  • Bottom line The underlying technology of sensors and wireless embedded devices is an important evolution, but is not in itself compelling. Asset intelligence is the application of those technical advancements to produce real business value. It is closely related to the thrust of the 2010 Technology Trend on Information Automation – the shift from hindsight to insight to foresight. Asset intelligence breaks-down the paradigm of IT as “collect, aggregate, then decide” to a more real-time “sense, decide, and act.” It empowers more of a corporation’s balance sheet as potential inputs to process and information automation – at ground zero of business operations. And ultimately, it shifts IT from a hypothetical model of the business to an active participant – allowing decisions to be made and insight to be gathered across the value chain. JRT: this is Deloitte’s own definition, the “bottom line” at the end of their report on Asset Intelligence I ended up putting the “collect, aggregate, decide vs “sense, decide, act” on to the next slide for now

    1. 1. Jason Turner and Juliann Davidson
    2. 2. <ul><li>Asset Intelligence is an IT strategy that relies on using the proliferation of network-enabled devices to gather massive amounts of data, and, ideally, act on that data autonomously </li></ul><ul><li>What is an “asset” in Asset Intelligence? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Any object capable of sending an important signal to the user) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Old IT Systems: “Collect, Aggregate, Decide” </li></ul><ul><li>AI Systems: “Sense, Decide, Act” </li></ul>
    3. 3. <ul><li>Proliferation of sensors: 1 trillion devices will soon be hooked up to internet infrastructure </li></ul><ul><li>Cost of Sensing devices has decreased dramatically </li></ul><ul><li>Networking speeds significantly increased. </li></ul><ul><li>Computational Power has increased tremendously </li></ul><ul><li>Increased understanding of decision networks and artificial intelligence </li></ul>
    4. 4. <ul><li>Moore’s Law has been pretty accurate </li></ul><ul><li>Broadband </li></ul><ul><li>Availability </li></ul><ul><li>Wireless Access </li></ul><ul><li>Hotspots </li></ul><ul><li>4G Networks </li></ul>
    5. 5. <ul><li>1 trillion projected soon, in a variety of different formats. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>NFC presentation gives us an idea of widespread sensing and signal reading capability </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Business Week and MIT Enterprise Tech Review identified “The Sensor Revolution” and “Brain-Wireless Sensor Networks” as big upcoming techs </li></ul><ul><li>“ Sensor Dust”, clouds or “motes” of RFID enabled remote sensing capability </li></ul><ul><li>Mandates for RFID labeling products within a supply chain </li></ul>
    6. 7. <ul><li>Historically, and even recently, sensor networks collect information which is parsed by a human, not acted on automatically </li></ul><ul><li>Significant advances in decision-making abilities of computer programs make more complex actions automated </li></ul><ul><li>Examples include </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Robotic or automated movement of material </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Automation of Purchase orders </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Supply chain command, control, and optimization </li></ul></ul>
    7. 8. <ul><li>Asset Intelligence seeks to add value by increasing detection and automated action thus decreasing costs in terms of response time, human error, and staff requirements </li></ul><ul><li>Deloitte provides a wealth of examples where an integrated approach to AI provides value: </li></ul><ul><li>Zero Latency Maintenance Scheduling </li></ul><ul><li>Inventory/Shrink Tracking </li></ul><ul><li>Full transparency on equipment use </li></ul><ul><li>Enterprise-Wide Cost Analysis </li></ul>
    8. 10. <ul><li>InControl offers an asset intelligence service to automatically detect, inventory, and track IT assets </li></ul><ul><li>Integrates detection, updating </li></ul><ul><li>Usage profiles, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Provides Business </li></ul><ul><li>Intelligence Metrics </li></ul><ul><li>Using automated </li></ul><ul><li>data correlation </li></ul>
