TRIRIGA remixed? With Bluemix and IoT? How? Well, let’s figure it out together. If you haven’t heard, probably the biggest IoT news in the last few weeks was the IBM announcement that it “will invest $3 billion over the next four years to establish a new Internet of Things (IoT) unit, and that it is building a cloud-based open platform designed to help clients and ecosystem partners build IoT solutions.”
What does “cloud-based open platform” remind me of? You guessed it: Bluemix. In fact, the news named a future offering called the IBM Bluemix IoT Zone where developers could “enrich existing business applications – such as enterprise asset management, facilities management, and software engineering design tools”. What is our “facilities management” application? You guessed it: TRIRIGA.
While it might be more direct to share my impressions from within our new IoT division, it might be more fun to show how a passing but perceptive observer outside IBM might figure out where TRIRIGA fits into the mix. After all, both perspectives might turn out to be similar. I might even learn more about what’s going on!
