What was once central to corporations -- price, quality, and much of the left-brain, digitized analytical work associated with knowledge -- is fast being shipped off to lower-paid, highly trained Chinese and Indians, as well as Hungarians, Czechs, and Russians. Increasingly, the new core competence is creativity -- the right-brain stuff that smart companies are now harnessing to generate top-line growth. The game is changing. It isn't just about math and science anymore. It's about creativity, imagination, and, above all, innovation.

Communications companies are facing demands to respond quickly to these types of rapid and diverse changes in usage conditions, and at the same time to provide stable services that effectively utilize network resources. User adaptability&quot; means that the user does not conform to the conditions of the network, but rather the network adapts instantaneously to the user environment and to service needs Security Many traditional networks are open core, capable of managing only a single risk level. Many are also location dependent, making it more difficult to apply appropriate levels of access for a multitude of players. Manual interventions are one approach but also one that can lead to human error. Cost Relying on manual configuration is expensive. What’s more, the increased complexity of today’s network – involving gateways, identity management systems, multiple exceptions, and workarounds – leads to service level problems. Plus, with no overall visibility, network management costs are much more likely to increase. Time Traditional networks are hard to scale and time consuming to configure and manage. This in turn generates time-to-market issues, competitive issues, and even lost business. http://www.onlab.ntt.co.jp/en/concept/concept.html http://h20219.www2.hp.com/services/cache/120579-0-0-225-121.html

Seamless Innovation Through the Power of Pervasive Computing Vijay Sankaran September 19, 2005
The world is becoming increasingly connected through technology By 2005 there will be 35 billion microcontrollers, 750 million smart sensors and 1.5 billion mobile information appliances Microprocessors Sensors Data Devices Networks Software Faster Energy Efficient Smarter Adaptive Smaller
In this rapidly changing environment, organizations must learn to be more adaptive Ford Motor Company must embrace pervasive computing in its quest to be more adaptive “ It is not the strongest of the species that survives nor the most intelligent, but the one that is most responsive to change.” –Charles Darwin Adaptive Enterprise Pervasive Computing Defragmentation
Innovation is the Only Method of Constant Improvement and Adaptation Innovation will Meet the OEM Challenges of Today Changing Customer Demand Stagnating Demand Atomization Quicker Time-to-Market Increased competition in value chain Overcapacity Sales Pressures Creation Pressures Methods for Success: <ul><li>Innovation allows a company to move faster than its competitors </li></ul><ul><li>Innovation creates better end products </li></ul><ul><li>Innovation delivers new solutions to old problems </li></ul><ul><li>Innovative companies attract and retain better employees </li></ul><ul><li>Innovation streamlines processes </li></ul>
Pervasive Solutions will Inject Adaptive Competencies into Ford Motor Company Pervasive computing allows the enterprise to continually view and improve itself Supply Chain: Increased control and flexibility through RFIDs Marketing: Context-awareness enables personalized advertisements Dealerships: Improves ability to tie experiences to brand image Service: Simplifies ownership and repair Internal Efficiencies: Smart offices and asset tracking Product: Exciting features, content and functionality Identity and Security Recombination Seed, Select & Amplify Shop Floor: Increased monitoring and intelligent correction Traffic System Integration: Ability to provide and receive traffic information Self-Organization Sense and Respond Continuous Experimentation

Enablers such as Internet2 help evolve the Pervasive Ecosystem Innovation is the process of turning feedback into new products and processes that improve the system Invention Reevaluation Diffusion A primary reason that evolution of life-forms or of technology speeds up is that it builds on its own increasing order, with ever more sophisticated means of recording and manipulating information. Innovations created by evolution encourage and enable faster evolution - Ray Kurzweil ( Kurzweil’s Law: The Law of Accelerating Returns ) New Perspective New Understanding of Needs New Products and Process
