Metropolis – digital Urban Infrastructure Management Platform

Active planning, implementation and monitoring of intelligent services in the city

Support for the management of modern cities is the ISO 37120 standard, which introduces order and standardization of concepts within the debate on the definition of a “Smart City”. This standard defines 17 quality of life areas in cities and agglomerations based on 100 clearly defined coefficients.

A solution that supports efficient and modern city management in the context of the above mentioned standard is the Metropolis Platform, which is part of the idea of sustainable urban development:

  • it integrates urban services and technologies into one central system;
  • improves the coordination of the work of municipal services;
  • enables active public participation in the provision and reception of information.

The challenges of the modern city are:

  • increasing number of people migrating to cities, requirements for improving the quality of life of the society;
  • management of growing urban traffic;
  • guaranteed high level of safety;
  • integration of and access to existing public information systems.

Being smart means improving the quality of life from year to year in all seemingly independent areas. The true intelligence of the city is sustainable development in all areas over the years.

Cloud computing in the public, private or hybrid model – Cloud Computing is a model for sharing IT resources in the form of finished, pre-configured services. It provides immediate access to the service, dynamic scalability and a flexible model of settlement at a high level of standardization (catalog of services). Available service sharing models:

  • Public cloud – provision of standard IT services (mail, database, application servers) for many recipients via the Internet
  • Private cloud – provision of standard IT services for the inner purposes of an organization
  • Hybrid cloud – a combination of specific services provided within the organization (private cloud) with the computational power available in the public cloud. Types of services offered as a part of the product: (Infrastructure as a Service, (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS).
