Through an international collaboration facilitated by BLOXHUB, Smart City Insights (Denmark) and Visible City (US) are partnering to help organizations analyze, visualize and monetize client enterprise data combined with a diverse universe of public and marketplace data. Working together, Smart City Insights and Visible City cover the entire value chain of commercialization of data for public agencies and private firms alike.

Through the collaboration, Smart City Insights and Visible City look forward to expanding their engagement in complementary ways on a global scale. Particularly, the firms will focus on two opportunities to serve the rapidly growing need for data analysis, governance and monetization:

Insight and Monetization for Firms: As a catalyst, the collaboration assists firms in monetizing data they generate, including by packaging it for more completely developed resale. Together, they build value with raw data by:

  • Combining enterprise data with custom-selected external sources for new insights,
  • Guiding a monetization strategy with advice about new markets, services and products, and
  • Developing a data marketplace to handle client data internally and find new opportunities for innovation.

Smart City Projects, Strategy, and Governance: The combined insights of Smart City Insights and Visible City can support public sector agencies in using internal and external data effectively and building a larger data ecosystem. The objective is to maximize value for decision making, so that data is relevant for public agencies, private sector partners, and communities.

“Our team is thrilled to build on our alignment with Smart City Insights,” said Jon Commers, Managing Principal of Visible City. “Their global reach and deep expertise in data and smart city governance and strategy is an outstanding fit with Visible City’s high-touch, custom approach to data analytics and interpretation for clients.”

“We are excited to enter this journey with Visible City, who we have known for more than two years now,” said Peter Bjørn Larsen, Founder and Director of Smart City Insights. “We have already used Visible City’s unique data insights to present for customers around the world, and the combination of our skills and culture provide us with a strong backbone for all types of customers.”
