The Department of Communications, Informatics and Statistics of DKI Jakarta Wins in the 2022 IDC Smart City Asia/Pacific Awards

The 8th annual IDC search for the region’s most outstanding smart city initiatives recognize the department’s Knowledge Management for Flood Control System.

JAKARTA, June 9, 2022 – The Knowledge Management for Flood Control System by the Department of Communications, Informatics and Statistics of DKI Jakarta Indonesia as bested four other projects nominated under the Public Safety – Next-Generation Emergency Services Category of the 2022 IDC Smart City Asia/Pacific Awards (SCAPA).

“Congratulations to the Department of Communications, Informatics and Statistics of DKI Jakarta on the well-deserved achievement. It is amazing to witness the positive impact and progress local governments have reached with their more mature digital capabilities. This is an excellent real-life use case of how emerging technologies can help address a city’s challenges and improve its citizens’ quality of life,” says Mevira Munindra, Country Manager at IDC Indonesia.

The Knowledge Management for Flood Control System is a remarkable smart city project that exists as a data-based policy effort to detect potentially inundated areas with water. The system collects historical data and knowledge, as well as performs predictive analysis, to help improve disaster awareness, accelerate system-based responses and real-time monitoring. It uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities of IoT devices to pull and process massive amounts of data and machine learning (ML) systems to improve model accuracy. The system is also equipped with sensors and weather data to gain real-time situational awareness and predict where flooding may occur, and providing inputs that give out warnings, alerts, and decision recommendations.

"As nations face increasing climate risks, more efforts to develop immediate technology-based solutions to ensure public safety are needed. This project is a great example where integrated technologies such as IoT, data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning could provide real-time situational awareness of the rising stream levels in order to predict where flooding may occur,” says Jezamin Razak, Senior Research Manager at IDC ASEAN.

Out of the over 330 smart city nominations for SCAPA 2022 received from public and private enterprises in Asia Pacific, only 22 projects in 15 eService categories were named as the best of the best in their respective fields. Southeast Asia secured 7 of the 22 awards, while the East Asia region bagged 11 of the 22 awards.

"We are happy to witness more participants in the awards and the introduction of a Pandemic Management category where we recognize innovative technology solutions to manage the COVID-19 situation. In ASEAN, we welcome the increasing use of automation, real-time data, data analytics and artificial intelligence by the public sector to have more efficient operations, redesign their services, and create sharper policies," added Razak.
