As the leader in intelligent living solutions and digital banking solutions, IISI and its 2 projects of the MOTC Public Transport Data eXchange (PTX) in the smart transport category and the Taipei City Open Government Data X Public Collaboration led by the Taipei City Government Department of Information Technology (DOIT) in the smart government category were rewarded for their respective achievements.
CEO Fan Chang-Kang of IISI expressed his happiness that the MOTC and Taipei City Government DOIT projects, both of which prioritized public welfare, were able to win the prestigious Smart City Creative Application Award, from a total of 67 entries, and was proud that IISI played a role in these achievements. The PTX platform of the MOTC allowed effective integration of real-time data from various public transportation services distributed amongst various agencies, greatly acceleration the provision of integrated data from different transport carriers. The Taipei City Open Government Data X Public Collaboration project of the Taipei City Government DOIT made use of cloud technology to compile and provide 18 categories of Open Government Data to facilitate value-added applications by NGOs and for public use. These 2 projects were rewarded as they both sought innovation and were initiated by the respective government agencies for promoting Open Data principles. IISI, which had the necessary technical capacities and industrial knowledge, allowed the concepts to come into fruition and generate positive results that were much desired. Since its establishment, IISI has always supported the spirit of professionalism, trust, and innovation, helping clients attain their goals while creating added value.
