ab headshot2by Andy Bochman, author of the Smart Grid Security Blog and an Energy Security Lead for IBM’s Rational division.

Next month, I’ll be meeting with key industry experts to discuss Security metrics at the EnerSec Smart Grid Security Summit in San Diego. We’ll covering the challenges with, and business benefits of measuring utilities’ smart grid with the right metrics, including organizational security maturity. This got me thinking about consumers and behavioral economics and what we value as important. Is it convenience, social acceptance, security, privacy, price? Continue Reading »

“Hidden beneath the highways and streets of Washington DC is a sprawling infrastructure of hundreds of thousands of assets — water distribution pipes, valves, collection pipes, man holes, water meters and fire hydrants . . .

Here’s another true story from IBM’s First-of-a-Kind (FOAK) program, which pairs IBM researchers with clients to bring incredible discoveries and possibilities into view.

As DC Water discovered, bringing greater intelligence and connectedness into its operations would go a long way toward creating a truly integrated and smarter water system; and, most importantly, satisfying its thousands of customers.

And as all the FOAK projects are proving, it is the dynamic nature of this close interaction with IBM clients and the changing forces of the real world that drives innovation and brings it to market at an ever-quickening pace.

One of the discussions heard at last week’s Smarter Commerce Summit in San Diego, CA centered on a power shift from sellers to buyers that is redefining the term “commerce.”

Every day, companies make bet-the-business decisions about their customers, new products and even their own reputation based on account balances, delivery schedules, profit margins, and more — and most do it with crossed fingers. That’s because they know that decision making today is an art based on incomplete and conflicting information, and that hunches play a big role in determining which way to go.

Now imagine a company that could look at all of its information at once. Spot hidden trends before they occur. Target marketing of products across multiple channels to drive sales. And analyze vast amounts of customer data and insight, and feed it into every point in the process — from design to distribution.

Smarter Commerce at Work: "The Feedback Loop"

We’re now in the age of “Smarter Commerce“.  And below are examples of companies that are showing the way (click on the images for a larger view).
