The purpose of the “Smart City” is to have an online platform which makes the life of citizens easier. This is a web based project which will be implemented for the IBM Software Academy 2010. It is related to the city management in order to create a web based smart city. Touristic guide, places to see, news, jobs, public transportation and other facilities are the main idea of this project. The “Smart City” is a web portal where all the public and expert functions come together in one place by sharing and solving ideas. In the same time, it will be the face of the city by showing detailed scenery of every aspect which takes place in the real life. The mobile solutions make the reach to the system easier and faster by being connected everywhere.


This project's scope is to connect together with other platforms and use data everywhere. Any data source, that can help to extract information about the city, should be tracked and kept connected to the smart city platform. This platform is expected to act as the center of the city where all the information is presented here. Using SOA all the connections are made possible between different platforms and systems. Health care, transportation, education, police departments, government and all the parts of the city are planned to be connected here in order to have an “ALL in ONE” portal to make the life easier. The design is done using open principles in order to make it easier to expand and include everywhere.

  1. I'm amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that's equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt,
    you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that too few men and women are speaking intelligently
    about. I am very happy that I came across this in my hunt
    for something regarding this.

  2. I know this website presents quality depending posts and extra information, is there
    any other site which provides these kinds of things in quality?
