Smart City Platforms Growth Driven by COVID-19 Response

Dedham, Massachusetts - Aug. 3, 2020 - New ARC Advisory Group research on the global Smart City Platforms market reveals that many cities and governments are finding that smart city platforms are helping them mount a more effective response to the COVID-19 pandemic and for developing a more resilient infrastructure moving forward. The research forecasts the market for smart city platforms through 2024 and analyzes key growth drivers and headwinds.

“Smart city platforms are IoT-enabled solutions that allow end users to gain seamless access to data across the multiple siloes of functionality that exist in today’s cities.  These include applications like transportation management, health and public safety, environmental (including water and wastewater), energy, governance, the built environment, and more,” according to Larry O’Brien, vice president of research at ARC Advisory Group and key author of ARC’s Smart City Platforms Global Market Research study. “This is particularly relevant today as cities and towns struggle to deal with the economic and social challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic."

“Traditionally, these systems have existed in isolation, with a wide variety of legacy equipment and systems.  Smart city platforms provide a single environment for managing data from all of these applications and systems, and more importantly they have the ability to take the large amounts of data coming from these systems and turn it into actionable information to address specific issues within the city,” added O’Brien.
