Overview
Bottom rule

Cities and regional governments face the dual challenges of providing improved services to citizens and businesses while reducing the burden on citizens. Cities must ensure tax revenue is collected fairly and consistently. In addition, cities must ensure that services are provided to citizens with the least disruption to their daily lives. In the austere economic times facing many cities today, it is also crucial for agencies to reduce their internal operation costs.

IBM Intelligent City Planning and Operations V1.5 is designed to help cities reduce their costs by streamlining operations and planning processes. In addition, IBM Intelligent City Planning and Operations helps cities identify sources of missed revenue as well as unnecessary costs that cities can reclaim to improve their income.

With IBM Intelligent City Planning and Operations, city organizations can analyze data from multiple data sources in order to identify unlicensed businesses, which can help achieve the following benefits:

Whether a city is growing rapidly or struggling with budgetary restrictions, or both, the IBM Intelligent City Planning and Operation solution helps city governments optimize their business and citizen services.

Description
Bottom rule

IBM Intelligent City Planning and Operations V1.5 is designed to allow cities to visualize and review information concerning businesses from multiple data sources. This allows analysts to identify patterns that identify businesses operating in the city without the proper licensing. In addition, once patterns are identified, they may be saved and reused in future searches. IBM Intelligent City Planning and Operations V1.5 can then be configured to map the resulting incidences of improperly licensed businesses on a map of the city to assist investigators in identifying geo-spatial patterns of incidents allowing the city to prioritize resources needed to resolve the issues. The geo-spatial analysis also allows cities to properly target activities aimed at reducing improperly licensed businesses, such as advertising campaigns. Once a potential violation is identified, standard operating procedures will coordinate the resolution to ensure fair, consistent, and complete resolution. Finally, executive status views will allow city managers to monitor performance of efforts to resolve unlicensed business.

To support the analysis, data can be presented in a number of ways including:

This flexible data approach, which may require some configuration depending upon the data source, helps enable the investigations team to respond to the time-critical requirements of fraud. By knowing how the fraud was perpetrated, internal IT and operational controls can be tightened to help disrupt and potentially prevent future fraud attacks.

Cities must provide expanding services to their citizens while reducing the burden they place on citizens in the form of taxes and process. IBM Intelligent City Planning and Operations helps cities to control costs and increase revenue by streamlining business operations, improving coordination across departments in the city, assisting with planning, and using business analytics to identify sources of missed revenue.

IBM Intelligent City Planning and Operations is designed to help cities identify unlicensed business in order to claim license and tax revenue, and to ensure businesses have proper oversight. The following features support this:

Licensing metric definitions

Concurrent User

Concurrent User is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. A Concurrent User is a person who is accessing the program at any particular point in time. Regardless of whether the person is simultaneously accessing the program multiple times, the person counts only as a single Concurrent User. The program may be installed on any number of computers or servers, but licensee must obtain entitlements for the maximum number of Concurrent Users simultaneously accessing the program. Licensee must obtain an entitlement for each simultaneous Concurrent User accessing the program in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means.
Note: Some programs may be licensed where devices are considered users. In that case the following applies. Any computing device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from the program or that is otherwise managed by the program is considered a separate user of the program and requires an entitlement as if that device were a person.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered destroyed or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
