Smart Cities technologies can help power more efficient, greener, and more livable cities. The insights from Smart City devices can optimize city operations and generate significant cost savings, but challenges remain integrating with the in-place municipal systems that could benefit most. As city governments continue to increase investments into IOT technologies, Smart City decision makers should focus on solutions that emphasize local, real-time data analysis, and interoperability to maximize impact, as well as uncovering hidden insights by using Machine Learning.We've put together this infographic of Smart Cities Trends & Spend to help you navigate IOT opportunities and uncovering IOT efficiencies in your Smart City:
The Internet of Things (IOT) has the potential to unlock deep insights about IT (Information Technology) and OT (Operational Technology) aspects of Building Management by using data and insights from Machine Learning. Integrating Building Management Systems (BMS) with IOT sensors can provide insights that identify inefficiencies, predict maintenance needs, and alert facilities managers to equipment failures in real-time. In order to maximize the benefit of IOT investments, building managers should look to IOT solutions that aggregate across all systems (HVAC, utilities, security, etc.) to deliver a complete, contextual view of current building performance.
