Readiness Cities - Cary

“Making more data-driven decisions is integral to the future of Cary, not just within the function of the government but also for civic engagement and transparency.” — Cary Mayor Harold Weinbrecht

With a rapidly-growing population, Cary has been investing in smarter infrastructure and innovative approaches to grow sustainably and profitably. Cary will use the Smart Cities Council's Readiness Workshop to further advance several of its projects, including "One Cary”, a single core platform that provides a 360-degree view of the city and shares data between departments and with citizens.

Jarrett Campbell from Aveva and I have taught smart city workshops together. Jarret is a great story teller and holds our audience interest's when he talks about how he made his home smart and also how the Town of Cary, NC (one of the Council's 2018 Readiness Challenge Winners) has implemented smart metering systems for water management. His stories are real-world, giving us a clear example of 'how' any city can use smart technologies.
