IBM
IBM is an American multinational technology and consulting corporation that manufactures and markets computer hardware, middleware and software, and offers infrastructure, hosting and consulting services in areas ranging from mainframe computers to nanotechnology. IBM is intent on leading the development of a global data field.Year founded: 1911Revenue: $92.7 billion (2014)NYSE: IBM
IBM Watson (IBM)
Watson is a question answering computer system capable of answering questions posed in natural language, developed in IBM's DeepQA project by a research team led by principal investigator David Ferrucci. Watson was named after IBM's first CEO and industrialist Thomas J. Watson. The computer system was specifically developed to answer questions on the quiz show Jeopardy!. In 2011, Watson competed on Jeopardy! against former winners Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings. Watson received the first place prize of $1 million.Watson had access to 200 million pages of structured and unstructured content consuming four terabytes of disk storage including the full text of Wikipedia, but was not connected to the Internet during the game. For each clue, Watson's three most probable responses were displayed on the television screen. Watson consistently outperformed its human opponents on the game's signaling device, but had trouble in a few categories, notably those having short clues containing only a few words.In February 2013, IBM announced that Watson software system's first commercial application would be for utilization management decisions in lung cancer treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in conjunction with health insurance company WellPoint. IBM Watson's former business chief Manoj Saxena says that 90% of nurses in the field who use Watson now follow its guidance.

Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC)
Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC)
The Industrial Internet Consortium was founded in March 2014 to bring together the organizations and technologies necessary to accelerate the growth of the Industrial Internet by identifying, assembling and promoting best practices. Membership includes small and large technology innovators, vertical market leaders, researchers, universities and government organizations.Industrial Internet Consortium Working Groups coordinate and establish the priorities and enabling technologies of the Industrial Internet in order to accelerate market adoption and drive down the barriers to entry. There are currently 19 Working Groups and teams, broken into 7 broad areas: • Business Strategy and Solution Lifecycle• Legal• Marketing• Membership• Security• Technology• TestbedsThese groups are comprised of Industrial Internet Consortium member company representatives. Member companies can assign an unlimited number of individuals to the Working Groups, which follows the one vote, one company rule.Testbeds are a major focus and activity of the Industrial Internet Consortium and its members. The Testbed Working Group accelerates the creation of testbeds for the Industrial Internet and serves as the advisory body for testbed proposal activities for our members. It is the centralized group which collects testbed ideas from our member companies and provides the members with systematic yet flexible guidance for new testbed proposals. Our testbeds are where the innovation and opportunities of the Industrial Internet – new technologies, new applications, new products, new services, new processes – can be initiated, thought through, and rigorously tested to ascertain their usefulness and viability before coming to market. Learn more about testbeds in general and specific testbeds below.
Object Management Group (OMG)
Object Management Group (OMG)
Object Management Group (OMG) is international, open membership, not-for-profit technology standards consortium. OMG standards are driven by vendors, end-users, academic institutions and government agencies. OMG Task Forces develop enterprise integration standards for a wide range of technologies and an even wider range of industries. OMG’s modeling standards, including the Unified Modeling Language® (UML®) and Model Driven Architecture® (MDA®), enable powerful visual design, execution and maintenance of software and other processes. OMG also hosts organizations such as the user-driven information-sharing Cloud Standards Customer Council™ (CSCC™) and the IT industry software quality standardization group, the Consortium for IT Software Quality™ (CISQ™). OMG also manages the Industrial Internet Consortium, the public-private partnership that was formed in 2014 with AT&T, Cisco, GE, IBM, and Intel to forward the development, adoption, and innovation of the Industrial IoT.Our members include hundreds of organizations including software end-users in over two dozen vertical markets (from finance to healthcare and automotive to insurance) and virtually every large organization in the technology industry. OMG’s one organization- one vote policy ensures that every member organization- whether large or small- has an effective voice in our voting process. At OMG, specification adoption is the starting point rather than the end of the process. Our “No Shelf-ware” policy bars all proposed specifications that do not have an implementation plan from being adopted by OMG. This guarantees that all OMG specifications are immediately useable. Furthermore, we do not just focus on the specification itself - we focus on the whole product: with corresponding seminars, workshops, certification, books and more! OMG hosts four technical meetings throughout the year. These meetings give OMG members and interested nonmembers the opportunity to collaborate in a centralized location, learn about technology standards products and processes at tutorials, and attend special information day events on current trending hot topics. While technical meetings provide a centralized location for Task Forces and Working Groups to work together, they are merely checkpoints with the bulk of the work between members taking place electronically via email, teleconferences, and on wikis.In addition to technical meetings, OMG acts as event producer for conferences and workshops for its members around the world, including the Internationalization & Unicode Conference.OMG maintains liaison relationships with dozens of other organizations including ISO (which publishes many OMG standards without edits), Health Level Seven (HL7), and the Data Transparency Coalition.

Gas and Water Meter Reading
Gas and Water Meter Reading
Smart gas and water meters will provide a wealth of information that can help utilities and their consumers in many ways – from allowing fully automated billing based on time of use or network status (e.g., with prices rising and falling according to peak and trough usage) to enabling meter-to-appliance communications to help change consumer energy behavior.In the case of gas and water meters, RF communication is an increasing requirement because of the increasing availability of AMI (advanced metering infrastructure) architecture, with the smart electricity meter often acting as the gateway to the utility for meter reading.
Asset Efficiency
Asset Efficiency
Asset Efficiency refers to the process of analyzing the health of an asset. The health of an asset in itself relates to the asset's utility, its need to be replaced, and its need for maintenance. It can be broken down into three key components:1. Monitoring: Tracking the actual health and viability of the asset2. Diagnostic Analysis: Comparing new, real-time data to relevant data from the past in order to detect any anomalies.3. Prognostics: Given past data, algorithms are developed to determine the remaining useful life of an asset
Condition-based Maintenance (CBM)
Condition-based Maintenance (CBM)
Condition-based Maintenance (CBM) or predictive maintenance is the science of maintaining physical assets over time, in order to maximize their return on those assets. It is enabled by sensors and data analytics that provide visibility into the current and future status of assets.
