As governments begin deploying "smart city" systems, several IoT/M2M network standards are competing for deployment. This makes interoperation either expensive (multiple base radios) or fiscally inefficient (wasting of taxpayer dollars) as non-standard systems are later replaced. Analysts have noted that deployment of non-standardized smart city systems could waste over $340 billion dollars during the next decade. Rather than approach each city as a separate project, leaders in urban areas must share information and come to agreement on a regional strategy.
This panel will feature city and county CIOs from discussing the challenges of regional IoT/M2M coordination. Discussion of challenges in educating municipal employees, and in balancing realities of city/county management against political aspirations by elected officials will also take place. The panel will end with a set of recommendations based on panel discussion for future action.
The panel will be moderated by Joint Venture Silicon Valley.
Target CIOs: City of San Jose, City of Mountain View, City of Sunnyvale, City of Palo Alto, City of Cupertino, City & County of San Francisco, County of San Mateo, County of Santa Clara.
