As some of you may know, IBM is no longer supporting Actuate as of October 2010, so if you are on Maximo 6.2.3 or below and you upgrade to 6.2.7, you will lose the ability to run Actuate reports. Well, you won’t lose complete functionality but you will lose a lot of features as IBM no longer supports Actuate media.
You may experience functional reporting issues after applying the Maximo 6.2.7 fix pack.
For example, if you are on older fix pack such as 6.0, 6.1, 6.2.1, 6.2.2, or 6.2.3, and you apply the 6.2.7 fix pack you may lose Actuate reporting functionality. The affected functionality could be the ability to Direct Print reports from an application, along with other features.
The is due to the removal of Actuate code in Maximo 6.2 product updates, such as 6.2.7. Additional information on this issue can be found here:
Also note that 6.2 product fix packs are no longer cumulative for reporting defects.
Therefore, we recommend that you carefully review the 6.2.7 fix pack documentation relative to reporting fixes and evaluate the impact to your business prior to applying 6.2.7 or subsequent 6.2 fix packs.
Withdrawal of updates of Actuate Reporting for Maximo products
So basically what they are saying is, don’t upgrade to Maximo 6.2.7 if you are using Actuate.
