The Cohesive Companies, a wholly-owned but independently operated digital integrator business unit of Bentley Systems, Incorporated, announced its acquisition of SRO Solutions to extend its capabilities for marine and industrial infrastructure. Established in 2004, SRO introduced IBM’s Maximo to the maritime environment, managing projects across all seven continents for an extensive list of blue-chip owner-operators of assets on- and off-shore. SRO, a Gold Accredited IBM Business Partner, provides unique Maximo replication and zero downtime upgrade solutions.
Headquartered in Manchester, UK, SRO’s engineers, consultants, and project managers wield extensive experience in delivering Maximo solutions across a wide range of sectors, led by maritime and oil and gas. Products include SDU (SRO Data Utility), which eliminates downtime and provides upgrade and migration processes that permit businesses to keep running while software (for example, large Maximo instances) are being updated; and SDR (SRO Data Replication), which assures data synchronization across remote geographies and intermittent connections.
