“ By consolidating our distributed asset management systems into a private cloud, we benefit from reduced IT operational costs as well as increased security—which is especially important for our mobile Maximo applications. ”
Walfrido Goulart, Data center manager, Procempa
With 1.5 million citizens, Porto Alegre is the capital city of Brazil’s southernmost state, Rio Grande do Sul. For more than 30 years, the city has used IT innovation to drive continual improvements to public services. As part of this long-standing commitment, Porto Alegre’s municipal government founded its own IT company—Procempa—in 1977. Today, Procempa employs 500 people and hosts over 300 operational-management, asset-management and line-of-business applications for Porto Alegre’s local government.
Porto Alegre wanted to improve quality of life for citizens by keeping its growing population moving. To reduce road closures, the city needed to increase the efficiency of its maintenance processes.
The city implemented an asset management solution based on IBM® Maximo® software on Linux for System z®. Data on maintenance activities is displayed in near-real time on a digital map of the city.
Accelerates essential maintenance work, reducing road closures. Projected to achieve a 50 percent reduction in response times, and a 30 percent reduction in backlogs. Estimated to deliver a 60 percent reduction in TCO.
