IBM-Rio de Janeiro Intelligent Operations Center

The new Operations Center in R...

Centro de Operacoes Rio, where managers monitor dozens of data feeds for information concerning weather, traffic, police, and medical services on a real-time basis, anticipating looming problems. By coordinating the activities of more than 30 municipal and state departments–plus private utility and transportation companies–the operations center is the first such facility in the world that is on the path toward the integration of all city functions with a single digital command-and-control system. The facility embodies the principle that only by considering and coordinating the human-made and natural systems of a city in a holistic way can municipal leaders hope manage the complexities of a large, modern city.
