Diputación de Cáceres y Badajoz visitan el centro de FIWARE Space

El pasado martes 09/11/2021, representantes de las Diputaciones de Cáceres y Badajoz tuvieron la oportunidad de acercarse hasta el centro FIWARE Space para mostrar de primera mano a la delegación cacereña el trabajo de digitalización que se está llevando a cabo en la provincia.

 

No resulta para nada sorprendente que las Diputaciones de Cáceres y Badajoz se encuentren a menudo con retos similares, y busquen soluciones de la misma índole para esos retos. Al fin y al cabo, se trata de administraciones con unas competencias, territorio y demografías muy parecidas. Es por tanto natural que ambas entidades hayan adoptado estrategias equivalentes de cara a la digitalización de sus respectivas provincias, apostando por plataformas de datos centralizadas, incentivos al ecosistema de innovación local y el énfasis en la mejora de los servicios públicos para los pequeños municipios.

Así, al igual que Diputación de Badajoz opera desde 2018 su proyecto de digitalización Badajoz es Más, caracterizado por una plataforma provincial de datos, una oficina técnica al servicio de los municipios y un centro especializado de innovación y dinamización, la Diputación de Cáceres trabaja ahora para implementar una estrategia similar, fomentando la integración de sistemas digitales en la región con el objetivo de establecer un verdadero Territorio Smart.

Es en este marco de colaboración entre provincias en el que se realizó la jornada, representantes de ambas administraciones visitaron el centro FIWARE Space donde pudieron familiarizarse con la labor de difusión y dinamización que se hace desde el mismo, además de conocer las herramientas de visualización y análisis de datos de que disponen aquellas entidades que ya trabajan a través de la Plataforma Provincial de Gestión Inteligente de Servicios Públicos de la Diputación de Badajoz.

A la visita acudieron Santos Jorna Escobero, Diputado Delegado del Área de Innovación y Provincia Digital de la Diputación de Cáceres, y Agustín Aretio Gómez, Jefe del citado Área, acompañados por parte del equipo de la diputación cacereña; por su parte, la Diputación de Badajoz estuvo representada por Manuel José González Andrade, Diputado Delegado del Área de Transformación Digital y Turismo y Jaime Gragera Rodríguez, Director de ese mismo Área. También acompañaron en la visita el equipo de Telefónica encabezado por Guillermo Santamaría Galdón, Director de Telefónica en Extremadura.

Este primer contacto será, sin lugar a duda, solo el primero de los pasos de una colaboración constante entre ambas administraciones en cuanto a material de transformación digital, innovación y digitalización del territorio se refiere, y solo queda agradecer la visita a los asistentes y esperar a ver los avances que se lleven a cabo, que serán sin duda apasionantes.

This center is part of a global project called “Badajoz Es Más“, which aims to develop municipalities with a better quality of life through sustainable development. The objective is clear: to turn the province of Badajoz into an Intelligent Territory or a “Smart Province”. In order to achieve this goal, it is a must to involve the local companies, the public administration and the citizens.

FIWARE Space coordinates the activity related to the knowledge, use and possibilities offered by the Provincial Platform for Smart Management of Public Services, which allows the integration of information from different smart services in one place, to facilitate the analysis and management of services that are the responsibility of the Provincial Council of Badajoz. This platform uses the latest technologies promoted by the European Commission about how to integrate near real-time data and how to manage context information.
