Our approach:
an open urban data platform
as the basis for your smart city strategy

So that you can master urban challenges.


[ui!] Approach

How can you promote digitalization in your community?

We support cities, communities, counties and regions in their efforts to collect, process and analyze all existing and anonymized urban data on a central data platform. We also help make this data available for new services as added value for cities, community and utility companies.

These solutions are based on an open urban data platform - the [ui!] UrbanPulse - where all data from a city's various IT systems are fed into a multitude of connectors, in order to be used for new smart city services in real-time.

[ui!] UrbanPulse enables the transparent visualization of all information about a city and makes it available for further use. The data sovereignty always remains with the client, for whom the data is being collected. The platform, therefore, not only provides integrated access to urban data, but it also prevents the risk of data misuse.

Data is not equal to data

The benefit of data, as well as its possible uses, depend largely on its degree of refinement. While raw data is merely a disorganized mass of data from which no direct conclusions can be drawn, structured data as information already lays the foundation for data analysis, from which concrete knowledge for new innovative services, as an added value for citizens, ultimately emerges.

Digital data as the basis for new value creation

raw materials for new beneficial services in the areas:
  • Traffic lights
  • Real-time geodata from public transport and railways
  • Integrated multifunctional street lighting
  • Real-time geodata from sharing providers (car, eBike, bicycle, eScooter)
  • Floating Car Data of vehicle fleets
  • APP-based geodata

Economic cycle "Digital data streams"

Creating "smart data" using platforms that have the following characteristics:
  • Low latency
  • Forecasting ability
  • Openness
  • Security
  • Standardized

What does data sovereignty mean?

As an owner of large amounts of urban data, you should ensure your data sovereignty with an integrated, open and real-time data platform, including the organization of analysis tools. This gives you an overview of all your data and its use at all times.

Existing and new urban data can therefore be used to create new benefits for your citizens.
