Author | Jaime RamosIt is 30 years since the company Maxis launched the famous city building simulation video game SimCity. At around the same time, Tim Berners-Lee unveiled his global IT network proposal, known by its initials WWW. This temporal coincidence is very useful to illustrate how, as part of their digital evolution, cities need a music director to synchronise the millions of instruments they play simultaneously.It is what is known as Big Data. Understanding and controlling information marks a fundamental difference in the development of smart cities. This is being achieved via the mechanisms offered by the Internet of Things or IoT platform.Just as in 1989 the first SimCity players played to become gods creating a city that carried their signature, existing platforms manage to unify the administration of a countless variety of public services in order to make them more efficient, sustainable, productive, useful, predictable… In short, smarter.
