Sunderland City Council has announced the deployment of a new Integrated Smart City Platform (ISCP), provided by Connexin, to enhance services and cement its position as a UK smart city leader. The solution will pool data sets across Adult Social Care, Council Tax, Anti-Social Behaviour, Environment Incidents & Health and Child Services from both the Council and will include third party data. This collated information will be aggregated and analysed to inform a collective and coordinated multi-agency response at the earliest point, whether that’s removing graffiti or helping people who are at risk or need support.
