How can you monitor space with your existing wireless network?


IBM TRIRIGA and Cisco partnership provides scalable workplace utilization and occupancy monitoring

By Kendra DeKeyrel

IBM TRIRIGA and Cisco have teamed up to give you the tools you need to deploy location sensing using your existing WiFi network infrastructure. This solution helps you scale quickly and get faster, more accurate occupancy insights, to enable you to reimagine and streamline your connected spaces…

With this partnership, IBM TRIRIGA’s IoT and AI-driven insights application, IBM TRIRIGA Building Insights, now natively integrates with Cisco’s DNA Spaces cloud service. If you’re a space planner or manage facilities, you can quickly take advantage of these insights. With a lower cost to entry, you can understand how facilities are being used based on data coming in from an existing network…

If you need to quickly address new occupancy demands, please attend an IBM/Cisco webinar. Designed for space planners and facilities managers, we will explain how true occupancy insights enables you to make strategic space management decisions. Register today.

How do you clean up the SESSION_HISTORY table?


The SESSION_HISTORY table uses 500GB of disk space in our production environment. What is the best way to clean it up?

You would want to make appropriate backups and test this thoroughly, but this is something that can be done via the Platform Maintenance Scheduler (formerly Cleanup Agent) in the IBM TRIRIGA Admin Console. You can develop SQL to do the cleanups as they meet your business requirements, add that as a new cleanup command at the bottom section of the window, and then add a new Cleanup Schedule event in the top section of the window to have it run periodically.

This may be something that you want to reach out to a business partner for assistance with, depending on your skill and comfort level in implementing such a change. If so, you can search the IBM PartnerWorld portal.

ValuD: What is TRIMAX and why should you attend?


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…

Verdantix: Will LED-based Li-Fi replace Wi-Fi technology?


Li-Fi is an exciting emerging technology that’s got the communications technology world talking. By transmitting data by modulating LED lights and using a light detector as a receiver, Li-Fi is extremely fast compared to Wi-Fi, being able to stream up to 224 gigabits per second compared to 100 gigabits achievable by the world’s fastest Wi-Fi network.

It also has great security benefits as it is harder to intercept the signal outside of the building (or smart building). There are potential cost advantages too as ordinary LED lights can be used lowering operational and maintenance costs, although this will depend on the router and receiver costs once production at scale is reached…

Only in 2017, we have witnessed three significant acquisitions and partnerships.
