Why Smart Cities Need an Event-Driven Architecture

Businesses and government entities are using smart city technologies to improve targeted operational areas such as traffic management, waste management, parking, smart lighting, and more. While many of these efforts will likely deliver short-term success, the organizations deploying them may be limited in future efforts due to the use of outdated architectures. What’s needed is an event-driven architecture (EDA) that will allow those developing smart city initiatives to reap success today, while enabling innovative applications and collaborative efforts with other smart city projects in the future. In this special report, sponsored by VANTIQ, you’ll learn: 

  • The common demands of modern smart city applications
  • The distinct benefits of an event-driven architecture
  • Common use cases and real-world examples
  • What to look for when selecting an EDA platform
