(EC 2012)
0 What is Awareness?0 It is primarily a state of mind and, as such, lies on a different plane of, andcannot be directly compared with, ICT solutions0 For a winning enterprise Awareness implies a clear understanding of thebusiness and operating context, available resources, competitors, ...0 Thus Awareness needs ICT solutions to be achieved0 Awareness ICT support0 Acquisition of factual data: from sensors, smart objects, people andorganizations0 Aggregate, enrich, share, making sense of it: Big Data analytics, semanticanalysis and interpretation, statistics and simulation, ...0 Support to: collective intelligence, group decision making, strategic thinking, ...0 Awareness Tiers0 From FACTS to DECISIONS to VALUE PRODUCTION: a 3 Tiers Architecture0 Lower Tier: Data Acquisition (e.g., from Internet of People and Thinigs, from DataClouds, from Sensors Networks)0 Aggregation Tier: derive valuable information / knowledge (e.g., with data analytics,semantic search, statistical analysis, collective intelligence, ...)0 Strategic Tier: support to human experts / managers for strategy building, decisionmaking, ...FInES Cluster Meeting, May 6th, 2013 3
