IBM adds permitting, water analytics to software for cities | SmartPlanet

This morning, IBM announced new capabilities for its “Smarter Cities” software, which is used by municipalities to monitor and manage activity more efficiently.

The upgrades, which are specifically for its “Intelligent Operations” cloud-based software, include additions for city permitting and event management, infrastructure planning and water efficiency analytics. Each feature aims to give city officials in typically siloed departments a better understanding of what’s going on systemically, and thus more opportunity to do something about it through budgeting or prevention through prediction.
