Serving as a dual purpose Open Data Portal and Smart City Datahub, the OpenDataSoft platform was designed for business users without technical knowledge. Without a line of code, they can cross-reference buses’ real-time positions with traffic data to calculate new routes on the fly. They can anticipate when to ship their stock by cross-referencing sales history with meteorological data.
The platform can be deployed on a cloud provider of a customer’s choice. Its SaaS model and extreme scalability enable small, medium and large governments, as well as companies and utilities, to easily open access (privately or publically) to IoT/M2M datasets containing hundreds of millions of rows.
To maximize the development of innovative new services from smart city data, the entire platform was also designed with an “API-first” philosophy, and includes an optional integrated monetization system.
