Joining the IBM TRIRIGA UKI user group community (May 2017)


Meeting: Tuesday, May 9, 2017, 9:30 AM to 03:15 PM (London)

The next IBM TRIRIGA UK & Ireland (UKI) User Group meeting is coming up on Tuesday, May 9, 2017! Save the date with these agenda and registration links.

Once again, it will be at the IBM Southbank offices (although the User Group committee is hoping to spread their wings for the autumn meeting). In a big step forward, we will be joining up with our colleagues at the Maximo User Group for the keynote address. Bringing the two groups together will allow us to share a high-profile keynote speaker, and then break out into our own sessions for both TRIRIGA and Maximo. Of course, you then have a great opportunity to mingle with the Maximo delegates over coffee and lunch.

So, are you a TRIRIGA user or partner in the UK or Ireland? Not a member of the IBM TRIRIGA UKI User Group Community yet? It’s easy to join this great community here. Here are some of the benefits to joining the IBM TRIRIGA UKI User Group:

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

The User Group committee will be trying something fresh, namely one breakout stream will be a Q&A around WebSphere. Designed more for technical support staff, this will be a chance to meet an expert and raise your questions in an informal environment. There will be a newsletter sent out soon. So, why not register now and get further details in the newsletter? We hope you will join this great community and hope to see you at the meeting in Southbank on May 9th!

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…
