Case in point, the City of Chicago. One person, one laptop, and MongoDB’s technology jumpstarted a project that, with other people joining in, went from prototype to one of the nation’s pioneering projects to analyze and act on municipal data in real time. In just four months. Called WindyGrid, this system is an intelligent operations platform built on MongoDB. What makes WindyGrid exceptional isn’t just that it pulls together seven million different pieces of data from city departments every day.
Copenhagen, Denmark, is aggressively moving towards becoming a smart, carbon-neutral city by 2025.
