TCS Digital Software & Solutions (DS&S) group has released ‘Intelligent Urban Exchange (IUX)’, an analytics-based software solution for intelligent city operations to help address growing expectations of digitally connected, urban citizens.
The IUX solution is a highly scalable, modular software that combines big data and domain specific advanced analytics to provide cities with real-time, actionable insights. In turn, it delivers cost-effective operations on a common platform across essential city domains, such as transportation, water, energy, and government operations.
The solution, which will be made available through strategic partnerships with the Digital Software & Solutions group, offers customized city data models for the accelerated deployment of smart city programs. It collects and analyzes data from multiple sources, including networks, sensors, social media, and open city data, and applies real-time analytics to deliver insights for city officials to help increase citizen satisfaction.
“Our strategic partners are already finding value with the solution to leverage data within and across domain specific applications and develop local apps that will accelerate smart city programs, provide a flexible platform to fuel future growth, and create a more enjoyable experience for urban dwellers,” said Seeta Hariharan, General Manager and Group Head of TCS’ DS&S group.
The first available application on the TCS IUX solution is for transportation and delivers a comprehensive analytic application for city transport administrators and bus operators to improve ridership, service levels and fleet utilization. It includes real-time insight and trend analysis of passenger demand and service parameters, such as wait times, queue build-up, ridership, and revenue realization across various routes and schedules to create adaptive planning for more effective public transportation services. Future IUX applications will focus on urban utilities, such as Intelligent Water to promote conservation, and support partners to address issues in water loss, leakage and infrastructure upgrades to ensure safe and reliable delivery of water to communities.
