A computer-implemented procedure is to identify of a plurality-based policy that needs to be implemented in a system, the aggregation the plurality policy to create an aggregated plan disseminating that policy within the system and receiving information in accordance with the aggregated plan.

The invention is related to internet of things environments (IoT) and, more specifically, to optimizing the implementation of policies in IoT environments.

The Internet of things (IoT), which is a booming trend, is rapidly gaining momentum. Data generated and processed in these environments is growing quickly. The primary goal of an IoT environment, is to gather information, process and store it in a way that is valuable to tenants. IoT environments are characterized by the resources (e.g. storage, processing etc.). constraintsthat must be considered when performing such data gathering, storage, and processing.

In accordance with one embodiment an algorithm that is computer-implemented includes identifying a plurality of policies that need to be implemented within an organization, then aggregating the policies in order to create an aggregated plan disseminating the aggregated policies within the system, receiving the data in accordance with the aggregated policy and disaggregating the information.

Another embodiment of a computer program product that performs systemic adaptive data management includes an electronic storage medium that can be read by computers with program instructions embedded therewith. The computer readable mediumis not a signal that is temporary per se and the instructions of the program can be carried out by a processor that causes it to carry out a process that involves identifying a number of policies to be implemented in the system, aggregating the plurality policy to create an aggregated plan, disseminating the policies within the system, and receiving data in accordance with the aggregated policies, and finally, disaggregate

According to another embodiment the system comprises an engine, and logic integrated with the processor, executable by the processor or associated into and executed by the processor, in which the logic is configured to identify multiple policies to be implemented within the system, then aggregate the various policies to produce an aggregated plan that is distributed to the system, collect data gathered according to the aggregated policy, and then disaggregate the data.

What is a patent?

A patent is granted by the government to safeguard an invention, patents grant the inventor with the exclusive right to develop, utilize and sell the invention? society is benefited when a brand innovative technology is introduced into the marketplace. Benefits can be realized in direct terms, as it can allow individuals to achieve previously impossible things, or indirectly by the economic benefits (business expansion and job creation) that the innovation offers.

Patent protection is demanded by many university researchers and drug companies for their research and development. A patent can cover the physical or abstract nature of a product or process or a method or composition of materials that are new to the field. To be granted patent protection an invention has to be useful, new, and not obvious to anyone else within the same area.

Patents are a way to reward inventors for their commercially successful inventions. They are an incentive to inventors to invent. Patents allow entrepreneurs and inventors to know that there’s an excellent chance that they will receive a return on their time, effort, and money invested in the development of technology. They can earn money from their work.

Businesses that have the capacity to:

Secure innovative products and services;

Improve the value, the appearance, and visibility of your product on the market

Your business and your products should be distinguished from others;

Find out about business and technical information.

Avoid the risk of accidentally using proprietary third-party content, or losing important information, creative outputs, or any other innovative output.

Patents can transform an inventor’s knowledge into a commercially tradeable asset, which creates new opportunities for employment creation and business expansion by licensing or joint ventures.

Small companies that have patent protection will be more appealing to investors who are involved in the commercialization and development of technology.

Patents can result in innovations and new ideas. This information could be eligible for patent protection.

Patents can be used to prevent untrustworthy third parties from making money through the work of inventions.

Patent-protected technology revenue that is commercially profitable can be used for financing technology-related research and development (R&D) that increases the likelihood of better technology in future.

Intellectual property ownership is a way to convince investors and lenders that there are genuine opportunities to commercialize your product. One powerful patent may provide many financing opportunities. Patents as well as other IP assets are able to be used as collateral or as security for debt financing. Investors are also able to view the patents you own to increase the value of your company.

It is crucial to keep your invention secret until you submit for patent protection. Public disclosure of an invention could often damage its novelty and invalidate it. The filing of disclosures prior to filing, for example, for investors, test-marketing, or other business partners is best done after signing a confidentiality agreement.

There are numerous types of patents. Understanding them is crucial to safeguard your invention. Patents for utility are used to protect the development of new methods and machines. Design patents cover ornamental designs. Patents that are utility-based are ideal and shield the owner from copies and competitors. Utility patents are often issued to enhance or alter existing inventions. They can also be used to improve or alter existing inventions. A process patent will describe the methods or actions of performing a particular act. A chemical composition could be the combination of components.

What is the length of time a patent will last? Although utility patents last up to 20 years from their earliest filing, they may be extended through delays at the Patent Office.

Are you interested in similar patents? Here are the steps:

1. Create a list of terms to describe your invention based on the purpose, composition and application.

Begin by writing down a brief and precise description of your invention. Avoid using generic terms such as “device”, “process,” or “system”. Think about synonyms for the terms you picked initially. Also, make note of key technical terms and key words.

To help you identify the key words and concepts, try the following questions.

  • What is the goal of the invention Is it a utilitarian device or an ornamental design?
  • Does the invention consist of a method of making something or fulfilling a purpose? Are you referring to a product?
  • What is the purpose and composition of the invention? What is the invention’s physical constitution?
  • What is the goal of the invention?
  • What are the technical terms and terms used to describe an invention’s nature? To help you find the appropriate terms, use an online dictionary of technical terms.

2. These terms will enable you to look for relevant Cooperative Patent Classifications at Classification Search Tool. To find the most appropriate classification for your invention, look through the class scheme of the classification (class schedules). If you don’t get any results from the Classification Text Search, you may want to consider replacing the words for describing your invention using synonyms.

3. Go through 3. Go over the CPC Classification Definition to determine the accuracy of the CPC classification that you have located. The hyperlink to a CPC classification definition is given if the chosen classification title contains a blue box with “D” to the left. CPC classification definitions will assist you in determining the classification’s boundaries so that you can select the most relevant. These definitions may also include some search tips or other recommendations that could be helpful for further investigation.

4. Get patent documents using the CPC classification from the Patents Full-Text and Image Database. You can search and narrow down the relevant patent publications making a focus on abstract and representative drawings.

5. Utilize this selection of most pertinent patent documents to study each one in depth for any similarity to your own invention. Take note of the specification and claims. It is possible to find additional patents by referring to the patent examiner and applicant.

6. Search for patent applications that have been published using the CPC classification you picked in Step 3 from the Applications Full-Text and Image Database. It is possible to use the same strategy of searching as Step 4, narrowing your search results down to the most relevant patent application by examining the abstract as well as the drawings on each page. After that, take a close look at the patent applications published with particular attention paid to the claims as well as additional drawings.

7. You can search for other US patent publications using keywords searching in the AppFT and PatFT databases, and also search for patents classified as that are not issued by the United States according to below. Additionally, you can utilize web search engines to search for non-patent-related documents that describe inventions in the literature. Here are a few examples:

  • Add keywords to your search. Keyword searches may turn up documents that are not well-categorized or have missed classifications during Step 2. For example, US patent examiners often supplement their classification searches with keyword searches. Think about the use of technical engineering terminology rather than everyday words.
  • Search for foreign patents using the CPC classification. Then, re-run the search using international patent office search engines such as Espacenet, the European Patent Office’s worldwide patent publication database of over 130 million patent publications. Other national databases include:
  • Search non-patent literature. Inventions can be made public in many non-patent publications. It is recommended that you search journals, books, websites, technical catalogs, conference proceedings, and other print and electronic publications.

To review your search, you can hire a registered patent attorney to assist. A preliminary search will help one better prepare to talk about their invention and other related inventions with a professional patent attorney. In addition, the attorney will not spend too much time or money on patenting basics.
