As cities move to embrace smart city technologies and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, they need to understand the new data challenges associated with these projects. In this white paper, we explore the drivers and reasons to implement
a Smart City Data strategy and architecture for tangible city and community improvements, not just a science experiment. We review the challenges and
how some cities are preparing to manage the data coming from sensors and IoT devices. Going even further, we review how the data can be leveraged to provide actionable intelligence and predictive insights. Lastly, we review some of the software and Dell EMC infrastructure needed to support smart city solutions along with recent innovations from Intel that makes a smart city possible.
