The President of India, Pranab Mukherjee will inaugurate an Intelligent Operations Centre (IOC) in Rashtrapati Bhavan and launch a Mobile App ‘Monitor’ for transformation of President’s Estate into a smart township at a function to be held at Rashtrapati Bhavan tomorrow (May 19, 2016).
The IOC is a software solution designed by IBM which helps collect and make sense of the rich data streaming in from several sources within the Estate to provide intelligent insights. It offers integrated data visualization, near real-time collaboration and deep analytics that will help agencies prepare for problems, coordinate and manage response efforts and enhance efficiency of services.
The “Monitor” mobile application is a Residents collaboration tool of the Intelligent Operation Center. This will help residents and domain (Energy, Water, Horticulture, Waste and Security) supervisors to collaborate in a smarter way for their observations. It will enable residents to report issues such as broken street lights, electricity failure, water wastage etc and check resolution status using their mobile devices. This mobile application will allow residents to report these issues using their mobile devices in the Estate on a real time basis. These reported observations can be used to provide enough details such as location coordinates, address etc to concerned departments. This will help the residents of the Estate become more socially responsible, aware and collaborative.
