Smart Spaces, Cities Provide Partner Sales Opportunity

AvatarWritten by | Edge & IoT

We are always looking for safer, smarter spaces and cities – and now they are becoming a reality with all the new IoT “smart” technologies that are being developed.

Smart spaces are urban, commercial, and industrial areas that use video, IoT, analytics, and AI technologies to deliver insights to people, buildings, and machines to make organizations more effective and improve our quality of life. Smart spaces leverage data, innovation, and intelligent machines to bring operational business and security intelligence to the places where we work, play, and live.

Here are just a few examples of smart spaces at work:

  • Transportation: Keeps operations on-time and safe. Includes things like demand and people-flow sensing, dynamic vehicle dispatch, real-time alerts, and safety coordination.
  • Retail: Promotes successful and secure environments. Provides for A/B testing for brink-and-mortar stores, customer behavior insights and response, and a personalized customer experience.
  • Airport: Supports convenience and safety. Promotes efficient, smooth passenger flow; excellent service and operations; and safe travelers.
  • Factory: Boosts efficiency and safety. Advances worker safety and productivity, product quality, and minimizes operating costs and waste.

A smart city is the digital transformation of an urban ecosystem to meet environment, financial, and other social outcomes. The goal of a smart city is to build safer, smarter communities through integrated intelligence by being aware of all situations.

Smart spaces and smart cities are providing strong opportunities for Arrow partners and suppliers across multiple verticals – resulting in near-term high growth.
