City as a Platform

The City as Platform program is an exciting initiative that aims to create aligned Internet of Things (IoT) platforms across Birmingham. By enabling interoperability, data capture, and sensor deployment, we will revolutionize the way services are adopted and innovated upon. This ambitious project will transform Birmingham into a leading digital city, paving the way for advancements in various sectors. With improved efficiency and reduced costs in housing repairs, we will enhance the user experience for both service teams and residents. Our Data Charter will enable easy and wider data sharing, fostering cross-sector collaboration and supporting innovation, particularly within Council services. Additionally, our partnership will establish a joint venture to define, accelerate, and deploy full fiber deployment options across the entire city. Together, we will shape the future of Birmingham’s digital infrastructure, making it a vibrant hub of technological progress.
