Smart cities have become one of the biggest priorities for countries worldwide in terms of prioritizing local geographical safety, public city operations, and maximizing economic growth.
A smart city is defined as a specific regional area that utilizes digital technology and information and communication technology to collect real historical data so that valuable insights can be drawn to solve city issues.
The local city government then further utilizes this real-time data to improve daily city operations. In order to do that it needs to make informed decisions and develop holistic and comprehensive solutions to city problems and concerns.
The smart city IT market is projected to reach an annual value of $34 billion. Efficient and systematic smart city management can make keeping up with smart city trends and achieving future global digitalization objectives an achievable reality.
