How does UMS help cities become “smart?”
In order to implement the appropriate solution, it’s imperative to understand the problem facing many cities today. Government departments tend to operate as they have for many years: in silos. For example, individual departments may purchase hardware or software that solves some of their key problems, but doesn’t address other departments or the organization as a whole. This results in multiple systems that don’t talk to each other and, by default, an overload of data with no plans or resources to put it to good use.
