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”.

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…

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.

Prior to using FM:Systems Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS), FM:Interact, the University had abandoned an obsolete Space Management solution and were largely using Excel sheets to “guesstimate” space utilization…
After investigated 6 different Space Management software providers, they chose FM:Systems because it met, and exceeded, these baseline requirements:
- FM:Systems provided more out-of-the-box functionality than its competitors
- FM:Systems had a vested interest in our success, because it offered direct contact during implementation and maintenance, with no third-party managing the process
- The Software as a Service (SaaS) model meant FM:Systems had a lower cost of implementation and ongoing maintenance
- The system allows for unlimited “general users” which was critical to the RCM mandate for transparency
- The user interface was easier to navigate for University stakeholders than other products investigated
- The most compelling reason for choosing FM:Systems? Their people.
