Well-maintained public infrastructure – our roads, bridges, buildings and other assets -- is the foundation of our communities. But our infrastructure is in a dismal state – the American Society of Civil Engineers recently gave it a D+ or “poor” rating.

The challenge is clear: Governments must effectively manage a diverse and growing array of assets with fewer resources.

Join us on October 11th at 11:00 AM Pacific/2:00 PM Eastern for an interactive hour-long webinar to learn how technology can revolutionize life cycle management processes for fixed assets and support the creation of intelligent, IoT-connected infrastructure. On the webinar we will also cover:

  • The drivers for modernizing infrastructure asset management
  • How the latest technology solutions help governments maximize the life cycle of their assets, including examples from cities that have implemented them
  • How infrastructure management modernization can be the gateway to smarter and more connected communities
