Data exchanges like Cincy Insights have already demonstrated the value of big data in smart planning.They allow us to make better real-time and long-term planning decisions. However, collecting usable data is not as easy as it may seem, and in fact, creating standards and interoperable protocols are required to enable scalability and usability of such portals.

Big Data and IoT can significantly optimize and replace existing systems and inefficiencies; however, if not planned properly, can significantly strain already alleviated budgets. Join a leadership workshop to explore success stories, challenges, and opportunities using IoT and Big Data in smart cities and businesses.
