Smart Cities

Cities can use data and technology to create efficiencies, improve sustainability, create economic development, and enhance quality of life factors for people living and working in them. They are best able to take advantage of new technologies such as IoT and 5G connectivity.

Our Digital Leaders community in each City are leaders from business, government, education, social care, health and the non-profit sectors. This gives them a great opportunity to help others deliver a successful city and themselves explore the opportunities for businesses and government to be at the forefront of developing innovative products and services to meet their changing city’s needs.
