The Sensing Enterprise paradigm relies upon the collection and processing of several types of data, from a wide variety of sources, including sensor networks. If the data collected is to be useful in the support and decentralization of its decision-making capabilities, the data gathered must be transformed into actionable information and knowledge. Knowledge management principles can and should be applied as they can assist in the fulfillment of the Sensing Enterprise vision. It states that enterprises with sensing capabilities will be able to anticipate future decisions by the understanding of the information handled, which enables specific context situations awareness.
