Synopsis:

Data is being captured today as never before. It reveals everything from large and systemic patterns - of global markets, workflows, national infrastructures and natural systems - to the location, temperature, security and condition of every item in a global supply chain. At IBM, we want that intelligence to be infused into the systems and processes that make the world work - into things no one would recognise as computers. This presentation will look at how IBM is helping organisations better position themselves to outperform in this "Decade of Smart."

Chris Nott is the lead architect in IBM Software Group for UK Public Sector.
