Technology Tackles Population Growth, Climate Change and Other Problems Cities Face
BARCELONA — SAP SE today highlighted the success of several local governments, partners and startups using SAP® solutions to manage population growth, disasters, citizen services and daily community stresses. SAP presented these success stories at the Smart Cities Expo and World Congress, being held November 17–19 in Barcelona.
“As individuals, we know that change and stress are sometimes unavoidable; what counts is how you surmount them and move on, and the same holds true for communities,” said Sean O’Brien, global vice president for Future Cities & Public Security, SAP. “Cities are increasingly investing in technology to promote their overall health and resilience, much as we do when tending to our physical fitness.”
Surmounting Urban Challenges on the SAP HANA® Platform
Software developers are choosing the SAP HANA® platform to address the diverse challenges associated with building a resilient community:
- Atomiton abstracts, models, indexes and makes city infrastructure searchable, allowing city managers to use sensors and app developers to innovate using this newly available data.
- Capriza simplifies urban management tasks and functions into quick one-minute workflows that enable employees to be productive, keep city officials up to date and keep citizens connected. It is far less expensive than traditional mobile application development.
- Incelligent helps avoid the need for separate networks for Internet of Things (IoT) data streams and other business or consumer traffic, making data-intensive visions for cities a reality. Incelligent also harnesses Big Data to transform networks into cognitive systems that self-optimize for effective urban service delivery when demand peaks, such as during conferences, parades and sporting events.
- OSIsoft enables real-time operational intelligence across a city’s operations. It integrates with the SAP HANA platform to provide novel insights through integration and advanced analysis of industrial operations and business data.
- Wittos is helping realize the European Union’s vision for a single, continent-wide telecom market. This involves the use of behavioral profiling technology to glean insights from IT users to help define what consumers need and the business models that are necessary to address such needs, all while maintaining the user’s privacy and data security.
The IoT is central to building smart cities. SAP is the first company to announce IoT solutions based on the new Intel IoT platform, developing solutions on SAP HANA Cloud Platform and running on the Intel Xeon processor E7 v3 family, providing the foundation for real-time, predictive solutions for customers.
