Tongliao City will take advantage of IBM's cloud computing, networking and other advanced information technologies to enable local industries to move to cloud computing. As a result, the city will be able to innovate and transform its industries, helping to stimulate economic growth in the region. Tongliao City will use IBM PureSystems as the core platform for cloud computing as part of this project.

Tongliao City is located northwest of Beijing in China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and has historically been known for its vast grasslands and livestock herds; however the discovery of abundant natural resources has led to rapid growth and industrial development. Faced with the challenge of creating a technology infrastructure that can help transform its traditional agrarian industrial base while also providing the logistics required to deliver the modern eGovernment services demanded by its citizens, the Tongliao Municipal People's Government turned to IBM.

"We are very pleased to collaborate with the leading IT companies such as IBM and Xi'an Future International Information Co. Ltd. not only to promote the innovation of the region's industries but also the development of emerging technologies such as mobile communications, cloud computing, the Internet of Things and high-performance computing. Through the Smarter Cities project in Tongliao City, we are confident that the livelihood of our citizens can be improved as well," said Mr. XU Yalin, vice mayor, Tongliao Municipal People's Government.

Tongliao City's multi-faceted Smarter Cities project is in line with the country's twelfth five-year plan, which includes the promotion of the next-generation Information Technology to drive the city's economic transformation and industrial upgrading.
