Smart money is on the Mission Control solution for smart cities projects

Modern smart cities present complex challenges

Today many cities turn to smart city solutions to improve quality of life for their residents, and to attract more tourism and business. However, implementing smart city solutions on existing infrastructures is expensive and complex. Cities cannot stop providing services while they are upgrading infrastructure and implementing new procedures. Also, modern infrastructures are a patchwork of various solutions and vendors, each working with a different operational paradigm. Finally, many cities work with constrained budgets and must show adequate ROI for their smart city project in some areas before they can expend these kinds of projects to all other areas. Because of these factors, smart city projects are complex challenges in any environment.

Complex challenges require smart solutions

The inherent challenges to smart city projects require a tool that can meet these challenges. The proper tool for a smart city project must support incremental, partial, continuous rollouts, and implementations, since these projects tend to be implemented over different areas, at different times. Because implementation is probably going to be contained to a specific department or domain of operations, integration with existing systems is key. This allows the new system to operate alongside, and with, existing systems. Also, solutions with strong integration capabilities or more beneficial to modern cities, since modern cities have layers of infrastructures, that contain systems and solutions from different times and administrations. If a new solution limits the city to a specific vendor, a specific technology, it would be too expensive and cumbersome to be effective.

Mission Control is the Smartest Solution

Mission Control is a multi-featured platform that can be easily tailored to the specific needs of any smart city project. The platform’s modular design means the project can expend with its success and supports incremental and continuous rollouts. The platform is incredibly robust and includes tools that support integration with many different technologies. With these tools, customers can expect the system to continue the existing function of legacy systems, in addition to the new features of the smart city project. Automatic systems and mobile options reduce labor and streamline procedures, which allows for a quick ROI, demonstrating the worth and validity of the project. Customers pay only for the features they need, building the best version of the platform for their project. With Mission Control, your smart city project has the best chance for success.
