Verdantix: Accruent to be acquired by Fortive for whopping $2 billion


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…

Serraview: 8 Workplace statistics make you rethink space planning


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:

  • Innovative companies are 5 times more likely to have workplaces that prioritize individual and group workspace…
  • 69% of businesses that implemented healthy building features reported improvements in employee satisfaction and engagement…
  • People are 12% more likely to report being happy with their job when they have freedom and autonomy in their work environment…
  • 37% of job candidates will accept a job with a lower salary if the company offers appealing culture, workplace facilities and technology…
  • 42.5% of the global workforce will be mobile employees by 2022…
  • 85% of respondents in a CBRE survey expect to see increase in mobility in the workplace through activity-based workplaces…
  • 70% of employees age 16-44 say they want to be more mobile at work…
  • 30% of energy used in a commercial building is wasted

How do you import projects through IBM TRIRIGA integration?


Does anyone have experience in project integration (data transfer) from an external existing project through any IBM TRIRIGA integration module? Our templates and mapping have been identified, but the question is about reproducing the overall standard when a project is created. This seems hard. In order to have this project consistent in TRIRIGA, we think that we need to be consistent with the following:

  • Project and direct associations with business objects in perimeter
  • Associated purchase orders
  • Budget and their associated cost codes
  • Financial data and their associated computation

Any help and experience would be great, even if the answer is it’s too hard.

Without detailed knowledge on the user’s part, such as a fundamental knowledge of all of the application functionality, it would really be best to engage IBM Services to implement this integration. It’s not impossible, but it really would need a lot of care.
