There’s an old metaphor originating from Plato that compares the soul to that of a chariot with a pair of winged horses. Chariots of the gods were equipped with two good horses, while us mere mortals were given one good horse and one bad, unruly horse, depicting the conflicts of the soul. Due to this imbalance, we would always face hardships. But those of us who could put that unruliness to use could potentially rise high enough to hang with the gods.
What does this have to do with IBM TRIRIGA and hanging out at TRIMAX this week? Not a whole lot, I just like to throw out fascinating metaphors. However, if you’re looking to power up your facilities “chariot” with the fiercest of good stallions, and corral the unruliness of unused data, you may want to read on.
The five fierce stallions of 2017
When it comes to fierce stallions, why have 2 when you can have 5? And when you’re talking about investments around TRIRIGA, the more the merrier. Here are the top 5 stallions driving the chariot of your facilities management efforts this year:
- 1. New lease accounting standards drive compliance domination…
- 2. Analytics help you understand the performance of your chariot…
- 3. Cloud isn’t just for mythical gods…
- 4. Mobility enables the business to soar from anywhere…
- 5. User experience (UX) drives Herculean engagement…

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.

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.

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.
