The third meeting of the ITU-T Focus Group on Data Processing and Management to support IoT and Smart Cities & Communities (FG-DPM) brought together high-level ITU and non-ITU members to drive standardisation efforts in this area. Find all relevant output documents that emerged during the workshop on ITUs website.

The FG-DPM was founded out of the need that smart cities and communities (SCC) increasingly require defined and comprehensive data processing and management frameworks and guidelines which incorporate reasonable measures to achieve a layered, data-centric paradigm to support SCC.

The goal of the Focus Group is to conduct research, identify and study characteristics of effective SCC data management systems, urban data driven strategies will be enabled by data analytics incorporated into data management structure using emerging technologies to support data management and emerging trends including blockchain related to IoT.

Providing a platform

Taking into account the data interoperability, classification, format and security issues that affect various stakeholders, this Focus Group plays a role in providing a platform to share views, to develop a series of deliverables, and showcasing initiatives, projects, and standards activities linked to data processing and management and establishment of IoT ecosystem solutions for data focused cities.

The third meeting was organised back-to-back with the first ITU-T workshop on data processing and management for IoT and SCC. It was co-hosted by the European Commission and OASC.

The next meeting of the FG-DPM will take place on 1-3 May 2018 in Cairo, Egypt. More information will be available soon.
