PRESS RELEASE – Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada September 22nd, 2022 – FuseForward, a Vancouver-based solutions provider, is excited to announce that it has achieved the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Smart City Competency. This designation recognizes FuseForward as an AWS Partner that helps customers and the partner community build and deploy innovative Smart City solutions.
Achieving the AWS Smart City Competency distinction in the Service: Urban Data Platforms and Insights category differentiates FuseForward as a member of the AWS Partner Network (APN) that has demonstrated technical proficiency and proven customer success supporting city governments and city developers who are witnessing an unprecedented rate of urban growth. FuseForward is equipped to handle challenges for helping customers accelerate and optimize city reforms and improve quality of life for citizens. As cities grow, they will require technology solutions that improve urban spatial planning, urban and peri-urban infrastructure, and city governance to develop spaces that have the ability to scale to meet urban growth.
With FuseForward’s prebuilt Urban Data Platform and over 25 years of experience working with cities and university campus customers, FuseForward helps undercover insights from the large volume of data being generated from enterprise systems and real-time control systems by leveraging advanced visualization technologies including digital twins and spatial modeling.
For example, FuseForward and Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson University) designed a digital twin of the Daphne Cockwell Health Sciences Complex. The digital twin serves as a 3D visual representation of structured data from the building. The data coming from the digital twin is allowing the university to stop being reactive, enabling proactive decisions through data visualizations that help predict building behavior and run the buildings more efficiently.
“FuseForward is proud to achieve the AWS Smart City Competency,” said Mark Damm, Chief Executive Officer at FuseForward. “Our team is dedicated to helping cities and campuses achieve their transformational goals by leveraging the agility, breadth of services, and pace of innovation that AWS provides.”
AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify APN members with deep industry experience and expertise.
“FuseForward’s technology and expert team have been invaluable to our efforts to prototype new data modelling approaches for IoT Smart Building applications.
As a result of FuseForward’s input, we have significantly decreased the time and effort necessary to deploy new concepts and algorithms.”
