Conferences and trade shows provide a great way to learn and discover industry trends in a short period of time. Please consider attending TRIMAX this year…
What is TRIMAX?
TRIMAX is an annual conference which provides a forum for participants to share knowledge and learn from other TRIRIGA and Maximo clients, business partners and IBM leaders. If you are a RE/FM/EAM business, then TRIMAX is the event for you. This year’s event is being held at Arlington, VA on November 29th and 30th with an optional training day on December 1st. More than 600 participants are expected to attend the various presentations and sessions.
Why attend TRIMAX?
IBM TRIRIGA and IBM Maximo are leaders in asset management and IWMS application software and TRIMAX is the only user group with a combined focus for both. Naturally, such a focused user group can give you insights on product updates, solution road maps, and industry best practices…

Real estate directors and heads of estates are always looking out for what will drive the next wave of office improvements and cost efficiency. Space management is one of those hot topics at the moment. There has certainly been a flurry of deals between vendors offering space management solutions, all aiming to offer end-users more options on how to make better use of every square foot they occupy.
But behind all the deals there are two distinct questions being answered: (1) How do I reduce space-related inconveniences like occupants struggling to find spare meeting rooms or desks, and (2) How do I reduce the amount of space I use whilst allowing my business operations to run smoothly?
FM:Systems updated its space reservation app and floor plan viewer, and Condeco integrated its room booking module with Creston’s scheduling software and touch screens. ISS is piloting a self-service app for room booking. iOffice launched Hummingbird, which offers wayfinding and reservations through an app… IWMS vendors like Accruent are also tapping space utilization vendors such as Serraview for reseller partnerships…

TRIRIGA Mobility Solution (MobilD)
Do you need to improve your work efficiency for your TRIRIGA users but fear mobility has a steep learning curve? Are you looking for an out-of-the-box TRIRIGA mobility solution with simple role-based buttons and menus? Then you are not alone. Kiel Schmitz, a former St. Paul Information Systems leader, shares a customer’s perspective on selecting and implementing the ValuD MobilD solution.
- Challenges and objectives for a TRIRIGA Mobility project
- Targeted roles and tasks including service requests and inspections
- Project results and benefits
- Lessons learned
Join the ValuD Session
Join the session to learn more about how MobilD delivers a role-based user experience on any device with mobile access such as phones or tablets whether connected or offline. Requester, technician, or supervisor users only see information that is directly relevant to their role and their work process, which drives timely service requests, quicker assignments, higher user adoption, and better data collection. The MobilD solution was tailored to St. Paul’s TRIRIGA customizations, within a short time-frame, extending TRIRIGA on Mobile.

There has been a running debate on how to define a “real” mobility solution for IBM TRIRIGA – do we depend on a UI/UX framework or on commercially available solutions?
A UI/UX solution is a good platform solution that serves as an extension of the desktop TRIRIGA solution, but definitely has its limitations particularly for offline capabilities and keeping development costs in check. Mobility solutions need to operate offline and to leverage the native capabilities of the mobile device and platform. Based on our interaction with a variety of customers, we found some key challenges in evaluating the IBM mobility technology options…
How can we help?
Having executed multiple IBM TRIRIGA implementations, ValuD knows and anticipated the issues faced by customers. Given our in-depth expertise, ValuD designed a mobility solution solely for IBM TRIRIGA.
ValuD’s IBM TRIRIGA mobility solution – MobilD – was developed on true MADP (Mobile Application Development Platform) called Xamarin, an open source platform for developing MobilD. Microsoft acquired Xamarin recently and they made the entire development toolkit free to increase the market penetration. Xamarin, a widely known MADP, has thousands of application developer networks that can help organizations acquire the necessary skills for future development or management.
Another key factor is the choice of middleware solution; most current vendors use a “proprietary” middleware solution that needs a footprint on one of the TRIRIGA servers. MobilD’s middleware choice is Microsoft Azure which is a hosted solution and does not need any footprint on TRIRIGA servers and can also work with your SaaS solution or on-premise solutions…

Applying condition-based maintenance with IBM TRIRIGA helps to assess a facility’s or an asset’s performance, capture its lifecycle costs, and to identify necessary repairs and replacements. An integrated set of performance metrics of a facility’s condition is needed to predict when to repurpose, or renovate structures.
Building operations and maintenance managers are primarily responsible for assessing the condition of building components like roofs, air conditioning, walls, electrical, and communications. Forecasting facility conditions and predicting repairs before failure occurs, results in cost reduction. IBM TRIRIGA automates demand and preventive maintenance services to reduce the cost of maintenance operations.
TRIRIGA’s facilities and operations manager is an intense CMMS that enables organizations to manage their building assets and facilities over their lifecycle in order to reduce maintenance expenses. It provides condition-based facility assessments that help you to prioritize the areas for capital improvement and assists you in extending the life of your facilities and facility assets.

According to the 2016 Verdantix annual survey of 250 energy and facility decision-makers, 17% of firms continue to separate energy and asset management processes, 58% use energy management to inform asset management, while the remaining 25% of firms have fully integrated energy and asset management…
The landscape of vendors providing solutions for improved asset management is broad and highly competitive. Firms range from integrated workplace management system (IWMS) providers such as Accruent, iOffice, Planon, Qube, and Trimble Manhattan; to computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) providers, such as Dude Solutions and eMaint; to building energy management software providers, such as Envizi, Schneider Electric, and Siemens; and smart building platforms, like Switch Automation. The next five years will see an increased emphasis on partnerships as vendors seek to provide additional value add capabilities including advanced analytics and enhanced data capture functionalities…
