IBM has unveiled new capabilities in its Smarter Cities software, delivering cloud-based analytics to help cities gain powerful insights into how to better serve their citizens, it said. 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.
Delivered in the IBM SmartCloud, an open cloud platform that enables the secure exchange of information, the expanded IBM Smarter Cities Intelligent Operations software is also designed to help 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, using taxpayers' money more efficiently. With cloud products, cities get started immediately, without specialised hardware or procurement delays, making it possible to begin with small projects and scale across departments using one integrated software system available as a service.
