Teradata is working with Cisco on a digital transformation platform with a focus on smart cities and communities. The platform combining Cisco’s IoT platform, Cisco Kinetic for Cities, with the Teradata Analytics Platform, to help cities become smarter and more connected by providing a powerful system for integrated data exchange. The Cisco Kinetic for Cities platform collects, aggregates and normalises real-time data securely across city networks. Such a combined platform could, for example, automatically detect security incidents and generate alerts, locate traffic bottlenecks and optimise signals to ease congestion or evaluate route options to shorten emergency vehicle response time.

Teradata said it's among the first enterprise data analytics companies to integrate with this platform to provide smart data management, such as analytics, persistent data lifecycle management and data enrichment, that delivers business insights to cities and communities. Together, the two companies provide powerful tools that cities need to improve efficiency, enhance public safety, deliver better citizen services and create new revenue streams.
