We’ve just begun the first stage of a two year asset management implementation at Melbourne Water in partnership with Fujitsu Australia. It’s another project in which all three of our lines of business are engaged – EAM, Integration and Information Management. Alongside the asset management team, we'll have experts in infrastructure design, WebSphere solution architecture, information management and data migration.
All three Certus lines of business are involved in a complex project at Melbourne Water - EAM, Integration and Information Management.
Having supported Fujitsu in its successful bid, we are engaged in providing the Victorian utility with an asset management system. And alongside the asset management team, we'll have experts in infrastructure design, WebSphere solution architecture, information management and data migration. The first phase of what will be a two year project has just started.
A core asset management team is scoping and designing the solution, providing skills ranging from asset and work management best practices, Maximo design and implementation methodologies and sharing examples of how other customers have tackled some of the challenges faced by Melbourne Water.
Another consultant will be putting in place an infrastructure design and proposed solution for what most certainly will be a complex cluster set-up using IBM WebSphere.
A solution architect from the Certus Integration business will contribute senior level experience of best practices for integration design using SOA. The current high level design calls for integration with 6-9 external systems.
Helping develop a data migration strategy will be one of our senior Information Management consultants - Melbourne Water has a large number of legacy systems to be replaced by Maximo.
This first phase will run until the beginning of May. The implementation of Maximo will start mid-year when the Certus team is expected to increase in size.
Certus has previously collaborated with Fujitsu in other significant utilities projects including at Sydney Water in 2009/2010.
