Open systems within 

smart cities

Watch this webinar and learn why there should be openness and interoperability between vendor platforms in smart cities

 

 

As our urban centers transition into becoming Smart Cities, a new challenge is emerging. More and more areas of a city’s interaction with its citizens and its environment are being enriched with smart infrastructures for data management and communication – but those same infrastructures often cannot exchange their information effectively, or at all.

 

There is a real danger that as cities move into a data-driven future, they will be maintaining separate silos of information that are locked into proprietary APIs and standards from a single vendor. This is a waste of resources and a missed opportunity: sharing data through seamless integration on a higher level can boost all of these systems’ effectiveness and longevity.

 

In Openness in smart cities you will discover how an open data infrastructure can help cities to harmonize the way their different services store and share information, which in turn maximizes the value each of these services can deliver to the cities’ residents and businesses.
