Cityzenith, a leading Smart City data platform provider, is teaming up with GlobalLogic to implement its next-generation 5D Internet of Things platform for Smart Cities in India. Cityzenith is a U.S. software company based in Chicago that helps global organizations — from government departments to commercial enterprises — make sense of urban data, big and small.
Over the past year, 10 leading smart cities across 8 countries have adopted Cityzenith’s 5D Smart City™ platform, including Barcelona, Amsterdam, Chicago, San Francisco, London, Washington D.C., Dubai, and Singapore. As Cityzenith’s product engineering and delivery partner, GlobalLogic will help the company develop customised smart city solutions that address the Indian Smart City market’s unique needs.
5D Smart City™ helps cities connect, visualize, and manage their data, leveraging a next-generation interactive, intuitive, and real-time 3D simulation that anyone — from the mayor to an engineer in the field — can easily use. Users can point, click, tap, and swipe their way to the information they need in real-time with little or no training. Lightweight and flexible to suit any browser, the platform is designed to be open, non-proprietary, affordable, and works on standard PCs and tablets.
Cityzenith recently unveiled the 5D Smart City™version 3.0 to more than 10,000 attendees at the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona between November 17-19 (see figure 1). The event also had many Ministers of major Indian cities attend the conference and the launch.
The partnership between GlobalLogic and Cityzenith will provide the two companies all the skills, talents, and know-how necessary to deliver Cityzenith’s platform technology to all 100 cities earmarked for Smart City development by the Modi administration.
“We are excited to have this opportunity to develop and deliver cutting-edge solutions in partnership with Cityzenith” said Sumit Sood, Managing Director, GlobalLogic India. “Cityzenith’s 5D Smart City™ platform is the most mature and most widely adopted Smart City platform of its kind in the market today. Our collaboration will enable us to dramatically improve the quality of life by adapting the world’s best-in-class Smart City practices to suit the specific needs of Indian cities and their citizens.”
“As a leader in the global Smart City industry, we have been developing cutting-edge Smart City solutions for cities around the world for the past several years, customizing unique products for environmental monitoring, infrastructure management, and public safety.” notes Michael Jansen, Chairman and CEO, Cityzenith. “Having previously lived and worked in India for nearly 20 years, I have experienced life first-hand in every major Indian city and almost all of its 29 states, and am therefore acutely aware of the unique challenges facing Indian cities. India needs a platform to realize its mission to develop 100 Smart Cities. We have that platform. We are thrilled to be partnering with GlobalLogic to help India achieve its objective to become one of the smartest nations in the world.”
