KPN facilitates real time data exchange across silo’s (city departments) and between service providers who may have alternative focus areas in order to achieve more value for all.
The expansion in digital initiatives requires the tools that allow parties to maintain in control and enables them to achieve more return on these investments. Often the attention is on the single purpose an initiative is intended to achieve. At KPN we believe you can obtain valuable insights from combining these single purpose solutions. KPN has developed a platform that enables cities to orchestrate its digital initiatives as a whole. We call it the Data Services Hub. Parties on our platform (we distinguish data suppliers, information producers and application developers) focus on their core competencies and join forces to achieve use cases. Once ‘onboarded’ the Data Services Hub allows these parties to distribute their service to many without further efforts. The internet of things provides more data every day and real time data is becoming more and more prominent. Powerful tools are needed to process the ever growing data streams in order to take (automated) measures. KPN’s platform has been developed to process large amounts of (near) real-time data, making it particularly suitable for situations where direct analysis of the current situation is important such as mobility solutions and security & safety issues.
