With insight from more 2,000 Smarter Cities projects, IBM has developed the expertise and capabilities to help cities of
all sizes become smarter.
As cities grow and expand their services, the management and governance across the city becomes increasingly complex.
Through better information sharing, among agencies and with the public, city leaders can line up priorities and resources
more effectively, and better transparency and visibility can help increase public trust.
Cities consume 75 percent of the world's energy, drivers spend the equivalent of five days a year in traffic, and infrastructure
leaks waste millions of gallons of water each day. IBM offers solutions that can reduce expenses by optimizing infrastructure
processes, and increase sustainability of city energy, water, transportation and building systems.
City Human Services
Budget crunches, lack of communication among agencies, fraud, and risk and compliance issues are just some of the challenges
city governments face. IBM solutions use analytics and other technologies to help personalize programs, customize learning and
optimize resource allocations for social services, public safety, citizen health and education.
