Smart communities achieve data-driven performance
Smart communities and smart cities push aside politics and preconceptions in favor of using data and analytics to make decisions. High-performing organizations use location as the standard analytical approach to achieve new insight. Increasingly, smart devices, the Internet of Things (IoT), and cloud computing are feeding data on the locations of people, nature, vehicles, and infrastructure. When governments geoenable data and enterprise systems, they can bring about business intelligence, establish more efficient workflows, improve communication, and tackle an issue in its entirety as opposed to its individual parts. Esri's GIS-based smart community information system helps communities drive down costs, reduce time to action, and support decision-making and policy decisions that improve the overall quality of life, neighborhood by neighborhood.
Leverage a system for real-time data and analytics
Smart communities and smart cities can achieve data-driven performance when they embrace GIS technology that
- Analyzes data quickly to change the pace of government services.
- Migrates from static to real-time decision-making.
- Improves urban mobility through intelligent infrastructure.
- Uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to better understand patterns and reduce impacts.
- Integrates autonomous vehicle information, sensors, and devices in the urban landscape.
- Provides operations dashboards to improve responsiveness.
Data-driven performance in action
We could go through the entire city and just pave every road, and it will cost us a billion dollars. Or we can take limited resources, use GIS, and very easily and surgically fix the problems where they occur and save a lot of resources in the meantime.
ArcGIS advances smart communities
Making data-driven decisions that improve quality of life is the goal of every smart community. ArcGIS capabilities and products make this possible.
