Putting Data to Work

The Chief Data Officer (CDO) is a new and significant addition to city executive councils around the globe. The proliferation of this new role is thanks to the greater presence of Internet of Things (IoT) technology where torrents of new data need to be harnessed in order to drive the Smart City revolution.

Between population growth, constrained resources and challenges like tough climate targets, cities have very little choice but to get smarter. And like almost every other facet of life today, the IoT phenomena promises to transform our city lives, revealing new data and operational insights from an exponentially growing number of smart, connected sensors.

But with so many promising IoT solutions in the market today, it can be difficult for city leaders to discern which has tangible benefits to the city and individual agencies.

Allied Telesis is helping cities and their CDOs navigate the challenges of designing and implementing custom IoT solutions that deliver the performance and return-on-investment demanded by city leaders and the citizens they represent.
