IBM TRIRIGA - Under the Hood - from servers and data storage to individual components and workflow
$125 + processing fees (6 hours) ,  Limit 25 students
Friday, Oct. 28, 2016, 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

Purpose:  Class attendees will get a hands-on chance to understand how TRIRIGA works Under the Hood. The session will not only look under the hood but also show you the art of the possible using TRIRIGA. The session begins by outlining the servers necessary to keep the application running smoothly, moves to a comprehensive look at data storage, summarizes the specific components of TRIRIGA, and helps you understand business logic and workflows.  Throughout this training you will be working hands-on with developer tools in the application to solidify your knowledge and understanding of TRIRIGA.  After lunch - time will be spent understanding security and security groups, portals, and discussing when they should be and how the TRIRIGA platform and application are upgraded. Finally, we will spend time exploring integrations, reports, and performance issues.

Questions are encouraged and time has been built in the day to answer them. Can you believe you can be IBM TRIRIGA smarter in just six hours (and that includes lunch)?!  It’s true!  We guarantee you will walk away with a new deeper understanding of your IBM TRIRIGA implementation.  

Prerequisite:  Attendees should be familiar with the IBM TRIRIGA application.
