Analytics company SAS to undertake initiative to propel Indonesian capital towards Smart City status using AI and IoT.
Leading multinational analytics software company SAS Institute has established a partnership with the Jakarta City Government to boost the deployment of Digital Transformation initiatives such as the Digital Government Plan and the Flood Control System.
“Given the growing needs of citizens worldwide, digital is the way to go to develop solutions more accurately and instantly. This partnership with SAS has helped Jakarta City Government to serve its people better and further elevate the resilience of Jakarta citizens,” said Yudhistira Nugraha, Director, Jakarta Smart City, Department of Communications, Informatics and Statistics of DKI Jakarta Province.
Jakarta Digital Government Platform
In 2019, the Jakarta Smart City developed Jakarta Kini (JAKI), a one-stop digital platform and super-app for multiple government services to help address the needs of its citizens. JAKI processes and analyzes diverse data from various reliable sources to gain a better understanding of the citizen needs and the services they require in the capital city through the application of advanced analytics, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning.
SAS Institute is among the main technology providers in the implementation of the Digital Transformation Plan. With its advanced analytics solutions, SAS ensures that JAKI is a reliable platform that provides accurate real-time information and data-driven insights that help improve the lives of Jakarta citizens.
For instance, through JAKI, residents can access health services like calling an ambulance or checking out the services at various public health facilities, in just a few easy steps. It also assists the city’s COVID-19 response by helping disseminate reliable information and data, including a real-time monitoring map, a chronological map, a distribution map and a map of regional control.
In addition to healthcare, JAKI also integrates other government services such as education, health, trade, disaster and licensing services. It is equipped with mobile-based public complaint management to incorporate systemic improvements into the platform.
Since soft launching in September 2019, JAKI has been used by 2,766,805 users from a total population of 11,250,000 to address their needs across different sectors, such as health, education, social and economic needs, among others.
Knowledge management for flood control system
SAS Institute is also fortifying its partnership with Jakarta City Government by assisting with the city’s Flood Control System. By leveraging SAS Analytics for IoT, the JAKI platform predicts and monitors at-risk areas in real time to reduce potential damage or harm, and increase public awareness of disaster situations.
With these predictive capabilities and analysis, Jakarta City Government can mark when to activate water pumps, which will help accelerate disaster responses and improve preparedness for flood emergencies.
The system utilizes SAS Analytics for IoT alongside sensors and weather data that assess real time situations of stream levels and predict where and when flooding may occur.
By using AI and Machine Learning, the SAS solution quickly and accurately gathers and acts upon large sets of data in real time, thus leading to an accelerated time or speed to execute the critical actions that reduce or eliminate damage to life, property and businesses in the city.
By using the SAS solution, the city has reduced data gathering time from an hour to just five minutes.
In addition to quick and accurate data analysis, Jakarta’s Flood Control System also delivers real-time decision-making, data management, analytical data management and asset management.
“The Jakarta Provincial Government partners with various parties, like private organizations, state-owned enterprises, and research organizations, to ensure that progress in the city heads towards the right direction. We are honored to be among the key players as the government continues to build a better city for its people,” said Febrianto Siboro, Managing Director (Indonesia), SAS Institute.
Jakarta’s Knowledge Management for Flood Control System was recognized in the IDC Smart City Asia Pacific Awards (SCAPA) 2022. It also won at the 2022 WSIS Prizes in the ICT Applications: e-Science category.
Jakarta Smart City’s initiatives in Digital Transformation and disaster management are supported by the SAS analytics platform, which standardizes data into a single data management system built into the super-app JAKI.Click below to share this article
