EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

IBM acquired the TRIRIGA Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS) in 2011 to combine it with IBM’s existing Maximo Enterprise Asset Management system as part of its ‘Smarter Buildings’ initiative. Since then, the prominent development in building technology has been the concept of the Internet of Things. This report helps Chief Information Officers, Heads of Energy and Facilities Directors to understand how IBM will evolve its solution to use the growing ecosystem of building data for business benefits. Verdantix analysis finds IBM’s shift from energy management to building lifecycle management, while innovative, will require significant client engagement to develop appropriate business cases for broad adoption.
