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.

FieldFLEX: Is your enterprise ready for mobile?


How do you determine what is the best mobile solution for your enterprise that will enable users to get the data and functionality they need? What software will integrate smoothly, assimilate large amounts of data, comply with your security requirements, give the end users an engaged experience, and ultimately make your business more effective and efficient?

Here are the answers to the top questions asked at the FieldFLEX booth during the recent IBM InterConnect 2017 conference.

What is the security level with the FieldFLEX mobile app?

At the device level, all data is encrypted for transport to and from the server over SSL. Any data stored on the mobile device resides in an encrypted mobile database. The FieldFLEX server stores no data. User access is controlled by username and password authentication or through mobile device management platform…

What back-end systems does FieldFLEX integrate with?

Our mobile platform integrates with IBM TRIRIGA, Maximo, and a variety of other products. It is the single mobile solution for corporate real estate, condition assessment, facilities management, operations, lease and capital projects…

How are drawings published?

Mobile drawings can be published directly from your AutoCAD or Revit floor plans. Customers can choose published content which offers layering visibility control. FieldFLEX drawing publisher reduces the CAD file size by up to 90% to improve download speed and performance in the mobile apps…

IBM InterConnect 2017 Bootcamp labs developers shouldn’t miss


When learning about new technologies and tools, it often helps to get one’s hands just a little bit dirty and see what really makes them work. That’s the idea behind the new Bootcamp labs at IBM InterConnect 2017, March 19-23 in Las Vegas.

These instructor-led labs run 3 to 4 hours, giving enrollees the opportunity to do hands-on work with new products and technologies. Attendees can find a deeper dive in these sessions led by subject matter experts…

IoT Platform to Maximo/TRIRIGA hands-on lab

Thursday, 8:30 AM – 12:15 PM, Mandalay Bay South Seas I1, Session ID: 7436A

This lab offers attendees a basic understanding of how connected operations work. Use a simulated temperature sensor (a gauge meter in Maximo) to send a temperature reading to the Internet of Things (IoT) Quickstart. The message is then sent to NODE-RED, which parses the message. When a reading changes, it goes into a REST-API call that inserts the meter reading into the referenced asset meter readings. The reading updates the measure point and triggers a work order using Maximo functionality, or if one chooses to do so, using a TRIRIGA work task…

How do you fix record updates in Maximo Integrators for TRIRIGA?


In order for the IBM Maximo Integrators for TRIRIGA to work properly and have the TRIRIGA updates also be updated in Maximo, a Maximo System Property must be set. This property name is “mxe.int.keyresponse”. More information on this Maximo system property can be found here: Integration system properties. To set the system property, you can follow the steps below…

ValuD: Interview with Motors@Work


As “going green” becomes not only a trend but a necessity in our world today, it’s important we talk about energy conservation. Industrial consumption accounts for at least 42% of the global electricity consumption and a significant portion of that is wasted. With one third of such industrial consumption being used by electric motors, it goes without saying that energy conservation in electric motors is a must have. And that is exactly where Rod Ellsworth and his team at Motors@Work(TM) come into the picture…

VC: Good to know that Motors@Work(TM) has earned the trust and confidence of its clients! You recently announced that Motors@Work(TM) will be available as a SaaS solution in IBM Bluemix. Are there any specific reasons for you to choose IBM Bluemix as your Platform as a Service (PaaS) provider?

RE: Well, there are quite a few reasons for us to choose IBM Bluemix as our PaaS partner. For one, IBM currently happens to be one of the leading PaaS providers in the market today and is also the market leader in the Asset Performance Management sector. The way we look at it, Motors@Work(TM) energy intelligence has value on its own but our customers will get the extended benefit when our energy intelligence data is combined with historical data and live data streams from connected devices, sensors, and other IBM Watson IoT hub components. Moreover, the systematic integration of Motors@Work(TM) with Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) Applications will provide seamless business process integration for non-conformity mitigation and energy improvement opportunity execution. Additionally, this partnership will enable us to integrate our application with IBM’s Maximo Asset Management and TRIRIGA RE/FM applications, which again would be beneficial to our clients. We feel that this will be a win-win relationship for us as well as for our clients…
