Cohesive Solutions to present at TRIMAX 2017 on importance of KPIs


Anthony Honaker, VP of product strategy and development at Cohesive Solutions, is slated to speak at this year’s TRIMAX 2017 conference on November 30th. Hosted by IBM, TRIMAX is an annual TRIRIGA and Maximo Enterprise Asset Management user group conference. Throughout the conference, clients, business partners, and IBM representatives share their knowledge, use cases, and innovative thoughts around the products and associated business processes.

“What makes a great learning experience for our attendees is having solid content presented by leaders like Cohesive who have industry experience and first-hand knowledge of the challenges Maximo users face today,” said Tina Scott, IBM Business Development Manager and TRIMAX leader.

Honaker’s presentation – “Beyond Dashboards: Using Measures and KPIs to improve your processes and achieve business results” – walks through the health and management of the business processes that support the organization’s overall strategy. This presentation will discuss how organizations can focus on improving their operations, as well as the use of their business systems, and achieve real business results by looking beyond dashboards, and using KPIs to improve the business processes and achieve results.

How Umpqua Bank is transforming real-estate with IBM TRIRIGA & IoT


I’m Tony Bailey, Senior VP of Real Estate, Facilities, Design, Construction, TPO, Physical Security teams at Umpqua Bank… As a first time presenter at TRIMAX – the combined TRIRIGA and Maximo User Group conference – I am excited to be able to meet with other companies that are at various stages in their path towards transforming both their facilities and their employee experiences using IBM TRIRIGA and Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities…

As we continue to expand our business, we will also leverage this knowledge as we deploy the Capital Planning capabilities in TRIRIGA. The lease administration capabilities are helping to streamline operations around construction procurement. For example, we are working on deploying a new e-invoicing capability that will automate many of time-intensive processes that consumed a lot of valuable resource from our business…

At TRIMAX in November, I will be sharing more details about Umpqua Bank’s project road map and lessons learned. I will be speaking about how we are incorporating IoT technologies to support our “branch of the future” vision, discussing in depth our plans to develop a dynamic floor plan – complete with traffic sensors and asset management to optimize our model – in an effort to drive just-in-time maintenance to help control costs.

I hope you are attending TRIMAX this November and I look forward to meeting you there to continue sharing best practices about our facilities management strategy.

What is the IBM TRIRIGA Support best practice for SRs and PMRs?


IBM TRIRIGA Support works on addressing problems through a problem ticketing system where each issue is logged as an IBM Service Request (SR) or Problem Management Report (PMR).  We manage problems reported via this process.

IBM TRIRIGA Support provides a support landing page titled “IBM TRIRIGA Information and Support Resources” which has a lot of very helpful information. This page has a Support Resources Home section that provides numerous links to some great resources, including a link to our IBM Service Request system, where you can open a Service Request (SR). On the “IBM TRIRIGA Information and Support Resources” page, there are also IBM Support phone numbers.

Once an SR/PMR is opened, it can be tracked for updates via the SR tool.  You may also request an update at any time and this will notify the Support team to follow up with you as soon as possible.

For the most efficient IBM TRIRIGA support experience…

  • There should only be one problem per SR/PMR per customer environment. This helps to keep the focus on a particular issue…
  • SRs/PMRs also have the concept of “severity”. This is a ranking that is set by the customer to indicate the urgency and importance…
  • When opening your SR/PMR, try to be as complete as possible and provide as much of the critical information as possible…

[Admin: This post is related to the 07.14.15 post about collecting data to resolve PMRs, the 07.07.15 post about resolving PMRs as soon as possible, and the 04.26.17 about outlining the process for SRs, PMRs, and APARs.]
