hello Readers,

This post is the continuation of my previous post on smarter planet by IBM. This is and extension to what is been discussed in that post. Let us look at what smarter planet is aiming for.

Commonwealth of Massachusetts, City of Boston, Boston University & IBM Partner to Build a ‘Smarter Planet’.

Take a clean look at here

IBM Ecosystem Infographic: Building a Smarter City and State

To learn about how a Smarter City works see here

These ambitious projects focus on using new technology to increase energy efficiency, enhance coordination of major events, reduce traffic congestion and improve the maintenance of the streetscape. Across all of these initiatives, the partners plan to collaborate on the implementation and evaluation of this work.

These partnerships and projects, however, are the newest step in our exploration to better address long-standing interests of our residents, such as improving traffic and greening our city.”  These pilots leverage the latest IBM technology and will combine high volumes of data from sensors and databases with a layer of analytics software. This infrastructure will allow officials to better visualize and mange operations.

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts will work with IBM to improve the maintenance, energy consumption and space management across public sector buildings among the state’s 72 million square feet of property.  Buildings account for almost 40 percent of the nation’s energy consumption in the U.S. By creating smarter buildings, the Commonwealth will be better positioned to meet federal mandates for efficiency.

The use of integrated workplace management software from IBM will help improve building maintenance while extending the life of buildings and reduce the more than 120,000 work orders the state receives each year. This effort will help the state improve funding and space management by providing a complete view of building use and the ability to quickly identify redundant or under-used properties.

Thanks !!
