Smart City Innovation

With cities home to over 50% of the global population, reacting to citizen challenges is simply not enough. Municipalities must stay ahead of the game, connecting with citizens and innovating to continue meeting their evolving needs.

Key Challenges

Facing an increasing demand for citizen engagement and involvement

Keeping pace with the digital and innovative evolution of society

Reducing costs and optimizing municipality processes and services

Upholding transparency and accountability to concerned citizenry 

What The Experts Say...

"The desire for digital communication channels and transparency in city services is strong. A large number of citizens (51%) want wider access to digital platforms to enable them to communicate with government."

"The way forward today is a community-driven, bottom-up approach where citizens are an integral part of designing and developing smart cities. Citizen engagement is critical."

"To create interactive smart city services, cities need to be closer to the citizen demands and sentiments. Therefore, city governments need to establish a more customer-oriented mentality."

"City planners and policymakers must keep the big picture in mind when promoting smart cities, emphasizing well-implemented infrastructure and citizen needs."

Leveraging the Wisdom of Crowds to Digitally Transform your City

In this era of unprecedented urban growth, citizen interconnectivity, and climate change, smart city innovation is set to play a progressively central role in both public and private spheres. Municipalities will increasingly need to harness the power of big data, IoT, and alternative energy sources to address civic challenges and exploit new opportunities. By using crowdsourcing tools, governments and businesses alike can glean insights for crafting smart city innovation initiatives that will improve the quality of life for citizens. Everything from waste management, to transportation, to security and healthcare stand to benefit extensively from the power of crowdsourcing – making it an indispensable practice for smart cities around the world.
