IUDX Deployment

Deployment Model

IUDX platform is a software system, which needs to be deployed and operated as part of the overall Smart City IT infrastructure. Since IUDX is a data exchange and not a data repository, it provides considerable deployment flexibility and not a rip-and-replace deployment. It is designed to add value in the existing deployments (brownfield) with no disruption to existing platforms and of course for the new deployments (greenfield) without any challenge. The IUDX components (Catalogue, Consent, Resource) along with the API adapters, will allow the existing data in their data platforms to be searched, requested, permitted and exchanged.

IUDX is targeted to be deployed in its own cloud instance, but could be deployed in a traditional on-premise model too if it is required to meet any specific requirements. The high data bandwidth video data will be hosted locally to meet latency and cost considerations. Multiple domains and cities could be connected to umbrella IUDXs to exchange data at the region, state and national level.

Deployment of IUDX is a partnership between the IUDX team, the city administration, their vendors and system integrators, and the ministry. The deployment will only succeed if all parties work together.

We have designed a carefully thought-out deployment process to help facilitate a successful deployment.

IT’s A PARTNERSHIP!

Two to three dedicated technical resources from System Integrator/Solution Vendor side who are familiar with the city infrastructure to work with IUDX team to provide technical details and facilitate deployment of IUDX.
Regular meetings and checkpoints from city management to track deployment. Estimated time for deployment is 3 -4 months.
One or two well defined use cases that can be achieved with the data being collected and can provide immediate value to the city.
Work with the industry/start-up ecosystem with innovative business models and investments to create applications using the data.
Production usage of IUDX and integration of data sharing into city operational culture.

Deployment Process

Deployment of IUDX is a partnership between the IUDX team, the city administration, their vendors and system integrators, and the ministry. The deployment will only succeed if all parties work together.

The deployment process is designed to make the IUDX implementation easier, faster and impactful and enable the industry/start-up ecosystem to solve the city’s specific challenges using data. The typical cycle is of 3-4 months covering the following key tasks.

The Deployment Plan

A typical deployment plan will look something like this. However every city is different and the IUDX team will create a custom plan for every city.

Responsibility Matrix
Responsibility is divided between the city, IUDX team and the ministry, with each partner taking the lead in certain areas and supporting other areas. A typical responsibility guide is shown below. This matrix will be tuned for each city, to make  IUDX implementation  as efficient and effective as possible for that city.
The Readiness Checklist
At the start of the engagement, each city will be requested to fill out the readiness checklist.  It will help identify the available data sets, identify important use cases, and create the overall city plan.
