Smarter Planet™ initiatives are playing a major role in how we recognize where technology is shaping our interactions with the world around us. Common to many of these initiatives is the observation and processing of sensor data to extract insights about the physical world. This is the first in a series of articles that shows how IBM® WebSphere® Sensor Events, IBM WebSphere Business Events, and other enterprise products can be used to develop Smarter Planet solutions that leverage sensor event processing. Part 1 discusses the commonalities of Smarter Planet initiatives, shows how sensor data collection, interpretation, and response are at the core of many of these initiatives, and explains how this all plays into the "instrumented, intelligent, and interconnect" theme. This content is part of the IBM WebSphere Developer Technical Journal.
