Oracle's Smart City Platform Solution Encompasses the Full Breadth of City Activities

Oracle's smart city platform solution offers a comprehensive set of technologies that go beyond improving the internal operations of cities.

"The platform addresses the full ecosystem of a city—internal processes, interactions with citizens and businesses, and data collected from sensors in Internet of Things implementations," says Iemke Idsingh, public sector solutions director for Oracle's smart city platform solution. "The solution has become even more comprehensive than ever."

Oracle's smart city platform solution combines Oracle technologies and applications that enable city managers to consolidate IT infrastructures, improve service delivery, and create a foundation for new services. The modular set of solutions enable city managers to build the solution incrementally according to needs and budgets, as well as supply an intelligence solution for more-effective program planning and budgeting.

A Range of Benefits
This comprehensive approach to enhancing city operations delivers four key benefits.
  • Improved engagement with constituents. Local authorities and administrators effectively handle information requests from citizens and businesses, manage incident reporting, schedule inspections, and perform other daily activities.
  • The ability to launch new capabilities. The platform helps cities recruit new business more successfully, better manage civil contingencies, and conduct more-effective disaster planning.
  • Opportunities for creating a "sentient city" infrastructure. Intelligent controls and sensors interconnected using secure networks gather big data inputs to improve the quality of life in the municipality.
  • Greater insights from unified analyses. The platform brings together data from multiple sources for analysis by a cross-discipline business intelligence layer. This means cities can more closely study the impact of new initiatives as well as trends in feedback from residents.
