Data-driven decision making for smart city development


Together with SAP SE, we are delivering on our vision for smarter cities by harnessing the Internet of Things to help cities plan better and manage costs. By linking real-time information from Philips connected street lights with data from other sensors in a single integrated city dashboard, cities can gather valuable information about how their city is operating. The joint-offering combines real-time situational awareness based on the SAP HANA® platform with the Philips CityTouch street lighting management system to give planners a 360-degree view of data, including street lighting, waste management, parking, traffic controls, and more.

Philips Lighting and SAP


As the complexities of cities grow, a centralized dashboard is essential to helping cities effectively manage services. By combining the connected technology of Philips CityTouch with the SAP HANA platform, cities can improve their planning and manage costs.


In Buenos Aires, a joint SAP and Philips solution has enabled the city to increase operational efficiency, realize energy savings of over 50% and greatly improve safety and quality of life for its 13 million residents.
