IBM has plans to integrate its various applications for cities into one offering as it attempts to tap into a growing market.

In many respects, Big Blue is following the money. IDC reckons that information technology upgrades for cities will be worth US$57 billion in 2014, up from US$34 billion in 2011.

These cities are struggling with budget and infrastructure constraints as well as an influx of residents. IBM's plan is to take its software used in various projects--Rio, Memphis and New York to name a few--and integrate them into one system dubbed the IBM Intelligent Operations Center for Smarter Cities.
