APIs: an Essential Part of Any IoT and Connected Devices Projects

APIs: an Essential Part of Any IoT and Connected Devices Projects

IoT and smart devices, almost by definition, generate large quantities of data. Those data are most valuable when developers can access them in “plug-and-play” format.

Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) allow third parties to build new applications that rely on continuously updating datasets without needing to make manual changes. APIs are essential to the networked, grassroots strategy of any cities willing to develop an IoT or smart city’s project.

Whether it’s real-time parking, bus positions or electricity consumption, APIs have been crucial for our clients to facilitate entrepreneurial third-party uses of their data.

Public Private Partnerships and Data Interoperability

Public Private Partnerships and Data Interoperability

Many cities and smart city stakeholders have taken these initiatives one step further by partnering with private companies that generate relevant public service data. The ability to merge public and private data represents a significant opportunity for generating value from data portals.

Leverage public private collaboration for a better data interoperability.

Data as a Smart City Asset

Data as a Smart City Asset

“Cities and their solution providers cannot extract the full value of data for these uses if it is held in disparate systems and databases that limit access and use.
The effective management of data is not limited to data capture and storage but must also include data that is shared and combined so it can be accessed, analyzed, and used across departments, between organizations, and even with the community at large.” Ruthbea Yesner, VP Government Insights and Smart Cities at IDC.

2. Mobility and Interconnectivity


For many cities, smart parking is becoming an essential component of a multi-modal transit solution. As cities implement smart solutions to individual components of their transportation systems, it will be increasingly important to incorporate data sharing systems behind the scenes to integrate otherwise separate data sources and applications.

Discover how cities and private companies use data to meet the challenge of city parking.
