Rapid Urbanization to Drive Smart City Operations Platforms Market Growth

Smart cities comprise a “system of systems.”  These can include smart lighting systems, building automation systems, emergency management systems, security and access control systems, intelligent grids, renewable power, water treatment and supply, transportation, and more.  The smart city concept is not new; many of these systems existed well before the term “smart cities” was coined.  However, many end users are now attempting to integrate information from these disparate systems into a unified whole to provide a holistic view of the overall performance and state of the city and its various functions. 

Smart City PlatformsThis ARC Advisory Group research report provides a concise analysis of the market for enterprise level platforms developed for cities that provide centralized operations and collaborative city-wide solutions through enablement of applications for transportation, water, environmental, energy, security, governance, facility management, asset management.  The digitization of municipal, county, state, and other public agency services provides a platform for continuous improvement to a city’s livability, citizens’ lives, business environment, and visitor experience. 

The age of the Internet of Things (IoT) has brought with it an increasingly broad range of sensors and IoT platforms.  Many of these have made their way into the smart cities sector.  In many ways, IoT technology holds the best promise for providing unification and context to the huge array of data generated by smart cities and turning this data into actionable, contextualized information that can be used to reduce energy consumption and operational costs while improving the safety and quality of life of citizens.
