Mauricio García Software IT Architect

2 Innovative leaders create opportunities from today’s harsh realities
Sustainability Investment Community Innovation Key Message: Today, harsh realities are forcing city leaders to change. Innovative leaders will use that mandate not only to cut costs, but to lead into the future. Speaking Points: There is no question that today’s environment poses many significant challenges for city leaders. Whether in emerging cities where populations are growing rapidly, or mature cities where leaders face economic challenges and population changes, city leaders face the harsh realities of scare resources and overwhelming demands Leaders must focus on using this time, when change is required to make ends meet, to make the decisions that not only help the city survive, but transform to drive enhanced innovation, increased investment, community engagement, and overall sustainability Additional Background Information: Concern about cities’ fiscal health remains at the highest level in the history of the National League of Cities’ 25-year survey on City Fiscal Conditions (2010 survey) An estimated 1 million people around the world are moving into cities each week; experts predict population in the world’s cities will double by 2050. Declining Budgets Increasing Threats Aging Infrastructure Changing Populations

3 With increasing experience, best practice patterns become visible
2006 2009 2010 Experienced: Traffic Management What data is most important? What analytics provide value? Which groups to coordinate? Identified: Repeatable Patterns Enhanced: Foundation for Reuse and Integration Government Industry Framework Integrates IBM and Partner solutions

4 IBM Intelligent Transportation Offering
Apply global best practices in your city IBM Intelligent Transportation Offering Provides citywide traffic visibility to alleviate congestion and rapidly respond to incident response Increase situational awareness across entire transportation network and city services (eg. emergency management response) Analyze traffic performance to improve travel experience Centralize monitoring and transit arrival prediction Key Message: Additionally, we are announcing the New IBM Intelligent Operations Center for Smarter Cities as the integrated solution that delivers the most repeatable best practice patterns to city leaders. Speaking Points: While many of the best practices that we harvested are valuable to specific solution areas such as public safety or transportation, there is a core group of best practice patterns that we saw in almost every city solution City leaders regularly leveraged these core capabilities to leverage information, anticipate problems, and coordinate resources. These core capabilities can help with projects that are contained fully within a single type of city service (such as optimizing transportation flows) or more broadly, spanning multiple services (such as coordinating emergency management) And the Intelligent Operations Center for Smarter Cities was designed to integrate with information and applications already contained within the city as well as to extend its capabilities by incorporating third-party solutions such as those pictured on this chart Sample Partner Ecosystem

5 Increase situational awareness across entire transportation network
Inspired by: Capture data from disparate sources to achieve citywide visibility into transportation conditions including: Traffic flow (ie. average speed, volume) Congestion Roadwork and road closures Accidents Integrates with IBM Intelligent Operations Center for cross agency collaboration and incident management Queensland Motorways The Need: Address increasing demand on roadways with 230,000 vehicles per day and reduce motorists’ time spent in traffic and vehicle emissions IBM Solution: The solution recommends fastest routes and avoid congestion. This helps to speed journeys, reduce congestion, and cut exhaust emissions. Drivers no longer have to stop to pay tolls, which reduces congestion, increases safety and enhances network reliability. Standards based integration with wide variety of instrumentation technologies and applications "The idea is to have 'a motorway that thinks' – a more intelligent solution that will give our customers a better range of options for their journeys." - Phil Mumford, CEO of Queensland Motorways

6 Analyze traffic performance to improve travel experience
Inspired by: Proactively manage and optimize traffic flow across the city through traffic prediction Enables public to receive forecast of traffic conditions so they can better plan their daily activities “What if” scenario analysis to understand traffic performance based on anticipated changes in traffic volume and conditions Singapore Land Transit Authority The Need: With Singapore’s population growing, the Singapore Land Transport Authority (LTA) needed a way to head off traffic congestion and maintain its world-class business climate IBM Solution: Singapore LTA can forecast traffic conditions up to 60 minutes into the future to help prevent traffic congestion before it occurs. “…use ridership data to develop more optimal routes, which ultimately will reduce congestion and make public transport more appealing.” - Silvester Prakasam, Director of Fare Systems, Singapore LTA

7 Centralize monitoring and transit arrival prediction
Identify vehicles and their current locations in real-time Estimate arrival time of vehicles based on current and predicted traffic conditions including: Public transportation vehicles Private fleets Vehicle and fleet performance analytics such as: Number of vehicles in a route Average transit time Inspired by: Finnish Transport Agency The Need: Agency is responsible for maintenance and development of Finnish Transport System. They wanted to gain a single view of road conditions, accidents and other road and traffic information IBM Solution: The solution has transformed 78,000 km. of roadways data into key insights helping to improve the efficiency of road management and enhance road safety and operational efficiency Customer reference in CRDB: Client Background: The Finnish Transport Agency is a government agency operating under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Transport and Communications. It is responsible for the maintenance and development of the transport system.     Business Need: The agency needs to maximize the value of large data volumes related to roadways. Specifically, the agency wants to: • Gain a single view of road conditions, accidents and other road and traffic information • Enhance organizational efficiency • Standardize and enhance reporting, and improve distribution of information across the agency • Transform raw data into organizational insights that can improve road safety • Increase the utility of information by displaying it on maps and associating it with pictures of the road network   Solution: The agency selected an IBM Cognos business intelligence (BI) solution to provide the reporting for an information tool named Tiira. IBM Cognos was selected because it helps create an open, service-oriented architecture that integrates well with the Esri geographic information system. The agency uses both standard and customized reports based on user-specified criteria.  Benefits of the Solution: Since implementing the new solution, the agency has: • Gained a unified view of roadway information • Identified potentially dangerous road sections and targeted those areas for maintenance • Enhanced operational efficiency by enabling staff, traffic experts and contractors to visualize accident information on maps • Reduced the time and cost of working with transportation experts and external consultants by simplifying access to important information What Makes it Smarter: • Transforms roadway data into key insights that can be gleaned from a unified view of information and visualized easily on maps, helping to improve the efficiency of road management and enhancing road safety • Draws on a tremendous amount of data on physical conditions, equipment and devices, and existing accidents on 78,000 km of roadways • Integrates roadway information from previously disparate, siloed information systems Additional Smarter Planet information: Intelligent: The solution creates a data warehouse and enables the agency to transform a large collection of roadway data into key insights that can help improve the efficiency of road management and enhance road safety. Information previously available only through disparate systems is delivered in a unified view. Users can generate standard or customized reports easily. And by integrating information with the Esri geographic information system, the agency also can display information on road conditions and accidents on easy-to-use maps. Instrumented: The solution draws on a tremendous amount of data on physical conditions, equipment and devices, and existing accidents on 78,000 km of roadways. Interconnected: The new solution integrates a wide range of roadway information previously accessible through separate systems, several of which required specialized skills to operate.  “…The benefit for drivers is safer and more fluid travel, and for the Transport Agency it is more efficient operations." - Kristiina Laakso, Finnish Transport Agency."

17 Deploy technology regardless of your size
Multiple options help city leaders deploy technology regardless of size On Premise: Build on workload optimized platforms Leverage infrastructure readiness services Shared Services: Work together across multiple cities Share services using preconfigured systems Cloud Delivery: Log on to your smarter city environment Customize interfaces, reports and data inputs Key Message: Finally, we are continuing to invest to provide options for city leaders to deploy technology regardless of their size. Speaking Points: Smarter cities capabilities can provide value to cities of all sizes. We are continuously focusing on creating options that are accessible to everyone. Traditionally, cities have used On Premise deployments to have complete flexibility over their solutions. We have invested to make these deployments even easier through the right infrastructure solutions and readiness assessments. Additionally, some cities are starting to develop relationships to share the infrastructure and services for their solutions. For examples, in the UK, cities such as Avon and Somerset are sharing infrastructure supporting certain city solutions that neither city would have invested in independently. We can help more cities consider this model with targeted consulting services to determine the right services to share, and systems designed explicitly for shared services environments. Finally, for the ultimate option in simplicity of service deployment, we are investing in Cloud Delivery models for many services. We will share more on these cloud models in a future call. “It’s about transforming the way we do business, so we can invest that money in front-line service delivery” Inspired By Chief Superintendent Avon & Somerset Police

18 Together we will create a planet of Smarter Cities
IBM is the right partner to help city leaders innovate to meet and exceed citizen expectations 100 years of experience making the world work better through the use of technology Real products to enable sustainable economic growth Leveraging information to make better decisions Anticipating problems to resolve them proactively Coordinating resources to operate effectively Local solutions based on global insight from countries Passion for cities demonstrated by volunteers for Smarter City Challenge grants Key Message: IBM is the right partner to help city leaders innovate to meet and exceed citizen expectations Speaking Points: We have a very unique position in the market and in the world today As most of you will know, IBM will be celebrating its Centennial in mid-June. That marks 100 years of making the world work better through the use of technology. We have been involved with many complex problems from the US Census to putting a human being on the moon to creating the airline reservations system, the barcode, a chess champion computer, and many other innovations. In all of these areas we have helped innovative leaders take on new challenges to transform the way the world works. Additionally we have very deep skills on these three sets of capabilities that are core to driving sustainable economic growth In anticipating problems alone we have spent over $14 billion in 25 analytics acquisitions and have more than 8,000 IBM business consultants dedicated to analytics and over 200 mathematicians are developing breakthrough algorithms inside IBM Research. We also conduct business in over 170 countries, enabling us to design local solutions with a perspective on the unique needs of each client. For example, we design solutions for cities in China based on experience and people in China. While we may apply global best practices, we never lose site of the unique needs of each city. Where some solutions may be perfectly acceptable in one region (e.g. Road User Charging to manage congestion in Europe) it may be completely unacceptable to the people of another region. Finally, as a company we are passionate about cities. You may have heard of the “Smarter Cities Challenge” program -- the the philanthropic project that the IBM Foundation kicked off to provide $50M in services and technology to 100 cities over 3 years. For each of those projects we need to identify a team of IBMers who will have to leave their families and fall behind in their day jobs for 3-4 weeks at a time to work in depth with these cities. Despite the obvious challenges associated with this prospect, and absolutely no incremental pay or incentive, the IBM Foundation is flooded with IBM applicants to volunteer for these engagements because they are passionate about making a real difference in our world. We have these 2,000 city projects behind us and have learned from each. Now we are ready to go forward and take those insights to help the next set of visionary leaders to make their cities more productive, more competitive and more dynamic by making them, in a word… Smarter. Thank you. Over 2,000 city projects leverage on IBM to help them transform into 21st century cities
