I was reading Konecranes’ Annual Report 2011 and their CEO said that they launched a new corporate vision:
We know in real time how millions of lifting devices
and machine tools perform. We use this knowledge around
the clock to make our customers’ operations safer and more
At IBM, we want that intelligence to be infused into the systems and processes that make the world work—into things no one would recognize as computers: cars, appliances, roadways, power grids, clothes, even natural systems such as agriculture and waterways.
The message of Smarter Planet (instrumented, interconnected, intelligent) is reflected in Konecranes’ vision (millions of devices, know in real time, use this knowledge).
It is interesting that IBM started to talk about Smarter Planet (instrumented, interconnected, intelligent) over three years ago and now, as Konecranes’ vision indicates, the same Smarter Planet theme is reflected in real-life as a real agenda for corporations.
