Edzard Overbeek, CEO of Here
Global location technology company, Here, will be asking delegates to the ITS World Congress Melbourne to imagine a world where everything has an IP address and a location; where every piece of data is understood in a geospatial context. The company will be showcasing a new generation of mobility, transportation and infrastructure services born out of this very vision – the Here Open Location Platform.
Today, many of Here’s partners look to the company not only as a map data and location service provider, but as a platform that can play the role of ‘orchestrator’: building connections between the different elements of what we know remains a fragmented mobility and smart city ecosystem today.
“The platform pulls together diverse streams of data such as map, transit and vehicle sensor data for analysis, before redistributing enriched, targeted and actionable content back out to organisations, users and developers,” says Edzard Overbeek, CEO of Here. “For ITS players, the possibilities are endless – from delivering a driver to his destination safely, helping a city to manage its infrastructure more smartly, or enabling a business to optimise the utility of its assets. “
