The Cityzenith Strategic Advisory Council is a network of experts with diverse backgrounds that span the fields of politics and government, smart cities, smart buildings, real estate, utilities, telecom, technology, and sustainability.
Cityzenith announced recently the formation of the company's new Strategic Advisory Council chaired by Joe Dignan, an internationally recognized Smart Cities evangelist. “We are honored to announce the formation of the CZ Strategic Advisory Council,” commented Cityzenith CEO Michael Jansen, “and welcome our new members from around the globe who have joined us on this extraordinary mission to transform life in cities and campuses around the world.”
Based in Chicago, with offices in London and Singapore, Cityzenith's ground-breaking 5D platform technology empowers users with a simple way to make sense of the torrent of data in our cities, corporate campuses, and universities, revolutionizing the way we access, understand, and use spatial information.
“The global Smart City market has moved from slideware to implementation on the back of the IoT. Cityzenith is the lens that allows cities the ability to turn data into information giving insight resulting in impact and has created a Strategic Advisory Council of some of the foremost thinkers in this arena”, says Joe Dignan.
“The data visualization platform that Cityzenith has created is revolutionizing our ability to make faster, better, more informed decisions. With 5D technology, cities have a new power to transform”, states Sandra Baer.
The target: to take CZ to the next level
“Cityzenith has been breaking new ground, and the results are already apparent for those smart enough to utilize the company's technology. The data explosion happening inside cities tends to push key urban organizations away from common platforms and shared tools. Cityzenith's tools and solutions are so compelling that they make breakthroughs possible”, comments Gordon Feller.
