    Hello.

    Is there anyone out there who has made the journey and upgraded from Maximo 7.6 to MAS 8?

    We wish to get in touch with someone who has done that upgrade.

    Thanks in regards.

    We did one in the IBM Lab, as part of the four months enablement. I have made arround 600 pages of notes. To get the sense of what it entails. I suggest excellent webinar available form IBM it is just an hour long:

    Hi Daniel, we have done 3 migrations so far for 3 different customers, in different industries and also including subsets of customizations. Before deploying the real deal on a production environment we always build or own development / PoC environment to test the migration (MAS8 setup is not a real big deal, however some MAS8 combinations of different industry solutions and /or add-ons can not being combined (e.g. Maximo IT is incompatible with MAS8 Manage HSE). Knowing this and if that is not the case, than a migration can be done without any major challenge.  Keep in mind that if you want to migrate a database from one to another (e.g. Oracle to DB2), than the advise is to do this already in your MX76xx environment before you are migrating to MAS8. Although it is seems possible with the right tools, it is not yet proven technology.

    Regards

    We are trying our hand to upgrade from Maximo 7.6 to MAS8 using Azure.

    Kindly let me know how to manage the authorization and authentication aspect.

    Also, if there are any documents for testing/test scripts after the upgrade is done, please share, it would be great help to us.

    Regards,

    Hi Aparna,

    My team had setup SAML authentication using Azure Entra. As of documentation for setting up the above is available online. 
    Regarding Test Scripts, since we are an IBM Consultancy house we develop test scripts for each of our Clients as per their processes and setup. So there is no generic test scripts that we have made against the OOB Maximo. We also invest on building automation test script using tools like Selenium to ensure proper regression testing with every mock cutover since some of our Clients have extremely large and customized implementation with over 10,000 users on the system.
