ATIS Releases Smart Cities Data Sharing Report
Thursday, March 01, 2018 | Comments

The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) released its Data Sharing Framework for Smart Cities, which provides recommendations to help smart cities develop the data sharing ecosystem needed to deliver value from their smart cities data.

The release marks the launch of an ATIS initiative to engage cities, towns, counties or municipalities in exploring and collaborating to learn how to use the framework to realize the opportunities inherent in the data they are generating.

For cities to maximize their technology investments, and for the data they collect to deliver value to citizens, their data must be shared securely among governments and trusted agencies as well as with the commercial sector and application developers. Yet, this sharing capability is not an integral part of most cities' data platforms. Platforms being designed must meet future demands of real-time applications, data ownership issues, privacy and secure data exchange.

“While Smart Cities infrastructure is essentially the engine for innovative applications, data will act as the fuel, accelerating cities toward their intended citizen-centric vision,” said ATIS President and CEO Susan Miller. “ATIS sees the ability to efficiently and securely share vast amounts of real-time data as a key component to a Smart City's future success. We are pleased to contribute the data sharing framework to make this happen.”

The report is available at here.
