Established in 2013 KnowNow Cities is a wholly owned subsidiary of KnowNow Information Ltd . KnowNow Cities specialises in creating useable and interactive Technology Infrastructure Blueprints and Roadmaps for smart cities.

In effect KnowNow Cities creates an  Enterprise Architecture for the Smart City.  Our goal is to design the best possible technology infrastructure for tomorrow; and deliver the most cost effective, resilient and sustainable technology infrastructure for today.

Nice Picture!

It is important that when creating architectures that they use a method that peers and wider industry can interpret.  For that reason, KnowNow Cities uses Enterprise Architecture industry standard principles (based on ToGAF).    One speciality is our ability to map the technology infrastructure to construction industry templates such as the ‘RIBA Plan of Work’.  KnowNow are members of the City Standards Institute at the Future Cities Catapult.
