IBM Unveils New Technology to Address the Internet of Things
IBM has introduced a new appliance designed to help organizations to communicate with millions of mobile devices and sensors around the world. The new offering

sensors  of mobile devices and sensors around the world. The new offering is called IBM MessageSight and will be able to communicate with and gather information from devices varying from mobile phones and tablets to automobiles to house appliances. IBM MessageInsight is built using IBM’s Message Queuing Telemetry Transport Technology (MQTT), which enables it to process large volumes of events in near real time and to consolidate the information in a single repository for its analysis. Marie Wieck, general Read More

Splunk@aims to make machine data accessible, usable, and valuable to everyone by offering operational intelligence. Machine data is one of the fastest growing

sensors  devices, and all the sensors and RFID assets that produce data. By monitoring and analyzing everything from customer clickstreams and transactions to network activity and call records, Splunk turns machine data into valuable insights. Read More
PTC Embarks on Internet of Things Journey via ThingWorx Acquisition
PTC ended 2013 by announcing it had acquired ThingWorx, creators of a platform for building and running applications for the Internet of Things (IoT), for

sensors  as “networks of low-cost sensors and actuators for data collection, monitoring, decision making, and process optimization.” The acquisition is expected to add more than $10 million (USD) of revenue over the next 12 months for PTC, with $5–7 million (USD) of revenue in fiscal 2014.   The IoT Allure This IoT concept of smart and connected products has been a pervasive theme of late, discussed at many enterprise software conferences in 2013, including Dreamforce 2013 , where it was renamed the Read More
Situational Intelligence: Not Just Another Fancy Term
Recently, Space-Time Insight released Version 4 of what they call the Space-Time Insight Situational Intelligence Suite. For the company, this is not just a

A weather report can be correlated with internal data to improve preventive measures such as decisions regarding which assets to protect and which part of the population will be affected the most. A combination of information sourced from weather reports, sensors, and other areas can help to establish preventive and corrective priorities for all assets, making them more cost effective, Read More
PTC Live Global 2013: All About Design for “Servitization” —Part One
This was my third time attending the PTC Live Global (formerly PlanetPTC Live) conference, and by now I can say with some conviction that, compared to its large

sensors  robots that definitely have sensors and software. On the down side, embedded software in products makes them vulnerable in terms of security, privacy, viruses, bugs, etc., which becomes yet another issue to worry about. This trend forces interdisciplinary teams, cross-functional product development, and systems engineering. For example, the Tier 1 automotive supplier Continental reportedly now has more software developers than mechanical engineers. PLM products for sophisticated manufacturers now need to Read More
Building a Business Case for Enterprise Spyware Protection
It is sometimes difficult to quantify the scope of spyware problems within corporate environments. The least noticeable effect of spyware is to slow network and desktop processing by tiny increments. But even the slightest slowdown, multiplied across the enterprise, adds up to a serious bottom line impact in decreased automated processing and worker productivity.

sensors  the network traffi c sensors in fi rewalls and anti-virus software may not alert the network administrator in time to stop the spyware s activities. And even if the alert is timely, the proper extrication of malware from PC or server operating systems can be time-consuming in order to be thorough and to avoid damage to the systems to which it has become bound. A better solution identifies malware before it installs itself, quarantines it, and then enables the administrator to remove it if investigation Read More
Enterprise Resource Planning Giants Eye the Shop Floor
Because production systems on the shop floor are typically not synchronized and integrated with the planning ones, there is a lack of timely and accurate information that results in disconnected business processes.

sensors   because all the physical sensors are already in place, so that users should simply have to leverage the potentially vital data. Summary of Manufacturing Needs The synchronization of inventories and production across a supply network requires knowledge of the current status of events, such as what is happening at this moment, what is expected, and so on. It is insufficient to have a report on what happened last week or even yesterday. To be truly in sync requires current knowledge from the plant or Read More
How One Distributor Played Wal-Mart's Distribution Game-And Won
As a supplier to Wal-Mart, appliance manufacturer Haier America was required to implement a radio frequency identification (RFID) tagging system. To satisfy this requirement and to keep costs to a minimum, Haier needed a solution that would seamlessly integrate with its current enterprise resource planning (ERP) application. That’s why it turned to a custom-designed modification package. But was it enough for Wal-Mart?

Identix Leads Biometric Authentication
Perhaps the most exciting product released at last Comdex, was the Identix DFR-300 Fingerprint Scanner. Implemented in Compaq, Dell, and Toshiba laptops, the hardware fingerprint scanners are packaged with BioLogon™ for Windows 2000™ and features biometric identification and authentication, BIOS level security, single sign-on and multi-factor security.

sensors  technology, capable of producing sensors even smaller than Identix DFR300, may eclipse optical technology if higher material costs and electro magnetic discharge (EMD) interference can be resolved for capacitive sensors. In light of this potential competition, Identix is already aligned with silicon technology through its relationship with Infineon, under which Infineon uses BioLogon for enterprise authentication using its silicon chip sensors. For Identix to succeed with itrust , the company will need c Read More
Voting Technology: An Evaluation of Requirements and Solutions
The issues created by the use of punch card ballots, an obsolete technology, during the recent US Presidential election are similar to the ones that businesses confront every day when dealing with technological change. It is therefore instructive to examine voting technology issues in the way that most businesses would approach an important information technology decision.

sensors  light-emitting diodes (LED) and sensors that activate only when light passes through a card. Because it is electronic rather than mechanical, this technology has proven highly reliable over the years. By far the greatest opportunity for machine tabulation error occurs before punch card ballots are actually fed into the reader. On Election Day, workers at each polling place lock the ballots in boxes and ship them to a central data processing facility. No matter what precautions are taken, security and Read More
SAP for the Chemicals Industry: Challenges and User Recommendations
Using the SAP ERP Chemicals Packaged Solution may represent a significant advantage—but only if SAP is the right enterprise resource planning system for the prospective user company, and if the prepackaged business processes are a suitable fit.
