Unisys and Microsoft Invest in Smart Cities
Author(s): Nick Miles, Posted on November 3rd, 2014
Come and see us @ the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona – 18-20 November ‘14
We’ll be joining Microsoft on its booth in the Smart City Plaza – alongside other CityNext partners – at the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona, where representatives from more than 300 cities around the world will debate issues relating to sustainable and efficient metropolitan development.
It’s believed that for the first time in history, more than 50 percent of the world’s population lives in urban areas and, by 2050, nearly 70 percent of people will live in cities. Naturally, this intensifies problems such as aging infrastructure, hazards to public health and safety, pollution, crime, traffic and delivering digital services to the public and local government as and when they need them.
Unisys is committed to solving these problems, and delivering value to urban environments, with a range of highly innovative solutions including:
- Unisys Law Enforcement Application Framework (U-LEAF) is being used by major police agencies to solve complex investigations and for intelligence investigations in national security environments.
- Unisys Secure Image Management Solution (SIMS) to process digital evidence and provide a secure ‘digital evidence vault’ for images and multimedia files for business, policing and law enforcement agencies
- Unisys Justice Connect Framework to enable government agencies to quickly create integrated information sharing across their legacy systems.
- Citizen Interaction Solution (CIS) to connect governments, businesses and citizens with dynamic civic services that increase efficiencies and reduce costs.
- Ensemble Unified Communication to transform organisations and the way they communicate via collaborative tools, voice and digital services.
- Unisys Cloud Advisory Services for organisations looking for strategic guidance in the moving workloads to the Microsoft Azure cloud.
If you are planning to attend Smart City Expo World Congress and you would like to speak to us about solutions for your city please contact Joana Joglar or Teresa Salcedas to arrange. We’ll be located within Microsoft’s booth in Smart City Plaza, The Expo Area, Hall 2. We look forward to seeing you at the show!
