Organizations Partner to Advance Smart Cities and Smart Spaces
SAN FRANCISCO – September 19, 2019 – VANTIQ, the company that powers the real-time business, today announced that it has joined the Colorado Smart Cities Alliance. The first of its kind, the Alliance is a coalition of Colorado municipalities, federally funded research labs, educational institutions and leading private sector technology companies. Alliance members seek to build partnerships, pilot new smart-cities technologies and improve Colorado communities through increased economic opportunities, better public safety and sustainability, and improved growth management and planning.
As a technology adviser and partner in the Colorado Smart Cities Alliance, VANTIQ will advise, consult and co-develop solutions to help Colorado municipalities fuel innovation, solve local challenges and improve smart city development. They will do so through the use of data-driven insights derived from the internet of things (IoT), big data, advanced analytics and video intelligence technologies and solutions. VANTIQ membership in the Colorado Smart Cities Alliance is another example of the company’s work to advance smart-city initiatives.
“VANTIQ offers an ideal platform for building real-time and event driven applications that are critical to the success of smart city and smart building initiatives. We joined the Colorado Smart Cities Alliance to help the organization improve access for Colorado municipalities to technologies and solutions that make life better in the digital age,” said VANTIQ CEO and co-founder Marty Sprinzen.
“The challenges facing cities today are so complex that no one city, company or research institution can solve them on their own,” said Tyler Svitak, executive director of the Colorado Smart Cities Alliance. “This complexity requires the type of cross-jurisdictional and public or private collaboration that we facilitate through the Alliance. The global reach of technology partners like Hitachi Vantara and Arrow Electronics allows us to bring the leading technology solutions in the world to bear on these complex challenges. We are honored to have both of them in our corner as we work to fundamentally improve quality of life for Colorado residents.”
VANTIQ, the company that powers the real-time business, provides the only truly agile platform for creating transformative, event-driven applications. Founded in 2015 by renowned tech industry veterans Marty Sprinzen and Paul Butterworth, VANTIQ enables significantly lower development and maintenance costs, and provides maximum agility in response to constantly-changing business requirements.
