As we move towards the "Internet of things", it can be expected that millions of devices of different size and capability will be connected and interact with each other. That in conjunction with the trend towards a service oriented business infrastructures leads to increased complexity that has to be managed. Future enterprise services will interact with this vast number of devices and services that depend on them. Central management is not favoured and maybe even not possible. Intelligence will probably be distributed at several layers between enterprise systems and the devices themselves. Therefore the devices are expected to feature at some level self-features such as self-management, self-healing etc, which in conjunction with cooperation capabilities will lead to self-sustained autonomic sensor-network infra-structures.
