EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This report helps senior executives within the urban development ecosystem and public sector authorities to understand new products and services that aim to curb the environmental impact of urban communities. On June 6, 2011, IBM publicly launched its Intelligent Operations Center, a software product designed to help city authorities and agencies address the growing pressures on urban systems amidst current resource constraints. IBM’s Intelligent Operations Center proposes to help cities create a central repository for the disparate data on their resources in order to identify areas for collaboration or where there is a duplication of efforts between city services, helping to increase operational efficiency and reduce costs. To ensure its investments to create and demonstrate smart and sustainable city capabilities turn into concrete market opportunities, IBM needs to develop a flexible financing model to engage cities and to forge strategic alliances across the urban development value.
