"We have a vision of making Gdynia a smarter city by providing sophisticated services to our citizens," said Wojciech Szczurek, Mayor of Gdynia. "The new virtual assistant is an important step in that direction and provides our citizens with a convenient option of using their computers or smart phones to get the information they need instead of going to city hall."
Cloud computing provides a powerful option for municipal governments who wish to deploy new services quickly, securely and cost effectively with the flexibility to expand or deploy new applications in the future. The eight Polish cities will benefit from InteliWISE's app and the IBM SmartCloud, which will ensure optimal speed and continuity of operations, without the need for the municipal authorities to install new physical IT infrastructure.
With its analytics capabilities, the IBM SmartCloud helps store data generated through various virtual assistant interactions, enabling the application to be continually improved and expanded.
