ValuD: What is TRIMAX and why should you attend?


Conferences and trade shows provide a great way to learn and discover industry trends in a short period of time. Please consider attending TRIMAX this year…

What is TRIMAX?

TRIMAX is an annual conference which provides a forum for participants to share knowledge and learn from other TRIRIGA and Maximo clients, business partners and IBM leaders. If you are a RE/FM/EAM business, then TRIMAX is the event for you. This year’s event is being held at Arlington, VA on November 29th and 30th with an optional training day on December 1st. More than 600 participants are expected to attend the various presentations and sessions.

Why attend TRIMAX?

IBM TRIRIGA and IBM Maximo are leaders in asset management and IWMS application software and TRIMAX is the only user group with a combined focus for both. Naturally, such a focused user group can give you insights on product updates, solution road maps, and industry best practices…
