Smarter Planet is a corporate initiative of the information technology company IBM. The initiative seeks to highlight how forward-thinking leaders in business, government and civil society around the world are capturing the potential of smarter systems to achieve economic growth, near-term efficiency, sustainable development and societal progress.

Examples of smarter systems include smart grids, water management systems, solutions to traffic congestion problems,greener buildings, and many others. These systems have historically been difficult to manage because of their size and complexity. But with new ways of monitoring, connecting, and analyzing the systems, business, civic and nongovernmental leaders are developing new ways to manage these systems. IBM’s strategy is to provide or enable many of these technology and process management capabilities and, outside of the realm of technology, to advocate for policy decisions that, according to the views expressed by IBM’s management in interviews, speeches, op-ed articles and opinion advertising, and other public venues, could “make the planet smarter.”

Which industries will adopt the smarter systems and which ones will lag behind? What are the possible scenarios of development and strategies? For example it could be argued that the inherent principal-agent problem in public sector could significantly hinder the adoption of smarter systems. Even though there’s much to be gained from smarter systems in city management, healthcare, public safety, traffic, etc. the politicians could ignore the benefits as they would only realize costs but not see the benefits in their terms.

This is an analysis for adoption of smarter systems by industry in the form of a mindmap. The original mindmap could be downloaded from xmind or biggerplate mindmap libraries.
