Can anyone shed some light around how the licencing works with Esri ? does every user in MAS requires an equivalent entitlement in Esri in order to use the Map Feature in MAS or Maximo Mobile ? or do we just need one entitlement to connect MAS with Esri ?
I would highly appreciate any enlightenment around this topic please. Thanks.
@Karun Das This is an interesting question. I have never thought about whether additional ESRI licenses are required when Maximo Spatial is installed. I have never been exposed to that on the Maximo implementation side over the past many years.
There is/was additional separately licensed seats for Maximo Spatial in 18.104.22.168 from IBM, and that was an Add-on. In MAS 8.x it is simply an additional number of app points consumed at install to enable the Maximo Spatial capabilities. I am not aware of any additional licenses needed to pay to ESRI. @Steven Shull or @Joao Souto may have a better answer.
Maximo Spatial works using ArcGIS REST Services (MapServer and FeatureServer) generated by ArcGIS Server/PortalEnterprise. There is no user license required in Spatial (Spatial 7.6.1.x or MAS 8.x). As many users as can be handled by your ArcGIS server (memory, CPU, etc.) can login in and use the Maximo Spatial Map Tab.ERSI licenses ArcGIS Server/Portal/Enterprise based on your server capacity. The number of CPUs on your server determines the cost of the server software. You must determine the number of users you expect to be using ArcGIS and size the number of cpus and memory you will need on the server to accomodate your ArcGIS users and Maximo Spatial users. ESRI has guidelines/spreadsheets to help you determin your server requirements.
@Jim Saunders you ol' dinosaur! I thought you hung up them spurs! Glad to hear from you! Hope all is well with you.
@Karun Das - Jim has a great deal of expertise in this area. You can rely on what he says here.
Thanks very much indeed for your clarification, I really appreciate it.
