Dedham, MA (PressExposure) December 06, 2013 -- WebSphere Insights announced today the release of two new Q&As with industry leaders. The first on the Internet of Things (IoT), its benefit across multiple industries and IBM's approach towards the IoT concept, and the second on what the growing trend of big data means to business process management (BPM).
In an in-depth Q&A with Maribel Lopez of Lopez Research, she discusses the Internet of Things and its application in varied business scenarios. "I think Internet of Things is great because it brings some of the concepts that have existed strictly in newer computing to more traditional devices. Now with IoT, you can take the data from millions of sensors and figure out wacky things you didn't know before. The people that harness all this data and do something will end up being successful going forward," says Lopez.
An evolving concept that will drive business opportunities, Lopez is certain that IoT is here for the long haul. According to her, "I don't think it will pass. It's something that's been a long time coming and we've finally reached a maturity curve where we can do it."
In a Q&A with Nathaniel Palmer, VP and CTO of Business Process Management Inc., he explains how the big data trend is opening BPM to new data sources and opportunities to analyze processes more deeply and simulate potential improvements.
"The intelligence that comes from capturing event data, as well as driving greater understanding and innovation through simulation, is a big data scenario," says Palmer, a BPM veteran practitioner and author. "This cannot be done with a narrow lens on structured data, nor can it be limited to internal, single-company boundaries. That is why intelligent BPM processes often extend well-beyond discrete transactions between suppliers or customers."
