Rising urbanization and upward of a billion vehicles in operation across the world have brought unprecedented levels of traffic and congestion to our major towns and cities. On the frontline are the emergency dispatchers and responders. Every day, they face complex challenges as they attempt to navigate through congested traffic, unexpected road closures and work zones in a timely manner. It is therefore vital for the real-time information they receive to be as accurate and fresh as possible, so that crucial, split-second decisions can be taken correctly, enabling all designated units to reach the incident location as fast as possible.

Mountains of data promise valuable insights and innovation for businesses that rethink and redesign their system architectures. But companies that don’t re-architect might find themselves scrambling just to keep from being buried in the avalanche of data. The problem is not just in storing raw data, though. For businesses to stay competitive, they need to quickly and cost-effectively access and process all that data for business insights, research, artificial intelligence (AI), and other uses. Both memory and storage are required to enable this level of processing, and companies struggle to balance high costs against limited capacities and performance constraints. The challenge is even more daunting because different types of memory and storage are required for different workloads. Furthermore, multiple technologies might be used together to achieve the optimal tradeoff in cost versus performance. Intel is addressing these challenges with new memory and storage technologies that emp

Smartphones, smart cities, smart homes, smart cars—IoT has triggered a data explosion, and not every enterprise is prepared to handle it. Beyond collecting and analyzing the increasing volume of data, organizations must figure out how to manage the velocity of that data, as well as how to integrate it with multiple data sources. And that’s just scratching the surface of the IoT challenge. To extract business value out of this inpouring of data, and to take full advantage of IoT boosted by new 5G technology, IT organizations must consider five key technologies. In this ebook, you’ll learn about these five technologies and their benefits. To continue to develop and scale your IoT-driven applications, your infrastructure needs to be able to handle sensor data at velocity, keep data close to the edge, maintain 100% uptime, and make it easy to extract business value. The insights you’ll discover in this ebook will not only help you prepare your organization for this reality; they’ll also

City leaders around the world are working to improve the quality of life and increase the number of useful services for their citizens, businesses, and visitors. Smart city initiatives are gaining attention in several countries, as administrators, industry, and citizens are working together to enhance their communities, cities, regions, and nations. After more than ten years of smart city hype, innovative projects have emerged, but few have provided a disruptive impact on the city system itself. Because every city is different, few of the existing models apply universally. An effective response requires leaders to consider a series of prerequisites: consider the local culture and the people, prioritize basic needs and requests, work at overcoming silos and encourage collaboration across departments, and consider each “smart” initiative as an integral part of an overall city system. A smart city reflects a number of aspirations: efficiency, resiliency, connectedness, innovation, and su

This paper examines how cities are using cloud technology to address public challenges, using the framework of the global coalition, Smart Cities Council. This framework promotes three core values for smart cities: livability, providing clean, healthy living conditions without pollution and congestion; workability, providing an enabling infrastructure (energy, transportation, internet connectivity) and high-quality jobs; and sustainability, doing so at no cost to future generations, as the Council puts it. This paper proposes a fourth core value, inclusivity: provisioning services to all city residents regardless of their background.

Local authorities continue to search for ways to improve society – to increase economic growth and social mobility, and to address environmental goals through the regeneration of town centres and regions. Technology, as ever, undoubtedly plays a role in this transformation, but creating the ‘smart city’ of the future is more than simply adopting digital; at its core, a smart city uses technology to solve problems and improve citizen experiences. Global ‘smart city’ revenue is expected to grow to $88.7bn and, with its ability to deliver better public services, efficiently and sustainably, it’s no wonder. The economic impact of smart cities cannot be understated and, as the UK continues to tackle the uncertainty of its departure from the European Union (EU), it is critical that the needs of business are met. “Businesses need smart cities, or the innovation they represent, to thrive in a world where traditional industries are getting disrupted every day.”To facilitate this, it is vita

Loss of life in traffic death accidents in the U.S. is on the same scale as 25 full Boeing 747s crashing and leaving no survivors, in six months. It is a stark statistic which explains why the US Department of Transportation and the National Safety Council want to eliminate traffic deaths in the US within 30 years with their Road to Zero campaign. HERE location intelligence already supports more than half of the new elements included in the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) guidance on crash reporting In the U.S. alone HERE currently works with more than 20 departments of transport and several large cities on improving traffic safety. As the world’s leading location platform, HERE also supports the global drive to Vision Zero.

A surge in new petrochemical production capacities across China, mainly for paraxylene, is likely to be the key factor that will heavily impact the sector globally, with US-China trade tensions next in line. Both factors have the potential to cause disruptions and change trade flows, while triggering fluctuations in margins. Volatile upstream markets, such as crude oil and naphtha, are not making these markets any more predictable either, and 2019 is set to be a year full of challenges. This special outlook report takes an in-depth look at the key themes expected to shape key Asian petrochemical markets in the months ahead.
