New IBM Software Uses Sensor Data to Trigger Automated Business Processes

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

IBM is introducing software that extracts actionable business information from the millions of interconnected sensors that link items in the physical world.

Using WebSphere Sensor Events, massive volumes of sensor data can be gathered and analyzed to provide clients with the business visibility needed to quickly respond to changing market conditions. The software is one of many IBM technologies bringing a new level of intelligence to the way in which people, businesses, organizations, governments, and systems interact.

Sensors are part of our everyday lives. They are used in objects such as lights that dim and brighten depending on the level of darkness and in thermometers, which react to changes in temperature. Today, many kinds of sensors are in use to monitor and manage water flow rates, highway traffic, seismic activity, air quality, the flow of energy across power grids, and much more. In particular, the use of Radio Frequency Identification sensors is growing for the purpose of item tracking and authentication. By 2010, approximately 6 billion of these tags will be in circulation.
