DKI Jakarta’s Department of Communications, IT and Statistics Wins IDC Smart City Asia/Pacific Awards 2022
The 8the IDC’s annual search for the region’s most outstanding smart city initiatives rewards the department’s knowledge management for the flood control system.
JAKARTA, June 9, 2022 – The Knowledge Management System for Flood Control by DKI Jakarta Indonesia’s Department of Communications, Informatics and Statistics beat out four other nominated projects in the Public Safety – Next Generation Emergency Services category of 2022 IDC Smart City Asia/Pacific Awards (SCAPA).
“Congratulations to the Department of Communications, IT and Statistics of DKI Jakarta on this well-deserved achievement. It is amazing to see the positive impact and progress made by local governments with their more mature digital capabilities. This is a great real-world use case of how emerging technologies can help address a city’s challenges and improve the quality of life for its citizens,” says Mevira Munindra, Country Manager at IDC Indonesia.
The Knowledge Management System for Flood Control is a remarkable smart city project that exists as a data-driven policy effort to detect areas potentially flooded with water. The system collects historical data and insights, as well as predictive analytics, to help improve disaster awareness, accelerate system-based responses, and real-time monitoring. It uses the artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities of IoT devices to extract and process huge amounts of data and machine learning (ML) systems to improve model accuracy. The system is also equipped with sensors and weather data to gain real-time situational awareness and predict where flooding may occur, and provide inputs that give warnings, alerts and decision recommendations.
“As nations face increasing climate risks, more efforts are needed to develop immediate technological solutions to ensure public safety. This project is a prime example where integrated technologies such as IoT, analytics data, artificial intelligence and machine learning could provide real-time situational awareness of rising river levels to predict where flooding may occur,” says Jezamin Razak, Senior Research Manager at IDC ASEAN.
Out of more than 330 smart city nominations for SCAPA 2022 received from public and private companies in Asia-Pacific, only 22 projects in 15 e-service categories were named among the best in their respective fields. Southeast Asia won 7 of 22 awards, while the East Asia region won 11 of 22 awards.
“We are pleased to witness more entrants to the awards and the introduction of a pandemic management category in which we recognize innovative technological solutions to manage the COVID-19 situation. Within ASEAN, we welcome the increasing use of automation, real-time data, data analytics and artificial intelligence by the public sector to have more efficient operations, redesign their services and create more accurate policies” , added Razak.
