Are you a TRIRIGA user or partner in the UK? Not a member of the IBM TRIRIGA UK User Group community yet? It’s easy to join this great community here. Why should I join this community, you may wonder? Well, the purpose of this group is to share information and experiences, to leverage our position with IBM, and to facilitate communication with IBM. Here are some of the benefits to joining the IBM TRIRIGA UK User Group:

  • Access to the latest product information from IBM
  • Face-to-face user group meetings
  • Networking with like-minded professionals

There is a user group meeting coming up on Tuesday, November 29, 2016 at the IBM Southbank offices. The agenda includes a case study by Marks & Spencer, the TRIRIGA roadmap, and other sessions you don’t want to miss! The link to register and view the full agenda is here. We hope you will join this great community and hope to see you at the meeting in Southbank on the 29th!

ValuD leads in providing technology solutions to RE/FM

ValuD Consulting was founded in 2009 by Gopi Latpate who was one of the lead architects of the original TRIRIGA platform and application. In the beginning, the company provided services and sub-contracts. When IBM acquired TRIRIGA in 2011, ValuD was providing services and sub-contract work to a variety of clients. Around 2013, the company took on more independent work and became one of the biggest IBM TRIRIGA players in the market.

Today, with over 130 resources globally and over 50 certifications, ValuD is the largest IBM TRIRIGA provider in the world. The company’s team is made of many of the original developers of the product which they believe brings more depth to their offerings. In recent years, ValuD has been named a Premier IBM Business Partner and obtained the IBM Leadership Award in 2014, and it landed #1455 on the list of Fastest Growing Companies on Inc. 5000 in 2015…

This year, ValuD invested in Motors@Work, an energy management SaaS solution based on a patent pending innovation for managing commercial and industrial motor-driven systems. Motors@Work was recently recognized as a key strategic solution in the utilities technology space by an IBM leader at the Maximo User Group Spring Workshop in Detroit.

With mobility being in such high demand, the company has worked to develop a mobility solution that allows users to interact with the IBM TRIRIGA application in both real time and offline modes. Look for a release in early summer…

Where can you find more TRIRIGA support resources?

Hi all, can you share your other TRIRIGA support resources? I am not getting the answers I need here to support my customers and support is pretty slow too, i.e. 1-3 months to get an answer. I know the triDeveloper Google group and a couple of more or less active LinkedIn groups, and TRIRIGAFEEDIA, the WordPress hub, which is kind of an aggregator that notifies you through email of new TRIRIGA-related activity from multiple sources. Anything else?
