What is Tridium Software Development?

The Tridium platform is an open framework which enables specialist software developers to build upon Niagara to produce bespoke products, applications, plug-ins and applications for businesses.

The platform facilitates accelerated development by providing the core infrastructure which enables developers to focus on the more important and complex challenges of developing to meet the requirements of the client and the premises. 

The Niagara Framework enables Forest Rock and our team of software developers to further develop the Internet of Things. With the platform having been established for more than 15 years, the track record shows the ability for organisations to improve customer satisfaction, offer new services and extend and improve the functionality of new and existing systems.

How do Forest Rock support your Tridium project?

Forest Rock are certified development partners for the Tridium Niagara platform and we support organisations with custom development projects. From the development of software and hardware solutions, we help you manage your premises more intelligently to reduce costs, increase productivity and save energy.


We develop software which supports the integration of various commercial building systems and processes which pulls the buildings data together to be viewed and analysed in software packages such as N4 Energy Manager and SkySpark. Such platforms can provide the data and guidance to make informed decisions to improve workforce productivity and comfort, to lower carbon emissions and ultimately lower costs.


Our team of professional software engineers and designers specialise in the development of protocol drivers, middleware applications, database and web service integration, embedded control system software and web applications.


We work with our clients to develop custom software solutions for the end-users, systems integrators and product manufacturers who wish to leverage the expertise of the Niagara Framework to improve their buildings automation and communication systems.
