Facilities Information Management

Facilities information Management consists of two parallel development tracks:

Background

In a continuing effort to deliver collaborative, integrated software solutions, in 2015, UC San Diego performed a campuswide gap analysis to determine the most efficient way to migrate existing data to a more robust facilities and space management system. This analysis revealed that a commercial off-the-shelf solution would provide the best option. UCOP’s July 2016 Integrated Capital Asset Management Program (ICAMP) report further supported use of a commercial solution with its system-wide current-state assessment of space management and facilities management.

Tririga Software

In 2016, the campus purchased a Software As A Service (SAAS) license for IBM Tririga, a full-suite, integrated software platform that focuses on facilities information management:

  • Facilities space management (in development)
  • Real estate (in development)
  • Capital projects
  • Facilities operations and maintenance
  • Environmental and energy management

Resource Management & Planning, Real Estate and Development and Information Technology Services are partnering with campus representatives to implement this software and leverage its benefits.

Next Steps

To minimize implementation delay and begin realizing the benefits of integrated facilities information more quickly, the campus will first share application functionality supporting real estate and facilities space management. Although both of these areas are being developed within the same software solution, they differ enough to be treated as separate sub-projects within the same facilities information management solution.
