Picking Up the Pace in Lease Management – Utilizing the Power of the IBM TRIRIGA RE Transaction Plan

When first implementing the IBM TRIRIGA IWMS system, you crawl, over time you begin to walk, and eventually you pick up the pace and run.  There is power in the RE Transaction Plan.  Creating lease/buy scenarios within a Transaction Plan provides confidence that a leasing recommendation or decision is based on weighted requirement criteria, detailed financial data and side-by-side comparison.  Power comes from seeing expected growth and intended purpose that can be tracked in the transaction plan - providing comparable and relevant financial summaries.  When a winning scenario is selected, data and financial information flows directly into a Lease Abstract or Owned Property Fee Agreement.  IBM TRIRIGA Real Estate maintains rejected scenarios so they can be reconsidered or reused at a future date.  Transamerica and their IBM Partner BRG, re-implemented the Real Estate Module back to out-of-box and fully implemented the RE Transaction Plan to create documented and auditable prospective leasing transactions and financial summaries.


Configuration efforts to support cultural resource management

The integration of historic property data into TRIRIGA, including reports and eligibility determinations,  was identified by CBP leadership as a priority project.  The Cultural Resources in TRIRIGA (CRIT) effort was designed to address how CBP manages its real property historic resources.  The functionality complies with Section 110 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) requirements and DHS Directive 0017-01, which requires agencies to actively manage historic properties and data in an auditable format.

CRIT has enabled CBP to provide a much more accurate picture of the historic properties within its portfolio.  At the property level, CRIT contains an overview of all historic resource information available on a given property.  CBP Project Managers and Environmental Specialists are able to quickly identify potential planning issues in the early stages of a project. There are potential cost and time savings for the agency when existing survey data or determinations are identified for a property.  This has led to an increase in CBP’s ability to effectively and efficiently deliver real property solutions to CBP agents and facility managers.

US Department of the Treasury, Bureau of Engraving and Printing Expand Federal Real Property Profile (FRPP) Reporting with IBM TRIRIGA

Executive Order (EO) 13327 was created to promote efficient and economical use of the Federal Government’s real property assets. Federal Real Property Profile (FRPP) reporting is required by all Federal Agencies. A reporting database containing the FRPP data elements is maintained by the Federal Government and the General Services Administration (GSA) evaluates agencies on how well they report these data elements. Frustrating this effort is that these data elements are frequently changing and this makes it increasingly difficult for the agencies to keep up.


TRIRIGA across the Enterprise: A Multi-Implementation Experience (The TRIRIGA Trifecta)

Wayne County Airport Authority (the Authority) is moving from a highly manual, tower focused set of tools to a more Enterprise System based technology set. One key element of the enterprise strategy is the implementation of two (2) TRIRIGA modules, Capital Projects Management, and Real Estate Management, for three (3) very different departments/projects; Construction & Alteration Permits, Real Estate, and Facilities Design & Construction. Each TRIRIGA project included a detailed business process review, adaptation of process to incorporate best practices, and a specific level of system enhancement to meet Authority specific requirements. Several departments also required integration with other systems or information sources.  Over the course of nearly 2 years, we have accomplished quite a bit, and learned a bit more. Some of the lessons applied to each department, while others related to gaining support and process integration across departments. We will review major successes, interesting technical solutions, challenges overcome, and discuss those issues we are still struggling to overcome.

An Internet of Things (IoT) Approach to Real Estate and Facilities Management

For the last few years, RESO has used the IBM TRIRIGA Energy Management Module (TREES) to gain a new level of visibility into what’s going on in our buildings. TREES is a higher level of software integrated with our building management system (BMS) and has been deployed at our highest energy consuming buildings. To date, our focus has been on generating alerts that help us predict and avoid data center failures or tell us where there are opportunities to save energy. These alerts often result in smarter ways to conduct equipment maintenance as well. The goal has been to optimize assets, lower costs, and identify comfort issues long before employees feel the impact.  During this session, I will discuss how we continue to expand our focus on optimizing assets and efficiency, we are now expanding our coverage of building performance metrics. We are doing this in conjunction with our Watson ecosystem partners, deployment of sensor technology and IoT data integration technologies.


With IoT sensors, we are able to monitor building conditions at the point of use. We are also able to measure how our space is being utilized to inform better ways to conduct maintenance and improve upon future space designs. Our goal is to enrich the employee experience in our buildings making them more comfortable, aesthetically pleasing and technologically advanced.


FedEx Creates Single Global Database for Lease Accounting Compliance

In 2010, FedEx was looking for a consolidated system to manage its lease accounting in anticipation of the changes that the FASB and IASB were discussing. The biggest challenge was that separate Operating Companies (“OpCos”) were using different systems, and no two utilized the same processes. The systems were both commercially available and internally developed. FedEx chose TRIRIGA to be its system of record for global lease accounting, but still had a big challenge: Data.   The lease implementation project began in 2013, using a serial approach to integrating each of the OpCos. The presentation will explain how FedEx made the choices it did, and share best practices for creating a centralized global lease accounting system in TRIRIGA.


IBM Tririga and GIS at Smithsonian

Smithsonian has a ten year history of GIS integration with Tririga.  The integration began with Autodesk MapGuide and transitioned to Esri ArcGIS Server.  Today Smithsonian has an intuitive GIS application known as SI Explorer that provides maps, floorplans and Tririga data to all network account holders.  Our initial GIS focus “inside the walls” was very atypical.  SI Explorer continues to grow and in 2016 we have increased the “outside the walls” scope to include underground utilities.  This presentation will provide background on Smithsonian’s GIS integration including technology, design approach, lessons learned and future plans.  A functional demonstration of SI Explorer will be provided.

Collection Space Management at Smithsonian

Smithsonian is a unique organization and it is no surprise that the approach to space management is unique.  This presentation will discuss our implementation of Tririga to assess and manage space specifically as it relates to Smithsonian’s Collections.  Smithsonian has assesses each space that contains the 130 million objects in our Collections.  These assessments determine the suitability of the space to host the specific collection.  The output of this exercise is a profile of space conditions and recommendations facility investments. 


TRIRIGA Analytics – Waking the sleeping tiger

Getting the Most Out of TRIRIGA through Training Initiatives

Saint Paul Public Schools (SPPS) leverages a two-tiered training model to promote end-user proficiency and high application availability. Internal, customized end-user training focuses on immediate requirements with special attention given to optimizing personal experiences within TRIRIGA. Internal user groups identify potential initiatives, which are then vetted to discern the most impactful topics for the end-user. These topics are then distilled into a collection of hand-outs, video vignettes, and in-class instruction to introduce and reinforce concepts. The results include faster user adoption, increased data fidelity, and drastic reductions in calls to the helpdesk.   SPPS utilizes TRIRIGA for portfolio management, service request management, facility assessment, project management, and other customized applications. Through training and continuing education the District continues to identify new initiatives at a rapid pace.

Rethinking Processes to Adapt to the New Lease Accounting Changes

Jackson Cross Partners, LLC (“JCP”) has been assisting corporate clients in preparing for the new lease accounting standards, published by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) in December, 2015 as IAS 17, and by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) in February 2016 as ASC 842.   Most companies have understandably focused on the effort to comply with the new changes in time for the initial application date. What has been less discussed is the internal processes and procedures that will be affected. Now that virtually all leases are going on the Balance Sheet, auditors and investors will more closely scrutinize those arrangements. Auditability and predictability will be key. Companies will need to evaluate the terms of their standard leases, decisions about likely term, executory authority, and preferred rent structures.  Please join JCP as they discuss how procedures might change for Real Estate, Finance, Accounting, Operations, Legal, IT, and financial reporting.


Data migration made easy using Deloitte’s Data Migration Helper

Data migration is one of the most common challenges that users of TRIRIGA face because migrating invalid data can severely impede a company’s ability to successfully use TRIRIGA. Data migration can be particularly challenging for large companies that have multiple markets or geographies, each with their own lease database and complexities.   In this session, Jean Chick will discuss and demo the Deloitte Data Migration Helper that was developed for a global retailer and has helped this company significantly increase the accuracy and speed of data migration from multiple disparate systems into one TRIRIGA environment.

Jean will demo how the Helper integrates with Deloitte’s LeasePoint product which provides SaaS lease accounting and portfolio management based on TRIRIGA but with a new user interface and added functionality on top of base TRIRIGA
