Global IT solutions, services and technology firm IBM, today announced that its Smart City solutions have been deployed for the digital transformation of the Presidential Estate. Spread across 330 acres of land and home to over 5,000 residents, the self-sustained Presidential Estate is adopting IBM’s technology and solutions to become future ready.
The Intelligent Operations Center (IOC) addresses challenges that are inherent to townships- water supply, security, electrical infrastructure and solid waste management. The transformation of the estate into a smart township is customised to further enhance the efficiency of critical infrastructure and utilities, said a release from IBM.
IBM’s IOC helps collect and make sense of the data streaming in from several sources within the Estate to provide actionable insights. It offers integrated data visualisation, near real-time collaboration and analytics to help enhance and improve the efficiency of services for its residents.
A Citizens Mobile App, created by IBM IOC, was also launched, which allows residents to report issues using the web and mobile. The data from reported observation will be supplied to city offices, where they can use the insights to make informed decisions.
“Rashtrapati Bhavani is an iconic representation of India’s Smart City vision. It is a proud moment for all of us and the beginning of a great journey. We are honored to be their partner in enabling this transformation,” said, Vanitha Narayanan, MD, IBM India.
