Back in March 2015, Amandeep Gill, Vice President at Tango Management Consulting (TMC), blogged about his knowledge-building experience at IBM InterConnect 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada. In “Building Connections at IBM InterConnect“, he wrote:
IBM TRIRIGA also shared their product roadmap and we learned what we can expect to see in the coming year. Of particular interest is TRIRIGA Shift, which will change the look and the tools available in the solution to reflect a more modern web-based platform. The first iteration of Shift will be out in Q4 of this year. Stay tuned for future blog posts that take a deeper dive in some of these technology innovations.
But as Q4 approaches, what are these “technology innovations”? Are they based on something like the jQuery 1.x Library? Or the Dojo Toolkit 1.10? Or the Polymer 1.0 Library? Some combination? Or something entirely new?
Later in May 2015, Jay Manaloto, Information Developer at IBM TRIRIGA, explored the Polymer approach, its responsive design, and especially its possible impact on the delivery of future IBM TRIRIGA documentation. However, he didn’t describe any connection to “TRIRIGA Shift”. In “Pouring Polymer onto TRIRIGA docs“, he wrote:
After being exposed to my first Polymer demo, I began to dive deeper into the Polymer approach, including Google presentations by Matt McNulty, Eric Bidelman, and Rob Dodson (my favorite video). I’m now convinced that there’s no reason why IBM TRIRIGA can’t achieve “a tight integration between the application and documentation” that’s even more natural and powerful than IBM Bluemix Docs… When will we get to see a Polymer-flavored IBM TRIRIGA application with integrated documentation? Well, that’s difficult to say. But it’s nice to dream of the possibilities.
With all of these names being tossed around — Shift, jQuery, Dojo, Polymer — where does the true TRIRIGA path lie? Will the TRIMAX 2015 user group conference reveal another roadmap in October? Until then, feel free to visit the effect-based jQuery 1.x Library, the widget-based Dojo Toolkit 1.10, and the element-based Polymer 1.0 Library for a taste of the innovative possibilities.

[Admin: This post appeared first on TRIRIGAFEEDIA. This post is related to the 12.11.15 post about the UX Framework. “Shift” was renamed “UX Framework” on the platform side, while “Perceptive” refers to TRIRIGA-built UX apps on the application side.]
@tririgafeedia great article! Just a heads up: it’s no longer called “Shift”! At Sales Academy we were told that the name was changing! 😃
