Smart Cities & IoT

With the Internet of Things (IoT) growing at 25% a year in cities, the number of sensors generating data for city decision makers is higher than it has ever been. This provides a unique opportunity for local governments to reduce costs in areas such as waste management, street lighting, and public transport. If you’re making such significant investments in hardware, make sure you get the analytics right too.
