A Smart City brings together technology, government, and society. By fusing automation and IoT with real-time analytics capabilities, city leaders increase the quality of urban services and citizen engagement, while decreasing overall costs and resource consumption.
A true smart city is comprised of an ecosystem where all participants – from the private and public sectors to NGOs to citizens – benefit and gain value from investments.
Going beyond typical coordination, true collaboration brings together all parts of this ecosystem where cities gain a wider shared awareness to give richer context around plans, locations, resources, assets, and actions to better inform operations and enable coordination.
True smart cities can achieve connectivity between systems, collaboration between teams, and greater intelligence in operations, which leads to sustainable solutions and more accountable citizen services.
