Your needs

To meet the changing needs of their communities and overcome key challenges, your city or municipality must become smarter and more effective, deploying technology and sharing data to transform your operations. Your data portal will accelerate and underpin this switch, enabling the seamless collection, centralization and sharing of data assets, from business systems and Internet of Things (IoT) networks, aiding digitization, increasing your efficiency, enabling innovative new services, and driving closer collaboration with partners.

Scaling smart city programs with Opendatasoft’s data portal solution

Deliver transformative services to the community

Data powers smart cities, from connected mobility and energy management to air and congestion monitoring. Your data portal provides a central space to collect, combine, share and visualize all of your diverse data assets through self-service and APIs, scaling your projects, increasing collaboration and underpinning transformative services, improving engagement, driving usage and enabling innovative new applications that improve your citizens’ daily lives.

Connect and better manage your Internet of Things services

Your Internet of Things applications, such as air, water, traffic, and energy monitoring all produce enormous volumes of real-time data. Use your data portal to centralize, process and improve IoT data, making it understandable through visualizations, dashboards, and alerts that enrich and combine data assets to deliver meaningful insights for your community, helping drive innovation, better manage risk and increase transparency.

Increase efficiency through smarter collaboration

Digitizing your smart city services generates data and enables you to remove manual processes and increase internal and external collaboration. Use your data portal to centralize and share data, driving a more efficient, flexible and agile city that reduces administrative time and cost, while providing the foundation for collaboration and innovation across your wider local ecosystem with partners, government bodies, citizens and the private sector.


Town of Morrisville becomes a data-driven, cost-effective smart city

While a relatively small municipality, the Town of Morrisville in North Carolina is committed to embracing smart technology and data to deliver enhanced services through its Smart Morrisville program.

Our solution

  • Provides a single platform to collect and publish data from across smart city programs, as well as municipal operations
  • Underpins new innovations, including the Morrisville Central app
  • Streamlines data management, such as through the automated processing of incoming data, enabling the entire project to be managed by a small team

The benefits

  • Saves time for residents by making it easy to access information, without needing to make contact with the municipality. Over 1,800 people have now accessed the portal
  • Increases efficiency by automating previously manual processes, such as checking on trash can levels, freeing up staff time
  • Enables award-winning innovation, such as its IoT-based Connected Parks monitoring initiative

We want to use technology to enhance the lives of our citizens and the performance of our staff. That means becoming a data-driven, community-focused town. Data will drive everything in the future, so we want to make it available for everyone to use.
