Real-Time Intelligence Visualization-RTIV…new term for your consideration

Real-time Intelligence Visualization (RTIV), as described in a recent ABI Research report, is a combination of various wireless technologies that can act as an integrated system and more importantly, "actionable business intelligence (BI)." These technologies include RFID, Ultra-wideband (UWB), and Wi-Fi, that are often used separately in certain real-time location systems (RTLS). The report suggest that, "These competitive, yet complementary wireless technologies, approaches, and solutions have historically been treated as independent silos, but they are now converging. In a growing number of end-user environments a combination of technologies is being used. For example, passive and active RFID may be used jointly for fixed and mobile asset tagging; Wi-Fi- and UWB-based RTLS solutions may be leveraged for hospital asset tracking; or a combination of GPS and active RFID may be employed for cargo tracking and security."

I’m not crazy about the term, but the concept, in principal, is sound and coincident with my views on where location intelligence systems are going. The convergence we are seeing in GIS/BI and with real-time data will form the foundation of location intelligent solutions. ABI Research suggests this is more RTIV.
