Delivering the IBM Smart Cities Agenda: The technology needed to deliver more competitive, effective and efficient cities City governments around the world are looking for ways to improve city life; a great city to live in, attracts the best talent, an efficient city is attractive to business, and effective city is robust and responsive to the changes and threats we face. As importantly, the drive to do more with less comes from the need to make the best use of resources - not just because it makes sense financially, but because environmental issues demand that we understand how resources are consumed and the effect we are having on the global environment.Drawing on its experience of over 2,000 engagements with cities around the world, IBM has develop the city operations center to integrate and analyze information, and provide decision makers with the tools they need to manage complex city environments against the demanding targets they are set. The Intelligent Operations Centre underpins the delivery of public safety and security solutions, intelligence transport, city planning and management capabilities and Citizens services.In this agenda item, Mike will look at how technology can help city officials manage and protect the city infrastructure better and improve the effectiveness of Public Administration - all with the aim of making cities smarter: more competitive, better places to live and work, while managing their impact on the natural environment.

Customer Story with University of Ghent

Johan Van Camp
Head of ICT Infrastructure,University of Ghent

Download the Presentation

In order to meet a growing and ever more complex demand of housing computer power, Ghent University decided in 2009 to take a leap forward and shift from retrofitting existing building spaces to constructing a brand new datacenter facility from the ground up. Within the university there was no real previous experience with building or operating megawatt-scale datacenters, but nevertheless the timeframe for the design phase was limited. This implied that the project team had to face a critical set of design choices with little time for extensive reflection or evaluation. This presentation shares the process of making these decisions, and evaluates the choices made based on the experience of operating the new facility over the past two years

This could be a safety system or control system on an oil rig, a navigation system on a ship, or piece of imaging equipment in a hospital or clinic.
