Executive Summary

The market for maintenance management software is being disrupted by a raft of new entrants and new technology applications that are enabling much smarter approaches to maintenance, such as more optimized schedules and predictive maintenance. Over the past two years, a flurry of energy management software, integrated workplace management system (IWMS) and enterprise asset management vendors have deepened their maintenance capabilities, extending into a market that has traditionally dominated by computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) specialists. Verdantix finds that CMMS specialists must respond quickly to protect their home market or they risk being pushed to the edges as an entry-level solution. The report outlines three critical questions market participants should ask themselves to evaluate current potential strategies for the maintenance management software market.
