“Best blog a TRIRIGA developer can get. Check it out!” ~Mani Sanjeevi 01.12.15
Last week, December 5th, 2019 was the 5th anniversary of TRIRIGAFEEDIA. Another impressive milestone! Where have I been? Well, let’s just say that 2018 and 2019 have been very busy years. And I have no doubt that 2020 will be just as interesting, if not more so. Speaking of which, you might’ve noticed by now that IBM developerWorks is showing an important banner at the top of its wiki pages:
“The developerWorks Connections platform will be sunset on December 31, 2019. On January 1, 2020, this wiki will no longer be available.”
However, I’ve also learned that our specific wiki will remain frozen in read-only mode until the end of January 2020 before disappearing. Despite the challenges, the TRIRIGA team has been busily preparing a new wiki platform alternative. While the initial wiki pages may be populated as soon as January 2020, more and more batches will steadily follow, and the final pages may appear several months later.
So if you have a favorite wiki page that you might need during our migration process, I encourage you to print them to PDF for safekeeping. In any case, I’m excited about what I’ve seen of the cool new wiki platform so far. Stay tuned! Thanks again for reading, following, and feeding TRIRIGAFEEDIA. I appreciate it!
Interestingly, one day after I posted this entry, IBM updated their wiki banner:
“The developerWorks Connections platform will be sunset on January 2, 2020. This wiki will no longer be available unless an extension has been requested.”
Unfortunately, IBM didn’t approve the direction of our new wiki alternative. So we’ll discuss our next steps in January 2020. Meanwhile, I’ve learned that our current wiki will remain frozen in read-only mode until the end of March 2020. Stay tuned!

How does the University of California plan to manage their property assets across 10 campuses? By implementing an impressive new program called ICAMP – the Integrated Capital Asset Management Program. We caught up with Rich Powers, of the University of California Office of the President (UCOP) to find out how ICAMP enables visibility and integration across campus systems, and promotes efficient asset lifecycle management, too…
Defining the key elements of ICAMP
The ICAMP solution contains three solutions, all of which come together to support better decision-making:
UCOP chose the TRIRIGA platform to bring together all of their asset data into one integrated system. TRIRIGA lets you create a building inventory and location hierarchy. It has the capabilities required to manage those buildings throughout their lifecycle. Crucially, it supports facility condition assessment, or FCA. This is how they access every building component, from floor to ceiling, for health and performance. By using TRIRIGA, Rich’s team can overlay their building inventory with the FCA data to see which assets are most at risk, or in need of maintenance.
By combining this information with industry data from RSMeans, the team is able to estimate potential repair costs, then kick off opportunities from within TRIRIGA. UCOP also built a mobile FCA application with FieldFLEX Mobile that makes TRIRIGA available to technicians in the field. This carries the advantage of a streamlined inspection and assessment process. It allows architectural, electrical, and mechanical inspectors to look at their respective inventory elements and access asset data with ease. The application supports storing floor plans, uploading photos and videos, geo-tagging buildings and assets, and cross-referencing lifecycle data to help inspectors make better real-time assessments across the portfolio…
Today, August 19, 2018, TRIRIGAFEEDIA reached 200,000 hits since its birth on December 5, 2014. Impressive milestone! To celebrate, let’s examine the numbers. As of today, TRIRIGAFEEDIA earned 200,002 views from 64,501 visitors across 2,496 posts plus 114 pages. Although this top 20 represents only 0.77% of the total posts plus pages, it represents 7% (13,941) of the total hits or views. That’s 9x the average rate. Pretty interesting.

On July 31, 2018, industrial technology solutions giant Fortive announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Accruent, a real estate and facilities management software provider, from private equity firm Genstar Capital. Fortive will pay $2 billion in cash and expects Accruent to generate revenues of $270 million in 2018. This will come from its suite of software products used by Accruent’s 10,000 customers. Upon completion of the acquisition, Accruent will become part of Fortive’s portfolio of Field Services solutions alongside other brands such as Fluke, Gordian (RSMeans), and Industrial Scientific. Verdantix finds this is the biggest deal to date in the $4.9 billion market for real estate and building management software, which we define further in our recent report…
What does the deal mean for the broader real estate and building management software market? The deal shows the market is consolidating at a rapid rate. The largest real estate software vendors MRI, RealPage and Yardi have been locked in an arms race of acquisitions to further bolster their scale. Meanwhile, IWMS vendor Planon has pursued targeted acquisitions to support international expansion. This latest deal also highlights the emerging push by software vendors to make greater linkages between software used during the construction and operational phases of buildings. Witness Elecosoft, a construction software provider, acquiring Shire Systems, a CMMS vendor, to offer the construction firms and property investors it engages with a maintenance management solution…
We want to integrate IBM TRIRIGA with FileNet using CMIS 1.1, but we need to know what is all of the standard metadata that TRIRIGA sends to FileNet. For example, the file name, date creation, date modification, document type, document size, TRIRIGA user owner, etc. And if it is possible to send custom metadata when creating new custom fields in the Document business object? How can we do it?
The following properties are sent as part of the integration: Document Name, Document Type, Document Path. The Owner is going to be the CMIS username as defined in the TRIRIGAWEB.properties. Further custom metadata is not supported. The purpose of the CMIS integration is to have the binary content not stored in the TRIRIGA database as BLOBs.

What we think of as the “traditional office” (clusters of cubicles in the center of a space, surrounded by private offices around the perimeter) is going away — about 70% of US offices have some type of “open office” design.
Companies are starting to go beyond just workplace space planning by investing in healthy building features and looking for ways to provide more choice and autonomy to their employees, but why? Are these strategies actually working, or are they just following trends? Is it worth it to redesign your office layout and make dramatic changes to how your employees work?
Let’s dig into some statistics that shed some light on how the workspace impacts the employee experience and what that might mean for your company:

How long can a password be in IBM TRIRIGA?
There is no maximum password length imposed by the out-of-the-box TRIRIGA system. The encrypted password length is 500 characters. However, that encrypted length translates to about 125 characters.
