Connecting with the Internet of Things at IBM Insight 2015 - October 25 – October 29 | Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, NV

What do a bicycle race, a washing machine and a sub-Saharan farm have in common?
The Internet of Things (IoT). It’s no joke; they’re all examples of how organizations representing a variety of industries are benefiting from data insights derived from the IoT. And they’ll be among the stories everyone’s going to be talking about when the spotlight shines on IoT at IBM Insight 2015.
I’m excited to learn more at the conference about the Tour de France and Race Across America bicycle races leveraging IBM technology to change the experience for riders and spectators; about Whirlpool analyzing data from connected appliances; and about the IBM EZ-Farm project (which won the IoT Hackathon) in sub-Saharan Africa, where data collected from moisture sensors is playing a big part in helping combat the effects of drought.
But as you’ll see at Insight 2015, there’s even more to the Internet of Things than the considerable benefits it can bring to individual organizations. What’s especially amazing is how data from IoT-connected systems can be applied beyond localized experiences. For example, once you have data intelligence in a connected car, the collected usage data can advise the driver of potential problems or routine maintenance issues. And consider the value of the data beyond that—to an insurer, perhaps, that can use it to provide incentives to low-mileage drivers and safe drivers.
The point is that insights from one industry can affect everyday business decisions in areas well beyond that industry. Data intelligence coming from a particular product, whether it’s a car, bicycle or washing machine, can also be used in unexpected ways that have an impact on other services or products and on us as consumers.
In addition to IoT sessions focusing on real-world examples from the Tour de France, Whirlpool, EZ-Farm and other organizations, there will also be demonstrations of IBM Analytics technology for IoT, presentations featuring IBM Business Partners who have worked firsthand with customers to integrate IoT into their operations and much more. Don’t miss any of th

If you’re a TRIRIGA user, by now you know some of the great features of this plat
Our most recent platform release (220.127.116.11) more fully embraces HTML5 and reduces the number of Java Applets used which have many client computer implications. Of course it includes some code fixes and enhancements too. The result is not only improved functionality but the ability to use a wide array of current browsers including IE, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari. All of this brings value to your implementation of TRIRIGA and we strongly recommend adopting this new TRIRIGA Platform.
To get the most out of TRIRIGA, you will need to upgrade your applications as well. Although, older applications will continue to run on the newer platform, the new functionality built into newer applications will not be there. While there are many benefits to upgrading just the platform, there are many more when you upgrade both your platform and applications (note, you cannot upgrade applications beyond the level of the matched platform level).
One last but certainly not least reason to upgrade is supportability. IBM TRIRIGA makes every effort to stay current with its supporting technology but as the technology business changes at an ever increasing pace, we can only support our products on the technology they were built on for so long. Generally, we try to support our products for 5 years but there are sometimes reasons beyond our control that cause us to end support for products earlier than that. When End Of Support (EOS) is eminent, we work hard to notify clients many months or even years in advance. All clients and users should sign up for notifications on any IBM products you use at the following link:
The table below shows products that have already reached EOS as well as the list of products we currently support. Note that IBM is unable to accept PMRs on products that do not have a support agreement that covers them. As of today, all TRIRIGA Platform versions prior to 3.3 are EOS and all applications prior to 10.2 are EOS.
Read below for a rollup of the most recent blog posts from the Maximo Support Desk on Service Management Connect. Be sure to click through the titles of the posts to get more in depth insights from the post authors and information on monitoring, mobile, and data analysis in this fast moving industry as it changes our world.

5 minutes of smart: Tracing project requirements - By using an automated tool to facilitate tracing project requirements (in this case, Rational DOORS Next Generation), you can take charge and make managing project requirements a smooth, continuous process.
5 minutes of smart: How to link requirements to development artifacts - An important initial task to successfully manage requirements in a development project includes linking requirements and artifacts. Choosing the correct link type is key. Learn about links types in a typical RM tool such as Rational DOORS Next Generation. You can also experiment with the DOORSng tool in a 60-day free trial.
You can expand your tracing skills for free. IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation, the automated requirements management platform, makes following the links between a requirement and its origins, a requirement and other requirements, or a requirements and other artifacts, much easier. As an experiment, sign up for the fully functional 60-day free trial of DOORS Next Generation and re-manage a project you've already finished for comparison, create a new sample project to manage, or start building requirements management for a project you're about to begin for a client.

Rational DOORS Next Generation now lets you create client extensions. Extensions are complete web applications that run inside a dedicated area of the DOORS user interface, allowing users to embed custom web content. IBM Bluemix provides a powerful and easy-to-use platform for hosting web applications and extensions.
Integrate Rational DOORS Next Generation and Evernote, Part 2 - In this tutorial, the second of three parts, see how to build a web front end using the Express JS framework, and how to allow users to authenticate to the popular note-taking software Evernote using OAuth instead of using a single developer token.
Integrate Rational DOORS Next Generation and Evernote, Part 3 - In this tutorial, the last of three parts, see how to build a web front end using the Express JS framework, and how to allow users to authenticate to the popular note-taking software Evernote using OAuth instead of using a single developer token.
In this 3-part series, you've seen how to build an integration with Evernote. We started with the API and moved on to building a standalone Node.js web application that allows users to browse their Evernote data. Then you saw how to adapt this web app into a DOORS Next Generation extension. I hope that this example has given you a taste of what can be achieved with DOORS Next client extensions and a sense of how easy it is to build and deploy your own extensions using Bluemix.
Free trial: Try Rational DOORS Next Generation free for 90 days. Let this platform for global team collaboration help you manage requirements more effectively and share common administration of users, servers, and projects.

IBM has been delivering Internet Of Things solutions for a Smarter Planet even before the campaign launch in 2008
Check out this Introduction to the IBM IoT Foundation on Slidshare:
I am new to the IBM TRIRIGA Support organization, working as a Level 2 Support Engineer. It has been my observation when reviewing PMR's that there is a lot of time spent going back and forth between the customer and the support engineer. It seems to me that this is due, in part, because not enough information was initially provided. Many times I have seen, in a PMR, that the customer is getting some error. Sometimes they just say they are getting an error or they may report the specific error with no information about how it happened, what version they were using or what they were doing. Many times there are vague steps with our client thinking that TRIRIGA engineers should know what they are trying to do.
I wanted to share what happens in support so that clients might understand why information about a problem is so important. When support receives a PMR we try to reproduce the issue based on the information given to us. If we are not given enough information, we are forced to collect it by making requests that can take days or even weeks to accomplish. Time zones play a role where each email can take a full day to get to the right people and get a response. In some cases, if we are provided with not enough information we may fail to replicate the problem which does not mean it is not an issue, it just means we may have replicated incorrectly because we are missing information or there are configurations or customized workflows that we do not have. There could be something in the way that the customer is doing something versus how the support engineer is doing something, because with software, there can be more than one way of doing something. If we need to get additional information it just takes that much more time.
We recognize that your time is valuable and it can be frustrating going back and forth to get the necessary information to reproduce an issue. What would help us in IBM TRIRIGA Support, is when entering a PMR, clients provide detailed step by step instructions as if you were asking your non tech-savy grandmother to reproduce. It may sound corny but it really is all in the details. As I mentioned, there could be more than one way to do something and left to our own devices, we might not do it the same way as you (the customer), so the more details the better.
If you have ever cooked and followed a recipe you are following steps. You might think of that approach for entering your steps to reproduce an issue.
Your time is valuable and we recognize that. The more detailed you are with your initial entry on the PMR, the less time spent going back and forth trying to get the steps and more time can be spent on reproducing and resolving your issue.
Remember, we do have a document we often call a “Must Gather” or “Information To Collect” document for TRIRIGA PMRs. You should always submit this when you open a PMR. You can generally fill it out and save it so you always have it handy to attach to PMRs, just remember to update it when something changes. See it here:
