Project Results
  • The installation of 300+ wireless parking sensors

  • Integration with LoRaWan network (NetMore)

  • Integration with 3rd party Applications for Parking management and 3rd party Mobile applications

  • Set up of Parking Cloud by Jet BI for Parking Management

  • Set up of Salesforce Service cloud for incident management process set up to monitor sensor work and organize issues troubleshooting.

  • Set up of Salesforce Field Service for planning and execution onsite work

The uniqueness of the project

The Parking Cloud solution meets the needs of both city administrations and private clients with huge parking spaces, e.g. shopping malls, stadiums, owners of corporate parking, logistics centers, universities.

All parties benefit from the Parking Cloud solution because it offers:

  • an efficient use of parking spaces for parking lot owners;
  • a reduction in the time drivers have to spend searching for a space;
  • the prompt detection of parking violations for traffic police;
  • a reduction in air pollution

Used software
  • Smart parking sensors by

  • Integration with LoRaWan network (NetMore)

  • Integration with 3rd party Applications for Parking management and 3rd party Mobile applications

  • Parking Cloud by Jet BI for Parking Management

  • Salesforce Service cloud for incident management

  • Salesforce Field Service for field work planning and execution

Difficulty of implementation
  • Distribution of parking bays all over the county Kerry and strict timeline for sensor installation required efforts on route planning and optimization. Rainy weather in Ireland also had an impact

  • Some areas have low internet coverage so it took some common work with LoRaWan network provider to ensure the sensors communication

Project Description

County Kerry, located in the southwest part of Ireland, is one of Ireland's most well-known counties, with a population of 156,458 in 2023. It is well-known for its prominent tourist sites, including the Ring of Kerry, Killarney National Park, Ross Castle, Dingle Peninsula, and many others. These sites frequently attract people from all over the world, making an equitable and effective parking management system a crucial component of making County Kerry a more attractive destination for visitors. So they started a programme to implement Smart parking solutions across the County. Phase I was to install 300+ parking sensors on the parking bays for people with special needs. Parking sensors send signals to the parking management system about parking bay occupancy. This data is also provided directly to the mobile application to help drivers find available parking spaces in real time, assisting them in finding a free spot.

Project geography

Parking sensors have been installed in 33 locations in 5 municipal districts (Killarney, Tralee, Castleisland, Kenmare, Listowel) of County Kerry Ireland.

On June 6, 2024, the professional IT community Global CIO held an annual meeting with IT leaders from Uzbekistan. The event named “CIO of Uzbekistan as part of Global IT community” took place at the International Hotel in Tashkent. The meeting was aimed to exchange best practices, experiences and get together IT leaders from Central Asia.

The Global CIO professional IT community has conducted its annual survey of IT executives and would like to thank all the community members who helped realise this work. This survey explores the key challenges that CIOs face from their companies, as well as the CIO's personal view of their areas of responsibility. The survey included 100 respondents heading IT departments in companies.

The events of the past two years have shown how important it is not only to have a long-term strategy, but also to be able to quickly 'reformat' it to new circumstances. The metaphor of the whale and the Strategy methodology were created specifically for this process.

The international IT professionals' community has announced the 'Top 100 IT Leaders' project. It is a global initiative that allows top IT managers to share their experience, expand their professional network and showcase the best digitalization practices of their companies. Here we will answer the basic questions about the project.

The editors of Global CIO discussed with Ahmet Hakan Göral, CIO at Boutique Rugs and winner of the Project of the Year 2023 contest, his current projects, the approach to digital transformation and the specifics of the role of CIO in retail.
