BD Guidance and Living PlanIT Collaboration to Deliver Smart Solutions in Latin America

Technology pioneer, Living PlanIT, and Latin American market maker, BD Guidance, have announced a collaboration to develop training programs and smart city solutions across Colombia and Latin America.

Living PlanIT was formed in 2006, with the philosophy that urban environments need a software platform to support the long term viability of our societies and our planet. As human activities continue to erode the Earth’s limited natural resources, populations continue to grow, so efficiently using resources and delivering services to fulfill basic human needs is critical to maintaining the stability of societies. Over the past decade Living PlanIT has gained unique experience through participation in and leading of the development of smart city projects which resulted in the design, delivery and adoption of its PlanIT Urban Operating System™ (UOS) platform which, in combination with the products it supports, unlocks the full potential of data to make cities better, safer and more vibrant places to live.

BD Guidance was started in 2009 with a focus on bidirectional trade and global expansion of innovative technologies. The Company is a globally recognized strategic planning and execution firm with extensive distribution channels in the Americas. BD Guidance Institute has been instrumental in training tens of thousands of students and professionals in advanced technologies and business skills through its courseware and certification programs delivered by certified trainers at the Institute’s training facility locations throughout Latin America.

The collaboration between BD Guidance and Living PlanIT supports Colombia’s national goal to become a regional ICT powerhouse and high-tech skilled nation. Future projects between BD Guidance and Living PlanIT will see ICT professionals and local communities familiarized with and trained on Living PlanIT’s software platform, enabling the development and implementation of technological solutions to help enhance the efficiency of real estate and infrastructure assets while reducing operational costs and improving quality of life for citizens.

The future development of applications and adoption of the UOS are expected to produce significant social and economic benefits. BD Guidance will be providing Colombia with the opportunity to up-skill and gain exposure to the latest cutting edge technologies. The development of new applications and data services will, over time and as the ecosystem of collaborators grows, lead to new business opportunities that can address local issues and be monetized by local companies.
