Secure Trade Lane for worldwide goods exchange
IBM Research’s Secure Trade Lane solution concept helps facilitate a more secure exchange of container-based goods shipped worldwide.
An early warning system for automobiles
Quality information about cars currently relies on ‘lagging’ indicators, such as warranty costs, calls to customer service numbers and dealer service records. The trouble is that this information is only available after something has happened. IBM is working on a solution that will combine data from multiple sources and provide manufacturers with an Early Warning System to identify potential problems before they become major liabilities.
As technology enables employees to become increasingly mobile, IBM is helping boost the productivity of workers in the field through its BlueStar mobile device management system.
The use of biometrics, which uses physiological or behavioral characteristics to verify identities for security and privacy purposes, is growing. But determined identity thieves have already learned how to copy credentials from large databases. IBM Researchers are developing methods to help companies stay one step ahead, with a novel technique that distorts biometric data.

Transactional multi-site Grids
Grid computing is already successfully being used for scientific applications that require large amounts of processing power as well as computationally intensive financial applications, such as portfolio optimization and risk analysis. Applying that processing power to everyday transactions and core business processes is the next step. Learn how IBM Research is working on many of the key technologies needed to make transactional, multi-site Grids a reality.
Web-enabled Integrated Aftermarket Services
Aftermarket parts management involves a number of critical processes that often span multiple organizations and geographies in order to deliver a part to a customer on time. Seeing an opportunity to bring significant value to the challenge of aftermarket parts management, several IBM divisions are collaborating to develop an integrated aftermarket parts solution.
