Volume Machine-generated data is produced in much larger quantities. For instance, a single jet engine can generate 10TB of data in 30 minutes. With more airline flights per day, the daily volume of just this single data source runs into the Petabytes. Smart meters and heavy industrial equipment like oil refineries and drilling rigs generate similar data volumes, compounding the problem Twitter produces 175 million tweets per dayVelocity Social media data streams – produce a large influx of opinions and relationships valuable to customer relationship management. Even at 140 characters per tweet, the high velocity (or frequency) of Twitter data ensures large volumes (over 8 TB per day) Wal-Mart is logging one million transactions per hourVariety Traditional data formats tend to be relatively well described and change slowly. As new services are added, new sensors deployed, or new marketing campaigns executed, new data types are needed to capture the resultant informationFacebook creates over 30 billion pieces of content ranging from web links, news, blogs, photos etc.Value The economic value of different data varies significantly. Typically there is good information hidden amongst a larger body of non-traditional data; the challenge is identifying what is valuable and then transforming and extracting that data for analysis.
The smart card is a unified identity card with multiple applications which helps to create a technology-facilitated environmentPersonal intrusion can be kept to a minimum while providing increased security. Increase customer satisfaction, reduction of cash and change theftsOffers increased security by using a single card system rather than using several cards across a development.Future personalized services can be delivered depending on the identity and preferences stored by the smart card.The ownership of Smart Card functionality lies with the security team who owns and manages the access control system.This team then shares configuration responsibility with the facilities management system upon configuration to gain access to various systems such as elevators, HVAC, power, lighting and other amenities in the building.
What will it take to create these cities/communities… new visionary leadership & the creation of New Business Models.Imagine the huge opportunity for new services. Technology will be the key enabler.Only 2% of infrastructure spend – 2% of a trillion dollars is spent on technology – even an increase of 1%? To enable this we should together drive:Visionary leadership is key – finding people with similar mindsets, passion and vision for the future…that’s really key.Global open standards – this is what we do! We did it 25 years ago with the internet…bringing together different protocols and making them all work together. That’s not something just anyone can do.Smart regulation – we need leaders to step up….LEED certification….give benefits to people who implementPublic private partnerships – this has been key to our success so far.And a New ecosystem – working with developers, people like Schneider ElectricBut it takes all five of these factors…without one, it changes completely.
