Internet of Things poised to transform cities

Thor Olavsrud | Nov. 1, 2016
Local, state and federal government officials agree that smart cities initiatives, enabled by the Internet of Things (IoT), will deliver cost and operational efficiencies.

"Given the many layers of agencies, jurisdictions and constituencies, interest in data-driven decision-making is not surprising," Herbert says. "Even small improvements in empowering government workers with the right data at the right time can pay dividends."

CompTIA predicts that smart cities and IoT will especially affect waste management, the power grid and utilities and public safety over the next two to four years. Respondents also cited transportation (72 percent), transparency and open data (74 percent) and parks, recreation and the environment (74 percent).
