Managing Director, Location Intelligence

City government is a naturally, geographically-based business. Streets don’t get plowed; refuse doesn’t get collected; police are not routed safely, and taxes don’t get collected if city managers and policy-makers don’t know where to dispatch scarce resources. Location-based data must be collected, visualized and analyzed, and today, there is more of it than ever before. With IoT in everything we do - from traffic sensors to pollution monitors to GPS, data with geographical coordinates are being collected every second. The challenge is how to manage big data and most importantly how to develop intelligent infrastructure management systems that enable both department managers and field service personnel to be more proactive. This presentation will demonstrate solutions and case studies focused on cities that are taking an enterprise view of deploying geospatial technology throughout city government to make their organizations more location intelligent and productive.
