Projekt ÖdiS uppmärksammas av EU

Stockholmskommunernas gemensamma öppna data-initiativ, ÖDIS, har nominerats till Regiostars som belönar Europas mest innovativa regionala projekt.

– ÖDIS är ett unikt regionalt samverkansprojekt och det är väldigt roligt att initiativet uppmärksammas i Europa. Förhoppningsvis kan det inspirera fler att göra samma satsning, säger Johanna Engman, Stockholms stads it-direktör.

Nomineringen tillkännagavs under en gala på EU-kommissionens huvudkontor i Bryssel under tisdagen. Vinnaren utses av en jury i oktober. I samband med nomineringen är ÖDIS även med i omröstningen för Public Choice Award som är öppen fram till den 9 september. Projektledare för ÖDIS (Öppna data i Stockholmsregionen) är Beatrice Sablone och Agust Wadström.

Smart cities need to prioritize people’s needs, not technology | Marketing Interactive

Building a smart city requires technology, but prioritising technology over people could undermine effectiveness, according to a recent study.

“To fulfill the promise of smart cities, we must start focusing less on technology and more on how to use it to make lives better for people. We believe real estate can be a connector between the people who are the lifeblood of cities and the digital infrastructure that is increasingly powering our urban environments,”

A good way to do this is to focus on the services you wish to give your citizens. After that, you select the necessary technologies to fulfill that service, preferably re-using existing sensors or legacy systems to control the costs. This practical approach to Smart City projects requires you to have an IoT integration capability that to a large extent makes your processes and services technology and supplier neutral. The purpose is much more important than enabling technologies.

The Top 50 Smart Cities In The World 2019 – CITI IO

IESE Business School in Barcelona has released the data and rankings for the world’s smartest cities for 2019. The IESE Cities in Motion Index (CIMI) is now on its sixth year and the research is led by IESE professors Pascual Berrone and Joan Enric Ricart. This year’s index covered a total of 174 cities (79 of them capitals) representing 80 countries.

The authors stressed in their study that no matter how good the city’s strategy is, without the active collaboration of the public sector, private companies, civic organizations, academic institutions, and government, nothing will be possible and it will be destined for failure.

Collaboration with IoT data is spelled YGGIO.

Unlocking the potential of the Internet of Things | McKinsey

If policy makers and businesses get it right, linking the physical and digital worlds could generate up to $11.1 trillion a year in economic value by 2025.

This report from McKinsey Global Institute predicts that 40% of the total IoT value comes from having systems and devices that can communicate with each other. Without this companies will miss out on a potential $40 trillion each year globally.

Why interoperability is the key to delivering real value from IoT-connected cities.

This is the value of Yggio.

The alternatives for massive IoT and Smart Cities or Buildings would be to either invest in one technology like 5G and try to use it for everything or embrace the different technologies with their strength in different use cases and link everything together with Yggio.

5 major challenges hurting the smart building sector in 2019 – asmag.com

We speak to Terrill Laughton, VP and GM of Energy Optimization and Connected Equipment at Johnson Controls to get his views on what’s hurting smart buildings growth.

“Historically, building management operations and services have been siloed. HVAC, security solutions, energy use, and infrastructure solutions, services and maintenance have been separate entities, each with different monitoring, maintenance, and management. The data gathered from these systems similarly has not been used to its fullest potential due to the unavailability of technology capable of synthesizing data from all of these systems in one place.”

This is where Yggio comes in. By adding Yggio integration on top of all existing building systems you can integrate everything and feed your BMS with minimum risk. No change-out, just add Yggio.

“Samarbete och öppen källkod skyndar på kommunernas digitalisering” – Computer Sweden

Kommunerna måste få det lättare att dra nytta av framsteg som göra i andra kommuner, skriver Nordix vd Daniel Byström ​​​​​​​och föreslår införandet av en nationell app store för mjukvara baserad på öppen källkod.

Sensative kan inte annat än hålla med till 100%. Vi är med och driver denna fråga med vår open source-baserade horisontella IoT-plattform Yggio, för att skapa en grogrund för mängder av tjänster som lätt kan flyttas mellan olika kommuner.
