ThingWorx enables rapid creation and deployment of new IoT applications that connect, manage, and optimize complex sets of disparate sensors, devices, people and software solutions into a “system of systems” for use in smart cities.
Solving IoT Challenges for Smart Cities
New Internet of Things (IoT) applications that leverage ubiquitous connectivity, big data and analytics are enabling Smart City initiatives all over the world. These new applications introduce tremendous new capabilities such as the ability to remotely monitor, manage and control devices, and to create new insights and actionable information from massive streams of real-time data.
As a result, IoT offerings are transforming cities by improving infrastructure, creating more efficient and cost effective municipal services, enhancing public transportation, reducing traffic congestion, and keeping citizens safe and more engaged in the community.
Forward-thinking cities, smart city solution providers and system integrators recognize that in order to realize the full value of IoT cities must not deliver disparate smart city point solutions, but rather enable a secure and scalable IoT infrastructure that integrates multiple systems.
McKinsey estimates that 40 percent of the total value that can be unlocked requires different IoT systems to work together. (Reference:McKinsey Global Institute – The Internet of Things: Mapping the Value Beyond the Hype).
