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 smarter planet initiatives is the observation and processing of sensor data to extract insights about the physical world. In the conclusion to this series, this article looks at how IBM® WebSphere® Sensor Events, along with other business process management (BPM) software products can be used to develop smarter planet solutions that leverage sensor event processing. Commonalities of smarter planet initiatives are highlighted, specifically around the key concepts of instrumented, interconnected and intelligent. You will see how sensor data collection, interpretation, and response are at the core of many of these initiatives, and how WebSphere Sensor Events, often along with WebSphere Business Events, provides the basis for event solutions.
