The facts here are startling – inefficiency is prolific – clearly, progress is needed: - In distributed computing environments, up to 85% of computing capacity sits idle. Consumer product and retail industries lose about $40 billion annually, or 3.5 percent of their sales, due to supply chain inefficiencies. 70% on average is spent on maintaining current IT infrastructures versus adding new capabilities. Explosion of information: 54% growth in storage shipments every year 33% of consumers notified of a security breach will terminate their relationship with the company they perceive as responsible. Transition Line: Clearly this kind of inefficiency can’t continue
Many aspects of modern business have been industrialized to gain efficiencies and bring better more affordable products and services to the end customer. Local calls were made through human “Operators” well into the 1950’s. In many parts of the country you could only make long distance calls through an Operator well into the 1970’s. Automation was required in order to be able to keep up with increasing call volumes. The standardization of the Ford assembly line was later improved with the Toyota Production System and the implementation of new technologies, e.g. robotics. To be able to deliver the service provided by ATMs, tremendous breakthroughs in standardization were required – to enable you to conduct transactions from any machine, without regard to whether you have an account with the owner of the machine. Each industry drove advances in technology based systems and standardization to deliver the services customers required. Transition line: The same needs to happen with highly manual and repetitive processes in the datacenter..
Today’s data center typically has many siloed processes and very little automation to aid the IT worker. Many task require highly skilled workers to collect siloed data and put the pieces together in order to do their job. Deploying new services can require integrating hardware and software, collecting system performance data, configuration data, manual approval process and understanding complex product install procedures. This can result in very slow deliver of service to customers. With an industrialized data center based on a service management system and leading edge hardware, silos are integrated and information is made available in an easy to consume format across systems. Clients can request the services they need through an self service portal that drives automated processes which greatly reduce the time required to make services available. Automation is used extensively so that highly skilled workers can be leveraged across many tasks to drive down labor costs and drive up productivity. Transition line: How can you start to deliver services using this industrialized approach without the headaches of integration?
The proliferation of sensors, digital communications and other forms of digital data collection, along with advances in the storage and management of such data has led to a projected tenfold growth in digital data between 2007 and 2011. All of this data has the potential to provide enterprise with valuable insights for running their businesses more effectively and efficiently. Now, businesses analysts need to adapt from an environment in which the challenge was in gaining insights from limited data to one in which the challenge is in managing and extracting useful information from massive data sets. As one can imagine, finding the relevant data, and quickly, amid the 'mountain' of available data can be like finding a needle in a haystack. Moreover, of the growth in digital data, approximately 80% of it is expected to comprise semi-structured and unstructured data (i.e., email, blogs, medical images, videos, audio files, pictures). With unstructured data, considerable effort is required to 'understand' the data, even before any further analysis can be performed to intelligently influence decision making. Semantics The number of semantically tagged documents and data sets is growing, as a result of five developments: “ Linked Data” guidelines, published in 2006, make it easier to share data on the web. The graph in the upper left represents the output of the Linking Open Data community project, which has the goal of making large numbers of open data sets more available by complying with the Linked Data guidelines. RDF (Resource Description Framework) triples are a key component of the Linked Data guidelines. Technologies to convert many legacy sources, especially of relational data, into RDF triples, became available as open source in 2006 (and IBM Research has improved versions of these) Technologies are appearing that can automatically find associations between subjects and objects from one “data graph” with subjects and objects in other “data graphs” Several important reference information suppliers, most notably Thomson Reuters, entered into this space (through their OpenCalais effort). Several efforts have developed technology to mine the essential information about people, places, materials, governments, businesses, works of literature and so on from Wikipedia, into a semantically tagged form (notably DBPedia and Freebase), so that as Wikipedia extends to cover more of the worlds knowledge, more of that becomes part of the Web of semantic data. Net: Both the number of facts, and the rich interconnecting of different classes of facts, have been growing at an accelerating rate. Example Use: In BlueJ! grand challenge, linked data (DBpedia, IMDb, Freebase etc) is used as important structured information source to improve the accuracy of question answering in additional to unstructured information. Acronyms: RDF – Resource Description Framework (W3C Standard) FOAF – Friend of a Friend – the RDF application for describing people and other people they know DBLP – Digital Bibliography and Library Project – bibliographic information on more than 1 million computer science research publications SIOC – Semantically Interlinked Online Communities DOAP – Description of a Project; DOAPSpace – a repository of open source projects RIESE - R DFizing and I nterlinking the E uro S tat Data Set E ffort OpenGuides – Information about leading cities of the world, the kind of information that would appear in a guidebook, produced by the community through a public Wiki. Jamendo – an online music community, including a large quantity of music licensed under various Creative Commons license terms. www.garlik.com – an online identity monitoring service Sindice.com – web service providing a directory/index of all Linked Open Data and Microformat data on the Web
