 IoT & Data Management 

Denver’s data management system is being constructed to support Denver Smart City portfolios and projects. Built for integration and interoperability, the IoT platform compiles real-time data on transportation, environmental health, weather, and freight. This drives smarter decision-making, emphasizing safety and security.

Early on, Denver identified the need for a comprehensive solution to connect multiple systems and data from across city departments. Our solution was our Enterprise Data Management (EDM) system, which is the foundation for a holistic approach to gathering, interpreting, and acting on data from across the city. The EDM system is tuned into a wide range of data from sensors of various types across the city and helps us gain a better understanding of the overall operations and services at work in our communities.

Our Enterprise Data Management System takes data from thousands of different sensors to provide real-time data to city employees. Data comes from resources like the traffic management center, police, bus, rail, road sensors, street lights, weather sensors, and universities. This equips Denver to improve the access and utilization of city services.

Our EDM system includes a map-based dashboard that incorporates data, such as air quality, traffic congestion, public safety, public health concerns, and more in real-time. The various pieces of information are consolidated into a single dashboard where information can easily be obtained and disseminated.

With such a vast amount of data, Denver will be able to look at data trends, helping to inform city planning decisions in the future. 

Denver is building algorithms into our software to provide actionable intelligence we can use to make decisions and provide city services where they have the largest impact and are most needed. This early-stage machine learning and AI will revolutionize the way we deliver services to our customers.
