Published by harborresearch

The Pervasive Internet and the new world of Smart Systems
are ushering in an era where people, machines, devices,
sensors, and businesses are all connected and able to interact with one another. As these previously disaggregated parties come together, new modes of collaboration and intelligence will abound fostering a trend that we call “Smart Business.” Machine- to-Machine communication (M2M) systems are merely the starting point. The development of the Pervasive Internet and the evolution toward Smart Business practices will enable a truly connected world. Inputs from machines, people, video streams, maps, newsfeeds, and sensors will be digitized and placed onto networks. This will lead to the convergence of the physical & virtual worlds, thus enabling collective awareness, creativity, and better decision making capabilities for societies that increasingly rely on real-time information and interactions. Many observers believe that this phenomenon will drive the largest growth opportunity in the history of business.

Scope of Study
The Pervasive Internet is a global technological opportunity of unprecedented proportions.The technology behind the Pervasive Internet will ignite an era of Smart Systems and Busi-ness that radically transforms customer service, resources allocation, and productivity in gen-eral. In this new era manufactured objects, general infrastructure, people, and businesses willbe connected and communicating constantly. As the world becomes connected, societies andgovernments alike will be able to respond to the needs of both citizens and assets in real time.The Internet is the primary driving force on the path to a truly connected world. First, theInternet gave us e-mail and the Web. Then came e-commerce and the ability of consumersand businesses to quickly purchase items, as well as the ability of retailers and businesses tobuild close relationships based on customer preferences.But the next phase will be much more profound. It includes shared and secure Internet ac-cess for device interaction—in many cases with no human intervention at all—as well asnetwork-based services such as status monitoring, usage tracking, consumable replenishing,and automated repair. These new services are based upon the convergence of networks, em-bedded computing, control, content, and sensor feedback.Our analysis and research is focused on understanding the strategic business implications of growth within the emerging Smart Systems arena. The research addresses the following key questions:
