define the outcomes that matter most to their organization and create an asset-centric strategy to achieve those outcomes. By attending, you’ll discover new ideas and initiatives to maximize your investment in Predix ServiceMax and ensure that your field services are a competitive differentiator. You’ll also learn how to leverage Predix APM to drive outcomes like improved safety, optimized maintenance costs, increased production, and minimized risks. 

What to expect

Maximize 2018 will highlight how to drive the future of digital transformation for industrial organizations. Key themes at this year’s event include:

  • Explore APM and FSM as critical components for success in today’s competitive landscape
  • Understand the outcomes and metrics that should matter to your business, both at the asset level and in the field
  • Discuss the value of developing asset-centric service strategies
  • Learn more about GE Digital’s vision and strategy for providing end-to-end value through digital transformation
