IBM says that its MessageSight is an appliance aimed at enabling organizations to manage sensors and mobile devices in automatics, traffic management systems, smart buildings, household appliances and elsewhere.

Machine to Machine communication (M2M) really is the next big thing. Linking almost anything to anything else – the other name for the category is the “Internet of Things” – cheaply and wirelessly, opens almost endless possibilities.

SAP commissioned Harris Interactive to survey IT decision makers.

Other uses, with outcomes and ramifications just as great, are possible in industry, telecommunications and other realms.

Such a big change requires millions of developments and inventions. Here are the latest developments from the M2M sector.
