The City of the Future, On a Budget

IBM’s announces its “Intelligent Operations Center” services, a “plug-and-play system for cities that want the benefits of real-time data crunching.” The idea is to create a system of real-time city data analysis for cities that can’t afford to develop their own system from the ground up:

The Intelligent Operations Center, which IBM will announce today at the Intelligent Cities Forum in Washington, D.C., is a streamlined suite of real-time dashboard, analysis, and data integration tools designed to mimic the more expensive civic control centers it has built in New York and Rio. Over the next 12 months, IBM intends to offer specific modules for public safety, water, and transportation that combine tools to make it easier to connect IBM’s analytical engines with embedded systems.
