IBM smarter cities big data

The latest version of IBM’s Smarter Cities software includes several additional capabilities, including cloud-based analytics, that can help cities reduce their costs while increasing their efficiency and improving their infrastructure planning.

“The newest IBM Intelligent Operations software portfolio, based on open cloud computing standards, helps transform city operations to become more efficient. Designed in collaboration with city leaders, the software also applies predictive analytics to help cities budget for capital improvements and improve the efficiency of water utilities.” – IBM

“Delivered in the IBM SmartCloud, an open cloud platform that enables the secure exchange of information, the expanded IBM Smarter Cities Intelligent Operations software also helps reduce capital and technology installation costs. This allows cities to adopt a pay-as-you-go approach to transforming city services at the city’s own pace, more efficiently using valuable taxpayer dollars.” – IBM

The latest version of the Smarter Cities software includes infrastructure planning (to help forecast budgets for capital improvements), permitting and event management (to correlate activities across the city for better prediction of conflicts and problems), and water efficiency analytics (helping to improve city water systems performance).
