There are quite a few ways to engage in extended learning in IBM and obtain both professional certifications as well as open badges recognizing your achievements and knowledge.
For professional certifications surrounding the Watson Internet of Things unit, check out IBM's Professional Certification Program here: http
You may also want to investigate the IBM Open Badge Certification Program here: http
The Certified badge is awarded to IT professionals who have successfully completed the requirements associated with selected solutions, selected advanced/expert certifications and to individuals who have made significant contribution to the development of IBM certification exams. This badge is typically associated with the learner who has achieved and demonstrated an exceptionally high level of understanding of the topic represented by the certification. All IBM certification credentials can be shared on Linkedin (Watch Now). When a certification is eligible for a badge, that badge can also be shared on social media.
Of course, you can also take a look at the IBM Skills Gateway and their use of the Open Badge system. What is an Open Badge? An open badge is a digital representation of an outcome or achievement. Open badges refer specifically to badges that adhere to an open standard being led by the Mozilla Foundation for recognizing and validating learning. They are secure, web-enabled credentials that contain granular, verified information employers can use to evaluate an individual’s potential.
IBM credentials are recognized, respected and valued globally in the IT industry, but communicating your credentials in today’s ever-expanding online marketplace can be challenging. IBM has established this opportunity so you may easily and quickly share verified proof of your achievement wherever and whenever you choose. Where applicable, your IBM credentials will be represented by a digital image that contains verified metadata describing your qualifications and the rigorous process necessary to earn them.
You can use the Find a Badge link to search and locate the badges you're interested in (here's a hint, use the Filter drop list to select "Watson" for all the Watson and IoT related badges available): http
Lastly, there is a great Coursera program that will guide you through using the Watson IoT Platform on Bluemix, and once completed, you can receive a certificate: http
There is even a Cloud Application Developer course which covers IBM Bluemix as well: http
With so many options, we're certain you can find something that is just right for your own journey in the IoT world!

Are you new to using TRIRIGA and wonder how do you ever get started with your Preventive Maintenance schedules? I know that when I came over to TRIRIGA, I had some trouble so I am going to go through creating a work plan that includes a service plan and what that means for your task creation. Most preventive maintenance schedules have some kind of job plan - a list of tasks that need to get done and will occur on a schedule, be it weekly, monthly, quarterly, yearly, etc.
The first step is to create your job plan, which is called Plan Work inside of TRIRIGA. This is found under Maintenance -> Preventive Maintenance -> Plan Work. Your job plan is then based on assets, locations or systems. What is a system? A system is a collection of assets or locations. After you have identified if your job plan is for assets or locations, you can go create your Preventive Maintenance (PM) schedule. That's where it really gets "fun"!
So create a new Work Plan that will have the Resource type set to All Resources in Selected Systems. And add 2 Assets to it. Then go to the PM Schedules tab and let's add a schedule for those Assets.
You are going to need to define a Request Class. This request class defines the type of work, like if it's for HVAC , Electrical, Plumbing, etc. Associated with this Request class is what is called a service plan. This service plan identifies information about task creation, SLA's, priority, etc. Knowing the service plan you are using is really important to know but I will get into more on that later.
Now you need to create the pattern or frequency of the schedule. How often will this be needed - daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, yearly, etc. You can also choose to do shadowing PM's but for this we will not be including that. Once you have identified all that, your tasks are now created. This could take a little bit of time depending on the length of your schedule and how many assets/locations are on it.
Now about those service plans. Here are some examples of how they work.
You have a work plan with 2 assets on it. Create the Preventive Maintenance schedule so that it occurs daily for 5 days. And the service plan is set to create tasks for single tasks. The end result is that it will create 10 tasks in total. 5 tasks for each asset. If you go back and add another asset to the work plan, then another 5 tasks will be added. So each asset will get their own set of tasks. If you are using a system, the functionality will work the same way. The key is the service plan is set to create tasks for single tasks.
Now in another scenario that will also have 2 assets on it but the service plan is going to be set to create single task for all assets. So you have a work plan with 2 assets on it. Create the Preventive Maintenance schedule so that it occurs daily for 5 days. Set the service plan to create a single task for all assets. The end result will be that it will only show 5 tasks because the same task will be applied to all the assets on the work plan. You would have to go look at the association of the task to see all the assets lists. See the screen shot below for an example.
And if you add a new asset to this scenario, it will not add a new task. It will just add another association to the new asset from the task.
So now that you know this, go on and create your work plan for your maintenance schedules!

When a new project is started the majority of the time business needs (or requirements) are captured and defined through text. Rational DOORS Next Generation provides a complete Web based environment for documenting rich text project information providing your team all the typical controls that you would expect in a word processor but with the added benefit of a shared team experience. Rational DOORS Next Generation gives your team members a great way to capture their information using standard templates and a project wide glossary to help unify development teams around a common vocabulary.
Features – Rational DOORS Next Generation: Features to drive your project forward
Capture and Organize Requirements – Overview – Rational Doors Next Generation: Business needs come in many different forms, formats and language. Bringing them all together in a single place, removing redundancy, and connecting interrelated content is the first step to requirements definition and management. Rational DOORS Next Generation is IBM’s next generation Web based team environment to capture your business needs, diagrams, use cases, design, storyboards, and other critical project information that will help drive your business.
Collaboration and Review – Rational DOORS Next Generation: Each stakeholder in a project may be interested in different information (e.g. defect backlog, current tasks, or release schedule). Rational DOORS Next Generation allows you to create custom a dashboard with multiple pages, each displaying a customizable view, of a given project, to quickly investigate the desired information at any time. Each page contains custom viewlets, each with a specific purpose.
Visually Define – Rational DOORS Next Generation: Do you or your employees spend too much time wondering if all necessary business requirements were considered in order to complete a task? Are you sure you didn’t miss anything? It can be difficult to keep every team member on the same page with the complex and ever-evolving business processes that are necessary for fast-moving companies to stay ahead of the competition.
Baseline and Audit History – Rational DOORS Next Generation: As a new project is started and progresses forward many of requirements you define and capture will change, be added to, or sometimes removed through the course of development. Rational DOORS Next Generation provides the functionality to help track requirements information change so that you can understand what has taken place throughout that process.
Reports – Rational DOORS Next Generation: The requirement metrics provide an analytics view of the data. They represent processed data and are based on the operational data available from the repository, which is loaded into the data warehouse and then aggregated into measures based on some interpretation. Measures can be counts or sums of numeric data, such as the sum of all weight points of test case execution records. They allow the user to evaluate, report on and to improve the project performance.
Capture Administration – Rational DOORS Next Generation: IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation shares administration services with all applications that are on the same Jazz Team Server. Those applications provide capabilities for the activities that span a project’s lifecycle, such as quality management and change and configuration management. Because administration services are shared with the applications on one Jazz Team Server, teams save time and effort. The shared administration services include services for projects areas, users, and licensing.
Traceability – Rational DOORS Next Generation: Capturing your stakeholder and user requirements in Rational DOORS Next Generation is only the first step in realizing your project. As your project progresses and evolves, these initial requirements give rise to other requirements which elaborate, satisfy, and verify them. The result is a web of interdependent artifacts and relationships which represent the nature of the dependencies between these artifacts. Navigating and understanding this web of information is critical to the success of your project.

Blockchain technology: the next generation of the internet - On Tuesday afternoon, Don Tapscott, author, consultant and entrepreneur, took us through the transformative power of blockchain technology, and its huge potential for change. Here’s what he had to say: "I wrote a book in 1981 arguing that everyone was going to use this vast network of networks, and that computers would become tools for the communication of information. It didn’t sell that well – it was a study in bad timing – but we were right. I’m here to tell you that computers are about to become something else again. We are getting a second era of the internet – the Internet of Value. The fourth industrial revolution is infusing technology through every organization; through every business process. Through our economy, through our business world, even through our bodies. All of these technologies that will participate in the transformation of businesses need a commercial and transactional platform. And that is crypto-currencies – blockchain." [Read more...]

InterConnect keynote: Harriet Green - When hype gave way to reality... When I first started running the IoT business for IBM, I spent a lot of time promoting the technology itself; persuading people of the potential of IoT with impressive statistics: 20 billion connected devices by 2020; $11 trillion in economic value by 2025. But I don’t do any of that anymore, because the Internet of Things is no longer a story of future growth. It’s a story about the here and now, and the outcomes speak for themselves. In the last eight months, IBM has seen its number of IoT clients increase from 4,000 to 6,000, and each has a compelling story to tell. Stories about overcoming business challenges, digital transformation, and, perhaps most importantly, stories about outcomes. [Read more....]
