Today’s data platforms for Smart Cities should be taking on the toughest challenges of interoperability, information architecture and user complexity. But they’re not. We need to creatively evolve to an entirely new approach that avoids the confinements and limitations of today’s differing platforms.
Join this live webinar with experts from Harbor Research, an IoT research firm and consultancy, to discuss why platform development for future smart cities is contingent on open data and improved data partnerships between technology vendors, OEMs, software innovators and governments.
Freeing information from assets and systems for the user’s benefit, allowing stakeholders coming from various contexts to utilize the data they need to improve decision making, will be what sets the future for smart cities.
