Asset Intelligence: A Tactical Tool Or A Strategic Opportunity?
More and more companies are using signals and sensors to drive operational performance and shorten the cycle between information and day-to-day business decisions. They're also driving productivity improvements by squeezing costs out of many kinds of transactions. Is this just another technology fad - or can organizations achieve higher-level strategic advantages by redefining assets as engines for intelligence? To accomplish genuine enterprise automation and asset intelligence, new technologies must create a living "Digital nervous system" for business intelligence of all kinds. That means nothing less than turning the enterprise into a living information organism - a self-aware, self-regulating, self-optimizing creature.
