)-- The new Ecocyn's ecoCity City platform will help agencies of all sizes use new energy saving technologies to transform their existing support and delivery processes, allowing them to more efficiently deploy limited resources and respond more quickly to everything from public emergencies to the delivery of social services. The Framework is a base software platform that is enriched by the contributions of independent software developers who use it as a foundation to build unique applications that address particular issues across government.
Globally, challenges such as changing demographics, security concerns and lower tax revenues are placing unprecedented demands on the government infrastructures that deliver vital services such as social services, healthcare, education and public safety. Demographics show that cities and municipalities in particular are experiencing a population explosion of new residents, placing additional strain on governments to meet the needs of its constituencies. At the heart of Ecocyn's business transformation strategy is the recognition that the increasingly instrumented world and the boundless possibilities offered by technology can help all organizations, including government, reach new levels of energy efficiency. In all of this, the traditional definition of "workstation" has been expanded to include hand-held devices that enable workers to connect remotely with their colleagues and interact with sensors, video and other information gathering technology embedded in everything from buildings and machines to vehicles, traffic signals and utilities.
Just as businesses have strengthened their focus on customers, cities are now finding success in reorienting their structures, information technology and processes around the citizens they serve. For example, a future city can use the new framework as the basis for a first-of-its-kind system for real-time client overviews and activities.
Future cities can expect similar benefits in other parts of their operations. For example, ecoCity can be deployed to better manage traffic congestion, thus reducing carbon emissions. By improving the flow of information and the processes that trigger the deployment of resources, vehicles can be re-routed as problems arise. Similarly, the advanced technology contained in the framework can improve communications and resource allocation among first-responders in emergency situations.
This latest offering from Ecocyn is backed by the new Industry Framework Business Partner Validation Program for Government, which will oversee and support partner activity in generating government software solutions. Third-party software application developers will have open access to the base platform contained in the Framework, allowing them to customize their own software to work with this technology. In all, Ecocyn has more than 42,000 registered independent software vendors, many of whom develop applications.
