Smart cities

Does your city gather real-time data?

Cities are working strongly on measuring data all around the city. This data is measured with different vendors but is often not yet combined on one platform. That’s where Sirus comes in. We combine your data on one software platform.

Gain insights with the Smart City Store

Sirus transforms the different data streams from your city’s data solutions such as smart garbage bins, smart traffic lights and smart weather sensors on one platform. We call this platform the Smart City Store. All this data is translated into one universal standard language so cities and civilians can access and understand the data on this software platform and make correlations about it. Hence, cities can compare data from different services, generate new insights and make thorough decisions based on this data.

How do we create your Smart City Project?

We start by thinking about the ICT architecture before developing a platform through consultancy. We look at the totality of data streams a city has, which are unique to every city. One city can measure data about the air quality while the other is measuring data from parking spots, so no project is 100% the same. Different activities are possible once we have set up the software platform. We can onboard the traditional data streams, make visualisations of this data or make correlations about it. We also offer device management where we look at the devices on your platform, how old they are, where they are and what the maintenance of those devices entails.

The journey of a Smart City project

Smart City Project

1. Business process ideation

What does your city want to achieve? What data streams are useful? What needs to be measured? What insights have to be attained?

2. RFP & vendor selection

We look at what data streams exist. Additionally one of our senior architects can offer advice on what other data can be measured. We also assist in the search for the appropriate vendor and write RFP’s.

3. Innovation roadmap

Based on all gathered input, we look at the next steps and create a logical and achievable plan of action.

4. ICT architecture

We start by looking at the foundation: How are the data streams of your company organized? How can we combine all your data on one platform so the information is clear and ready to use? The architecture is adapted to the specific needs and set-up of your city.

5. Platform building

With this platform it is possible to measure and make data available for cities and their civilians. This way a city can understand, for example, the impact of a low emission zone in their city.

It doesn’t matter what stage a city is in, we can offer support during every step of this journey. Ready to discover how your city can benefit from a Smart City implementation?
