This page illustrates what kind of data and services are available in the SynchroniCity cities using the OASC MIMs to expose them. It contains a snapshot which was true at the time when the pilot groups were planning their pilots. You can get access to a live environment in the SynchroniCity sandbox.

Below you’ll find examples of:

  • data models,
  • data sets.

The services currently available through SynchroniCity for all are:

This simple catalogue will eventually evolve into a live marketplace for data, services, hardware and training. Actually, the SynchroniCity cities are already deploying marketplaces to allow for Ecosystem Transaction Management, with terms & conditions, service levels, licenses and optional monetisation. Stay tuned for more info.
