IBM suggests one point solution for smarter cities
IBM announced the launch of IBM Intelligent Operations Center for Smarter Cities at the IBM Software Universe 2011 in Mumbai .
The solution is designed to help cities gain a holistic view of information across city departments and agencies.
IBM says that local city leaders can leverage analytical insights to monitor and manage city services through one central point of command. This will help them to anticipate problems, respond to crisis, and manage resources.
“The future is smart cities. The solution has been designed to allow city leaders to access integrated, city-wide information in a single, unified view and deliver rapid, coordinated responses to events,” says Pradeep Nair, Director, Software Group, IBM India/ South Asia.
The IBM Intelligent Operations Center will allow cities to use information and analytics to make smarter and timely decisions. It aims to manage planned and unplanned events like deploying water maintenance crews to repair pumps before they break, alerting fire crews to broken fire hydrants at an emergency scene, or anticipating traffic congestion and preparing redirection scenarios.
