Smashing another TRIRIGAFEEDIA milestone into smithereens


Today, TRIRIGAFEEDIA exceeded 100,000 hits! To put this into perspective, while it reached its first 10,000 hits in less than 8 months, it reached its last 10,000 hits in less than 2 months! Thanks to the TRIRIGA Around the World Facebook group, the TRIMAX user group, and the greater TRIRIGA community for reading, following, rating, commenting, and feeding TRIRIGAFEEDIA. I truly appreciate it!

IBM InterConnect 2017 Bootcamp labs developers shouldn’t miss


When learning about new technologies and tools, it often helps to get one’s hands just a little bit dirty and see what really makes them work. That’s the idea behind the new Bootcamp labs at IBM InterConnect 2017, March 19-23 in Las Vegas.

These instructor-led labs run 3 to 4 hours, giving enrollees the opportunity to do hands-on work with new products and technologies. Attendees can find a deeper dive in these sessions led by subject matter experts…

IoT Platform to Maximo/TRIRIGA hands-on lab

Thursday, 8:30 AM – 12:15 PM, Mandalay Bay South Seas I1, Session ID: 7436A

This lab offers attendees a basic understanding of how connected operations work. Use a simulated temperature sensor (a gauge meter in Maximo) to send a temperature reading to the Internet of Things (IoT) Quickstart. The message is then sent to NODE-RED, which parses the message. When a reading changes, it goes into a REST-API call that inserts the meter reading into the referenced asset meter readings. The reading updates the measure point and triggers a work order using Maximo functionality, or if one chooses to do so, using a TRIRIGA work task…

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…
