  • We are experiencing the reality of global integration.The world is connected ECONOMICALLY.SOCIALLY.TECHNICALLY.A series of shocks:Plus rapidly evolving and ongoing significant trends:

    Climate changeEnergy geopoliticsGlobal supply chainsFinancial Crisis

    Changing demographicsEmpowered consumers and citizensImpact of technology

  • because intelligence is being infused into the way the world works. Our world is becoming INSTRUMENTED.Our world is becoming INTERCONNECTED.Virtually all things, processes and ways of working are becoming INTELLIGENT.

  • We now have the ability to measure, sense and monitor the condition of almost everything.

    There are more than 1 billion camera phones in existence.1 billion30 billion RFID tags are embedded into our world and across entire ecosystems.30 billionNearly 85% of new automobiles contain event data recorders.85%InstrumentedInterconnectedIntelligent

  • People, systems and objects can communicate and interact with each other in entirely new ways.There are an estimated 2 billion people on the internet.2 billionThere are an estimated 4 billion mobile phone subscribers worldwide.4 billionSoon, there will be 1 trillion connected devices in the world, constituting an internet of things.1 trillionInstrumentedInterconnectedIntelligent

  • We can now respond to changes quickly and accurately, and get better results by predicting and optimizing for future events.Every day, 15 petabytes of new information are being generated. This is 8x more than the information in all U.S. libraries.15 petabytesScientists are working to prevent influenza pandemics by modeling the viruses with a supercomputer that can operate at one petaflop, or one quadrillion operations per second.1 petaflopNew analytics enable high-resolution weather forecasts for areas as fine as 1 to 2 square kilometers.1 square kilometerInstrumentedInterconnectedIntelligent

  • ++=An opportunity to think and act in new ways.

  • Smarter transportation: An opportunity to improve the transit experience, reduce congestion and encourage a modal shift among usersIn one section of Los Angeles, looking for parking generated the equivalent of 38 trips around the world, burned 47,000 gallons of gas, emitted 730 tons of carbon dioxide in 1 year !Congested roadways cost $78 billion annually in the form of 4.2 billion lost hours and 2.9 billion gallons of wasted gas.

  • Smarter transportation: Influence traffic patterns and increase use of public transportationThe Innovation:A smart toll system uses cameras and sensors positioned throughout the city, along with a central computing system that processes vehicle identification data, to charge drivers varying rates depending on the time of day.The Benefits: Less traffic Lower emissions Increased city revenue Greater use of public transit Increased roadway safetyEmbedtransponders in vehicles.Recordlicense plate numbers, time of day and toll rates.Processdata and charge drivers accordingly.

  • Smarter transportation: Client transformationsStockholm implemented an intelligent toll system in the city center, which resulted in 20% less traffic, 40% lower emissions and 40,000 additional users of the public transportation system.To encourage citizens to use multiple modes of transportation and make it easier to align the cost of transit with its impact on the environment, the Singapore Land Transport Authority implemented fare management with smart cards that can be used to pay for buses, trains, taxis, road-use charging and parking.

  • Smarter energy and utilities : transformationsCenterPoint Energy in Houston is installing over 2 million smart meters and in some cases an energy controller for household devices. Homeowners will be able to access their usage information in home displays or on a personal website to make smarter consumption decisions.DONG Energy in Denmark installed monitoring devices across their distribution network. The increased insight into the grids performance will potentially lessen outage times by up to 50% and reduce maintenance investments by up to 90%.

  • Smarter healthcare: Client TransformationsA regional healthcare provider in France, created a regional information communication and management solution that improved the efficiency of patient care, reduced the risk of medical error and improved emergency response coordination.A public healthcare organization, Servicio Extremeo de Salud in Spain, has built a regionally integrated system that lets patients go to many health centers within the region, knowing a doctor there can have the patients complete, up-to-date records for faster and more accurate treatment.

  • Smarter education: Client transformationsNorth Carolina State University provides computing lab resources to schools and colleges throughout the state via a central service. Students, faculty and teachers are able to receive a customized image of the content and applications to meet their learning needs.A leading research group at a prestigious university in Massachusetts obtains the powerful computing environment it needs when it leverages the IBM-powered World Community Grid to perform its innovative energy research..
