  • Speakers: Christopher Tilley, eCIFM Solutions Inc.; Elizabeth Neeley, Maricopa County; Frank Zele, eCIFM Solutions Inc.
  • Abstract:
    The Maricopa County Facilities Management Department (FMD) is responsible
    for many functions in relation to building and location assets, move
    management, space planning and management, project management and
    facility maintenance. Lack of integration and use of multiple systems
    to manage assets and facilities made the county recognize the efficiencies
    and value that could be gained by integrating asset management and IWMS
    applications. Join this presentation and learn how eCIFM helped FMD
    better serve its internal and external customers by implementing IBM TRIRIGA
    Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS)
    and closely integrating it with
    IBM Maximo. FMD now uses Maximo for its time and cost accounting, alongside
    TRIRIGA for facilities management (which is where the work requests originate).
    This presentation will demonstrate how the integration between the
    TRIRIGA BusinessConnect API and Maximo web services opened up FMD to
    realize unparalleled operational efficiencies.


Integrating TRIRIGA and Maximo

I am currently wrapping up one of my latest integration projects, an integration between two IBM products, TRIRIGA and Maximo.  TRIRIGA is a facility management suite while Maximo is an asset management suite.  Both of these platforms provide SOAP web services which can be leveraged to accomplish the integration.  This however does not mean the integration is a simple matter.  There is a fair amount of customization required to get the the two applications exchanging data.  I will add more details later…
