BARCELONA, Spain, Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- During Smart City Expo and World Congress, IBM (NYSE: IBM) and The Office for Urban Research and Statistics for Nuremberg and Furth today announced that it will use predictive analytics software from IBM to examine and derive intelligence from public data to simplify and improve decision-making for municipal administrators.

The Office for Urban Research and Statistics of Nuremberg and Furth provides statistics and conducts analyses that are vital for the future development of the German cities of Nuremberg and Furth. Through analyses, projections, and surveys the organization's urban research provides important decision making information to the community and its leaders. The statistical analyses conducted by the office support urban development topics such as integration, education, sustainability and demographic changes to the city.

IBM's software makes it possible to create an accurate data set for decision-making from the city's available records. The software monitors important indicators, going far beyond the possibilities of traditional spreadsheet software, to help the city identify weak points and develop recommendations for further action and resolution. Powerful automated functions boost the department's efficiency and give its staff more time for other tasks.

"The number of tasks that local authority statistics departments deal with is constantly growing," explains Thomas Nirschl, Scientific Employee at the Office for Urban Research and Statistics. "IBM's predictive analytics software enables us to automate routine tasks so that we can make more efficient use of scarce municipal resources and free up time to dedicate resources to new projects."

The Office for Urban Research and Statistics organizes data obtained from regional and municipal statistics, analyzes and enriches that data, and then makes it available to other users. The office is also able to extract existing information contained in administrative registers for further research and analysis.
