Let your building data tell a story

See how data + advanced capabilities = data story telling (and sign up for the webinar, too)

By | 4 minute read | November 7, 2019

You’re probably collecting massive amounts of data about your buildings. Data around occupancy, space utilization, energy consumption, maintenance, capital planning, leases, and more. It’s an overwhelming amount of data to consume and understand across many buildings. How do you make sense of it all? Processes to collect and manage that data are still largely manual. In fact, more than 60% of buildings are managed using paper, specifications, or manuals.

If you’re confused, you’re not alone. As independent research firm, Verdantix found, more than 67% of firms are frustrated by how long it takes to analyze data. Now is the time to ask yourself these questions:

  • Would you like to create your own reports, rather than rely on administrators to create reports for you?
  • Do you wish you had more freedom to reorganize columns, or add two columns together, or filter the data differently?
  • Do you export your data to Excel to sort and visualize it the way you want to see it?
  • Is it challenging to quickly customize the data visualizations to meet the needs of different stakeholders?
  • Do you need a current view but instead, end up working with an out-of-data snapshot of data?

And if you answered “yes” to any of these, then you also realize that these challenges have a few things in common: lost time, wasted effort, and missed opportunity. The reality is, analyzing your data shouldn’t be so time consuming.

Now’s the time to consider advanced reporting

Let’s talk about how you can now use your data to really tell a story with new TRIRIGA advanced reporting capabilities. IBM TRIRIGA Reporting puts control in the hands of the person analyzing the data. It allows you to act on the insights and customize reports to suit your needs. That means you can make better real-time decisions, and easily share the analysis with your team and critical stakeholders. In short, TRIRIGA Reporting enables you to easily manipulate the wealth of data you already have in TRIRIGA. Accelerate your decision making for your entire real estate portfolio.

The advantages of TRIRIGA Reporting

The advanced reporting capabilities in TRIRIGA Reporting include:

  • Next-level data visualization with user-defined reports and graphs.
  • Information at your fingertips with self-serve, on-demand reporting.
  • Reporting directly against your operational data, eliminating the need to download your latest report into Excel.

The simple-to-use user interface allows any TRIRIGA user to work with interactive reports and graphs. That means you can use existing TRIRIGA queries to analyze real-time data. With the reports dashboard, you can easily create your own interactive reports and graphs, making it simpler to share with others. You’ll also find innovative features like custom columns, grouping and aggregation, which allows you to create new calculations using live data.

Use TRIRIGA Reporting to do things like:

  • Understand spaces by floor
  • Understand spaces by organization and building
  • Classify capital projects by budget
  • Visualize work order status
  • Design any other graph or report you can think of.

A reporting example

Let’s look at an example of a complicated report you can easily created with the advanced reporting capabilities. In this example, I’m combining service request with work order to allow the maintenance manager to see service requests broken down by the lifecycle stage of the work order. First, I create a report from an existing TRIRIGA query, manipulating and combining the data until it has the information I want to see:


Then I can quickly turn that report into an interactive graph to visualize the data:

Available now, the TRIRIGA Reporting offering is an OM package that quickly and easily installs into an on-premise or SaaS TRIRIGA implementation. It is compatible with v3.5.x and 3.6.x of the TRIRIGA Application Platform.

The bottom line: data + advanced capabilities = data story telling. Attend the webinar to learn more.
