At the Maximo Transportation User Group meeting at IBM Pulse 2012, Dr. Asaf Adi, from IBM Research, Haifa, Israel presented his findings during a session with Chevron and SRO. During the session, Chevron and SRO focused on the global tanker fleet deployment at Chevron, while Dr. Asaf broadened the discussion to cover the analytic use cases for proactive location intelligence, that IBM Research has been involved in.
Before this meeting I didn't know about the research that IBM has been doing around proactive location intelligence. We hear a lot about moving from reactive to preventive to proactive maintenance, but adding the location intelligence to proactive maintenance can be even more beneficial.

He explained that visual analytics and dashboards provide images of assets and events to enable proactive event driven computing. Once you can detect the location of the assets and their condition, you can then make predictions, which then lead to decisions which you can act on.
Dr. Asaf proceeded to take the audience through 4 use cases:
We leave the 5th use case up to you. Tell us where you see proactive location intelligence helping your business, by commenting on this blog.
