Why can't I just use the Maximo Integration Framework (MIF)/OSLC for my mobile users instead of EZMaxMobile? If I use the MIF/OSLC, does it require the mobile user to be a registered Maximo user?
Yes you can, but aside from the technical limitations of using the MIF/OSLC for enterprise mobility, each mobile user must still be a registered Maximo user according to the IBM software license agreement. This includes IBM Maximo Anywhere or any other mobile solution that uses the MIF/OSLC to commit transactions to Maximo. Customers who are looking at Maximo Anywhere as a mobile option, have been told that they only need to buy a Maximo Anywhere license, but that is misleading because that statement means that a Maximo Express User license is already included in the cost of that Anywhere license.
