Fujitsu RunMyProcess Shows How the Internet of Things can be Harnessed Today to Save Lives
Munich/Paris, December 17, 2014 – Fujitsu RunMyProcess demonstrates how it is helping startups like HOP Ubiquitous (HOPU) to turn their concepts into a digital business, quickly and with low Total Cost of Ownership. Providing a cloud platform for the rapid implementation and testing of innovations, both for Fujitsu and for its customers around the world, it is a key enabler to the company’s vision of a Human Centric Intelligent Society. Fujitsu RunMyProcess delivers the capabilities required to build connected digital systems spanning cloud, on-premise and mobile environments.
The Internet of Things (IoT) brings huge growth potential to the global economy. Important new standards are enabling things to communicate more effectively with each other. Headquartered in Murcia in Spain, HOPU is a startup specializing in wearable and sensor-based technologies. Through its important contributions to and support for flagship standards – such as OMA, IPv6 and CoAP – it is a leading player in the definition of management, inter-operability and security standards for the emerging IoT and its wider connection to other web- and cloud-based services. Using this expertise, HOPU is working to accelerate the emergence of new cross industry value models such as the emerging industrial Internet also called Industry 4.0.
Winning the prestigious Best Demonstration Award at the 4th International Conference on The Internet of Things (MIT Media Labs, Cambridge, USA October 2014), it showcases how cloud computing and the IoT can be brought together to enable new forms of social infrastructure that react to people’s needs in real time. The demonstration is illustrated in the video Exploiting the Internet of Things – A Life and Death Example of Hyperconnectivity in Action that shows how lives can be saved by combining ubiquitous sensing via personal sensors and a Human Centric ICT System. In this case, the Fujitsu RunMyProcess platform was configured to the specialized needs of the scenario in just five days. Previously, getting such a solution up and running would have taken months, if not years.
