" Internet of things" (Internet of things) can be effective if data which are collected by one company, city or government institution, become available to all participants of an ecosystem. One of the brightest points of realization of this ideology are the cities in which municipalities possess various data to which business structures have an interest, and the last have the data demanded by local authorities, bodies of protection of a law and order, etc. While digital platform the cities for data exchange is started in one city of the world – Copenhagen.

that efficiency in application of technologies Internet of things can be achieved, only if to adjust a horizontal and vertical exchange of the initial or processed data between various businesses and state structures, recently tell even more often. In particular, this subject stood out through all sessions of conference Internet of things World 2017 which participants noted that the city is an ideal place for its application in practice. For example, city data on geography of movement of various categories of citizens in public transport in different intervals of time (it gives the chance to save money on advertizing due to its dot placement in certain places in due time) can be interesting to business. And the city authorities would like to obtain from mobile network operators data on places of a congestion of people on large annual actions that the next year most effectively to place an ambulance car and fire protection, and also security forces. Data exchange between firms from various sectors of economy is important also: for example, the insurance companies want to have access to sensors on cars of all producers, and to suppliers of products food the generalized data on sales volumes in each commodity category and to the most demanded trademarks are extremely valuable.

Creation digital platforms the cities became one of ideas which were developed by participants "Forsythe fleet — 2017" in Saint Petersburg.
