IBM and Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) has announced the completion of a digital plan for Dighi Port Industrial Area, Maharashtra.

The Integrated Communication Technology (ICT) Master Plan for Dighi Port Industrial Area, Maharashtra developed by IBM provides a futuristic roadmap for the area including the use of technology to deliver services to business and citizens such as monitoring energy consumption, traffic visualization, improved water management, and enhanced public safety.

Using IBM’s Smarter Cities software, the Intelligent Operations Center, a command center will be established to integrate and interconnect information from various departments and agencies throughout the city to improve safety, prevent and anticipate problems, and improve the quality of life for citizens.

“We are pleased to have IBM as one of the key partners for this project to develop a city based on international standards in close proximity to Dighi Port. This will enhance economic growth, global competitiveness, social inclusion, and environmental sustainability in select cities,” said Amitabh Kant, CEO and MD, Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC).

“With IBM’s Smarter Cities knowledge and rich, proven experience, we believe that we can efficiently realize our vision which will help provide best in class citizen services and better living conditions. It will also help enable governance of the city in real time,” added Kant.

This master plan developed by IBM incorporates the management of clean water, energy, transportation, public safety, education, and healthcare, allowing the essential key services of the city to be managed more effectively using smart devices, sensors and intelligent communications.

Large amount of Big Data streaming from these devices will be connected to a Central Command Center where city administrators can record and respond to events quickly and in a more coordinated manner.

The roadmap also makes recommendations to help DMICDC find ways to reduce costs, power usage, increase efficiency and improve quality of management across the township.

“This project provides the foundation to use technology in new ways to drive economic development, job growth and improve the quality of life for citizens,” said Rahul Sharma, executive director, partner & Smarter Cities leader, Global Business Services, IBM India/South Asia.
