  • 6. INSTRUMENTED Our world is becoming We now have the ability to measure, sense and see the exact condition of everything. INTERCONNECTED Our world is becoming People, systems, and objects can communicate and interact with each other in entirely new ways. INTELLIGENT Virtually all things, processes and ways of working are becoming We can respond to changes quickly and accurately, and get better results by predicting and optimizing for future events. 3
  • 7. Instrumented …every location, state, temperature, condition will become a source of valuable insight 4
  • 8. Instrumented …every location, state, temperature, condition will become a source of valuable insight In 2001, there were 60 million transistors for every human on the planet… by 2010 there will be 1 billion transistors per human In 2005 there were 1.3 billion RFID tags in circulation…… by 2010 there will be 30 billion 4
  • 9. Interconnected …systems working together in new ways 5
  • 10. Interconnected …systems working together in new ways Worldwide mobile telephone subscriptions reached 3.3 billion in 2007 An estimated 2 billion people will be on the Web by 2011 Daily financial market messages growing from 5 billion in 2006, to 130 billion+ per day in 2010 Our personal information footprints will grow 16 times between now and 2020 5
  • 11. Intelligent …every insight results in action that creates new value 6
  • 12. Intelligent …every insight results in action that creates new value We’ve thought about IT as the world of data centers, software, PCs, routers, bandwidth. We’ve thought about infrastructure as the world of buildings, factories, hospitals, roads, pipelines. Those worlds are converging. The world can become smarter. We’re building it with our clients. 6
  • 13. Of all the potential electricity available in an energy source, only 30 percent reaches consumers …an estimated 170 billion kilowatts are wasted by consumers each year due to insufficient power usage information 7
  • 14. Intelligent Utility Network Efficient energy transmission & distribution networks reduce outages and improve grid management, reducing peakload energy requirements on the power grid by 15% to 50% IBM and utilities worldwide are proving that advanced meters (more than 45 million deployed worldwide) can enable homeowners to reduce energy costs up to 10%… …turning ordinary thermostats into day traders for energy, ensuring the best cost for the customer and better load balancing for the grid 8
  • 15. Forty-five percent of traffic on the busiest New York City streets is circling the block looking for parking …congested roadways cost $78 billion annually in the form of 4.2 billion wasted hours and 2.9 billion gallons of wasted gas 9
  • 16. Intelligent Transportation Systems In Stockholm, Sweden, a 7 month pilot on congestion charging saw traffic entering the city decrease by 25% and CO2 emissions decrease by 15%... …and public transportation usage increased by 40% Source: www.stockholmsforsoket.se 10
  • 17. In North America, up to 22 percent of total port volume is empty containers. The Port of Jersey has 100,000 empty containers sitting in storage – worth nearly $200 million. ….U.S. CPG companies and retailers lose $40 billion annually due to inefficient supply chains 11
  • 18. Intelligent Distribution Networks Chinese shipping and logistics giant COSCO utilized IBM’s Supply Chain Network Optimization Workbench (SNOW) to reduce the number of its distribution centers from 100 to 40... …thereby lowering logistics costs by 23% and reducing CO2 emissions by 15% while maintaining service levels for clients and incurring no additional costs. 12
  • 19. In the U.S., a typical carrot has traveled 1,600 miles, a potato 1,200 miles, a beef roast 600 miles …grocers and consumers throw away $48 billion worth of food every year 13
  • 20. Intelligent Shipping & Tracking Systems IBM and Matiq developed a first of a kind tracking solutions for food safety and traceability …Tagged over 3 million crates for tracking. Allows parent company, Nortura–a cooperative of 31,200 farmers in Norway to improve delivery locally produced sustainable meats and eggs 14
  • 21. By 2020 1.3 billion people won’t have access to safe drinking water… Industry accounts for about 22% of freshwater usage today …the combined direct consumption of five food and beverage giants in 2007 was enough to serve the daily basic water needs of everyone on the planet 15
  • 22. Intelligent and Advanced Water Management IBM has analyzed the chip making process in Burlington Vermont using IBM Green SigmaTM and by modifying one critical step in the process is saving 20 million gallons of water, 15,000 gallons of chemicals, and 1,550,000 kilowatts of electricity annually… … achieving $3M in annual savings and increasing manufacturing production over 30% 16
  • 23. Buildings use 40% of primary energy consumed globally …30% of energy consumed by commercial buildings is wasted 17
  • 24. Intelligent Buildings Enhancing existing buildings to be more energy efficient typically reduces total energy consumption by 20-50%... …while new “green” buildings have the IBM Example potential to reduce energy consumption by 80% or more. 18
  • 25. Information Technology energy use is growing 12 times the overall demand. Data Centers alone consumed 180B kilowatts in 2007 and will double in the next 2 to 4 yrs …while every 100 units of energy production drives only 3 units of productive computing on average 19
  • 26. Intelligent IT IBM clients have seen dramatic results: average achievable energy savings greater than 40%; average payback of <2 years in Data Center Energy Efficiency assessments; asset utilization rates increasing 2x-4x; deferral of massive capital investments in new datacenter builds… IBM Example …and $1 energy savings drives another $6-8 operational savings on average 20
  • 27. Intelligent IT vs. Other Abatement Options …or you could remove 3,505,401 cars and light trucks from company fleets. …or you could plant 502,440,757 tree 20% efficiency seedlings and grow them for 10 years. What if all data improvement centers were …or you could manage and preserve could save 36 were more billion kwh or 16,329,325 acres of pine forest per year. 22m tons of efficient? CO2 ..or you could recycle 6,597,707 tons of company waste instead of sending to landfills. Data source: http://www.usctcgateway.net/tool/ 21
