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:
- IBM TRIRIGA Cloud
- FieldFLEX Mobile.
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…

There’s an old metaphor originating from Plato that compares the soul to that of a chariot with a pair of winged horses. Chariots of the gods were equipped with two good horses, while us mere mortals were given one good horse and one bad, unruly horse, depicting the conflicts of the soul. Due to this imbalance, we would always face hardships. But those of us who could put that unruliness to use could potentially rise high enough to hang with the gods.
What does this have to do with IBM TRIRIGA and hanging out at TRIMAX this week? Not a whole lot, I just like to throw out fascinating metaphors. However, if you’re looking to power up your facilities “chariot” with the fiercest of good stallions, and corral the unruliness of unused data, you may want to read on.
The five fierce stallions of 2017
When it comes to fierce stallions, why have 2 when you can have 5? And when you’re talking about investments around TRIRIGA, the more the merrier. Here are the top 5 stallions driving the chariot of your facilities management efforts this year:
- 1. New lease accounting standards drive compliance domination…
- 2. Analytics help you understand the performance of your chariot…
- 3. Cloud isn’t just for mythical gods…
- 4. Mobility enables the business to soar from anywhere…
- 5. User experience (UX) drives Herculean engagement…

The most critical aspect of all production systems is being able to ensure high-availability in case of critical failures. The traditional approach was to operate a disaster recovery site and fail-over clusters. This requires 24×7 maintenance and monitoring activities and adds the significant costs for hardware, software, and human resources engaged. Due to this, many companies opt-out of having the high-availability for their EAM system.
Thankfully, there is a new option with database-as-a-service (DBaaS) offerings being provided by all major database vendors. Providing a high-availability system for 10,000 users can now be achieved by filling the single web form. You will then be provided with a database service that is available 24×7 and all maintenance, monitoring, and backup activities are automated in the background.
We tested DBaaS offerings from several vendors such as Amazon, Microsoft, and Oracle and found all of them being able to deliver on their promise. Although some products like IBM Maximo and IBM TRIRIGA are not officially certified for these platforms, we managed to successfully migrate several clients to a DBaaS database on Oracle and MS SQL Server…

I know that TRIRIGA SaaS comes with predefined ETL jobs, and one of them is energy log fact. I have some energy logs on some buildings. However, all of my attempts to run the ETL job for energy logs have failed. Is there any missing parameter for me to add to make this work? I did try adding triEnvEnergyItem as a BO name, but no luck.
The ETLs each require different inputs depending on the ETL. Since, in general, ETL processing is a background process and runs through the scheduler, you would need to look in the server.log to see what the ETL needs if you are running it directly from the ETL Job form. You would also need to make sure that you have a license that allows you to run the ETLs, which would be a license that grants privileges to “Technology Metrics”.

Watson Analytics is an intuitive, cloud-based analytics tool that will help TRIRIGA users explore their data for insights and display findings as dashboards and infographics for easy sharing. All without having to become a data scientist.
Watson Analytics guides data discovery and predictive analytics by using automatic visualizations and enables dashboard creation so that you can get insights and make informed decisions. Pairing Watson Analytics with data from TRIRIGA enables you to explore your integrated workplace management processes and obtain new insights on your day to day operations. The IBM Watson Analytics service will allow you to discover patterns and meanings in your data.
The TRIRIGA Connector for Watson Analytics gives you the ability to export your TRIRIGA data into Watson Analytics. With Watson Analytics, you can tune data, discover insights to help solve your business problems, and display your findings…
[Admin: As of 2020, IBM Watson Analytics is no longer supported. It was replaced by IBM Cognos Analytics. To see other related posts, use the Watson tag or Analytics tag.]
I have a TRIRIGA SaaS client, and administrators of my client have several questions about TRIRIGA SaaS services:
- 1. What are the differences of the functions between TRIRIGA on SaaS and TRIRIGA on premise? Please provide a list of the differences.
- 2. Can we use mail notifications to other users from TRIRIGA on SaaS?
- 3. Can we make and incorporate BIRT reports into TRIRIGA on SaaS?
I wanted to respond to this, in case these questions still needed answers.
- (1) The functionality in TRIRIGA SaaS versus TRIRIGA on-premise should be the same. If there is something that is not working that the client feels should be working, I would encourage your client to raise a ticket with the TRIRIGA SaaS team.
- (2) Yes, email notifications should work provided that the SaaS server has a way of reaching the client’s mail server.
- (3) Yes, the client should be able to make BIRT reports and incorporate them into TRIRIGA SaaS.

The real estate industry has the perception of being a slow-moving adopter of emerging technology – across its lifecycle. Once building systems are installed, they are generally not upgraded or replaced until absolutely necessary because of the cost intensive nature the renovation work required.
Recently, however… increased use of technologies such as smart equipment and sensors and cloud-based software for energy, maintenance and space utilization management begs the question – How is the facility management industry to stay up to date and relevant in the era of smart buildings? There are three routes the industry needs to pursue to stay on top of new technologies.
- The first is to use FM training programs, such as those offered through industry associations like the British Institute of Facilities Management or the International Facility Management Association…
- Secondly, aspiring facility managers need to be trained on the use of new technologies from the start. Siemens is assisting the Tallahassee Community College (TCC) to design and equip a “Living Lab”…
- Finally, firms may find it too cost intensive to continuously provide training on new technologies to staff – it may be more beneficial to consider contracting with specialist services providers, such as Siemens…
