Why Maintenance Systems Fail?

Computerised Maintenance Management Software (CMMS) is a relatively mature product category.
CMMS has existed for nearly 60 years and while there have been innovations along the way, the core functionality offered is relatively common across all vendors.
Products evolve and the agreed and accepted workflows become the norm. Usability issues are addressed with customer feedback while functionality is added to resolve business challenges.
