Serious gaming what is it ?
where a Virtual world, a real world and an
IT world interact
based on “I'am smart” architecture, an
IBM sotfware framework
Human Centric Solutions « create added
value for everybody »
IBM Serious games for who ?
For our customers:
Climate proof game for Rotterdam city, Flood Control
2015, Tag My Museum
For our business partners:
Rational role play scenario
For the students:
INNOV8, Service Management Simulator
…why using games ?
Slide: 6
Flood Control 2015, the context (1/2)
Solutions for smart flood control
During a flood, a few hours can make all the difference between a disaster
and a near disaster.
The Flood Control 2015 integrated forecasting systems ensure that better
information reaches the right place more quickly. This not only increases
safety, but also limits damage and the number of victims. What is more, the
day-to-day management of water systems is significantly improved.
Flood Control 2015 is a program in which government and industry work to
gether to develop new solutions leading to better decisions in combating
flood risks
Flood Control 2015, the IBM serious game (2/2)
With mobile
technology, IBM

levees and to act on

in which many roles can

data

stakeholders

Tag My Museum : why? (1/2)
40% of the worlwide Cultural
Heritage is owned by Italy.
A critical factor for the country
is to leverage this uniqueness.
Italian towns and their
museums need to identify new
ways for promoting their
artistic legacies and thus
attract new visitors
like children from 9 to 13

Tag My Museum: how does it work? (2/2)
A treasure hunt for contents that uses
the tag technology
Every visitor can take part to the
« treasure hunt » by using his mobile
phone, if equipped with camera and
bluetooth
The visitor, by photographing the
tags receives on his mobile phone
some contents provided by the
Museum
If the visitor correctly follows the
designed « journey » he finally wins a
gadget

Innov8 2.0 workshop Presentation (1/3)
Objectives
Introduce students on Business Process
Management (BPM) fundamentals, from early
discovery and modeling stage to optimization
and monitoring.
Introduce a professional modeling tool like
WebSphere Business Modeler.
Provide students with a broader business
perspective with CBM (Component Business
Model)
and
SOA
(Service
Oriented
Architecture) main concept.

Games and Gamers are changing the learning
landscape
Our research shows that this new generation is very
different from the boomers in ways that matter to the
business.
Beck and Wade
They desire systematically different
goals in life
They have systematically different
ways of working
How they compete, fit into teams,
take risks are all different in
statistically verifiable ways

Business Challenge: Skills Gaps in Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)
and Business Process Management (BPM)
Shortage of required SOA & BPM
Analyst skills in the marketplace
IBM IMPACT 2007 survey shows
• Half of respondents said they have
less than 25 percent of the necessary
SOA skills to help their company meet
long term goals.
• 80 percent are increasing SOA skills in
their company this year
• More than 60 percent are focused on
retraining existing staff on SOA
• A combination of business and IT
skills was cited by 68 percent of the
respondents as a prerequisite to
applying SOA to meet business goals.

Stated Objectives:
• Create ‘serious game’ to assist
teaching BPM 101 fundamentals
• 1 hour, interactive learning- lab
experience;
• Complimentary to and incorporated
within existing IBM and institutional
curricula. (Most effective in
conjunction with face-to-face class
room debriefs)
• Initial target audience: MBA, Exec
MBA, and undergraduate business
and information systems students
Our bigger vision… serve wider range of audiences

Service Management Virtual Simulator
Based in a realistic virtual organization where players learn how service management
and IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) processes can be applied
to significantly improve business performance and increase operational maturity.
•IBM views serious gaming as a new and exciting way to develop the skills
that are required as business and IT become more closely aligned
•IBM's Service Management Simulator was designed to help business professionals
build these critical skills in a real business environment without the risk involved in learning on the job
The simulator helps players understand customer pains, the benefits of ITIL-based process,
and how IT the business as a whole can improve Service Management.

Services, Service Components and Flows Are SOA
Modeling Constructs
Business Processes – represent the flows of activities
required to complete a business process. They are
compositions of services targeted to achieve business goals
Services –the main structuring element required by a service
consumer, provided by the service provider. Offers functionality
and quality of service, both of which are externalized within
service descriptions/policy. Services could be atomic or
composite
Components – that realize not only the functionality of the
services they expose but also ensure their quality of service
(the QoS advertised by the Service provider implementing
(“realizing”) the services

SOMA was created to specifically address modeling (analysis, identification, specification, realization,
implementation) of all three constructs and associated Information, Composition, Policies, Context, Events.
