Connecting TRIRIGA to the Internet of Things (IoT)

[Updated 05.05.15 to add the m2m demos @ IBM]

Tracy Jefferson: Can you imagine a facility where everything is interconnected? How about TRIRIGA that can be fed information like heat map data to see traffic through spaces? Where a person can enter a space, the system recognizes who it is, alters the art and music to the person’s taste, and for security purposes creates a log record in TRIRIGA? What about a maintenance technician entering a room, verbally activating the system, and informing TRIRIGA he has started work on a work order, then when complete informs the system? These are real possibilities!

IBM MessageSight is an appliance designed for the Internet of Things (IoT) and mobile environments. It provides a secure, DMZ-ready channel for lightweight, rapid, bi-directional messaging.
