3. Who are we? 4. IBM Database Software Manage your data smarter, faster, and at lower cost solidDB :Extreme speed Optimized for solutions requiring extreme speed -in-memory databases up to 10x the performance of on-disk U2 :Flexible data Optimized forrapid developmentof solutions requiring flexible data records IMS :Unmatched volume and speed Optimized for solutions requiring the highest levels of transaction and data volume and performance DB2 :Higher performance. Lower cost Optimized for top performancetransaction and analytic solutionswith lowest cost of operation Informix :Set it and forget it Optimized for top performance transaction-intensive solutions, clustering, and near hands free administration 5. Agile Flexible Fast Resilient Reliable Secure Invisible Minimal Affordable 20 of the top 25US Supermarkets 1,000s ofRetailers worldwide 95% of telecomservice delivery providers Over 2,500 ISVs worldwide Cost Effective Solutions for near hands freeadministration, high availability and clustering for transaction intensive solutions Intrado provides the core of U.S. 9-1-1 We needed a fast database; one that would respond immediately, every time Mission critical and life critical solutions Informix Dynamic Server (IDS) 6. IBM Smarter Planet Initiative 7. A mandate for change is a mandate for smart. The world is about to get a whole lot smarter. 8. Our world is becomingINSTRUMENTED Our world is becomingINTERCONNECTED Virtually all things, processes and ways of working are becomingINTELLIGENT 9. Information Management -What is so Smart? 10. Theneed for progress is clear. 170 billion Kilowatt-hours wasted each year by consumers due to insufficient power usage information. 11. Smart Meters using Informix TimeSeries

  • Digital Environment Home Energy Management System
  • Governments
  • Need to reduce emissions
  • Reduce energy reliance
  • Consumers
  • Reduce energy costs
  • Utility companies
  • Analyze usage patterns
  • Increase profits
  • Reduce emissions

"With help from the IBM Hursley team, we quickly found that Informix TimeSeries could deliver spectacular results You dont need to understand the technical details the point is that suddenly, energy monitoring for three million homes or more became a practical proposition. -Clive Eisen, Chief Technical Officer, Hildebrand 12. Smart Meter using Informix

  • 3,000,000 Meter Challenge
    • 3M homes to have Smart Meters
    • Up to 26 values recorded (Meter ID, Timestamp, 3 electricity phases, 1 Gas reading, 20 individual electrical sockets)
    • One reading every minute
    • High data rate
      • 60*24 = 1440 readings per day per meter
      • 50,000 readings per-second
    • Large data volume
      • Approaching 500Gb per day for data
  • Solution: IBM Informix TimeSeries

13. Smart Metering Practical Applications

  • Consumers
    • 7-year old refrigerator works fine
    • Cost to run the old refrigerator? (Ex. 250 a year)
    • Cost to run a new energy efficient refrigerator? (Ex. 50 a year)
    • Cost of the new refrigerator: 200
    • Return on investment in 1 year
  • Energy Companies
    • Change billing rates/models to increase profits
    • Reduce emissions
  • Government
    • Reduce energy consumption
    • Reduce emissions

14. Theneed for progress is clear. Annual impact of congested roadwaysin the European Union 100billion lost due to traffic congestion 15. "We needed to manage data from up to 100,000 vehicles about driving speeds on 3.5 million road segments at all times of day - this was a huge data challenge, and one that was likely to increase. Informix came out above all other leading solutions for its performance, scalability and reliability. Jon Tasker - Project Manager, Trafficmaster

    • Whats smart?
    • Real-time vehicle tracking
    • Real-time traffic prediction
    • Efficient resource management
    • Smarter Business Outcomes
    • 30% less fuel consumption
    • Reduced overtime by 15%
    • Less noise pollution
    • Lower carbon emissions

Smart Traffic using IBM Informix Trafficmaster delivers smarter navigation that can reduce fuel consumption by 30% 16. Smart Traffic using IBM Informix

  • The Need
    • Facilitate intelligent driving
    • Decipher data from 80,000 vehicles and 7,500 cameras/sensors
    • Realtime model for flow of vehicles
  • The Solution
    • Find most efficient routes
    • Allow businesses to track fleet
    • Locate stolen vehicles
    • Reduce emissions
    • Provide accurate ETAs

Finds the quickest route between two points 17. Smarter Railroad using Informix(Konkan Railways)

  • Manage timely operation of the platform lights
  • Timely air-circulation in long tunnels
  • Web-based train location system
  • Manage train operations and ticketing operations
  • Result
  • Cut down redundant manual procedures
  • Improve operating efficiency
  • Cut energy costs by 20%

"With the Railway Application Package system running on IBM software, Konkan Railway has significantly improved its ability to analyze, maintain and present data, helping to reduce the likelihood of passenger delays and cultivating better decision-making. Additionally, by automating the light-switching at stations with train arrival-departures, the system has helped cut such energy costs by approximately 20 percent -Vijay Devnath, chief manager (IT), Konkan Railway 18. Smarter Transit system using Informix and DB2

  • The Need
    • 2,000+ buses, tens of thousands of passengers per day
    • Need best routes for changing road conditions
    • Proactively communicate to passengers
  • The Solution
    • GPS in buses, cameras, sensors in turnstiles
    • Determine the most fuel efficient route
    • Enable identify and prosecute fare evaders
    • Provide passengers with real time information about delays and ETAs
    • Route optimization reduced cost by 30%

"Our transportation network is the lifeblood of our city. We now have the real insight we need to create the most efficient system possible so we can serve the people and create a city that is ready for the future. 19. Smart Healthcare using Informix and WebSphere

  • The Need (Croatian Public Institute of Health Care)
    • Paper-based process is inefficient
    • More efficient way to gather and analyze various samples
