What’s not to like about the thought of becoming smart. But what does “smart” mean for our cities?  Much of the talk around smart cities focuses on the technologies – connected infrastructure, mobile applications, and vast quantities of data.  Translating these new tools into more efficient and effective public policies and services is the true key to becoming a smart city.

 

In this latest webinar, Jennifer Belissent, PhD, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, and Andreas Knobloch, Alliance Manager Public Segment at Philips Lighting, discuss the true promise of smart cities and the prerequisites for getting there. As a starting point, city leaders must understanding the current state and future needs of the city, and only then can they design appropriate programs and deliver efficient and effective services. Our speakers will also address potential stumbling blocks such as the challenge of turning data in to insights and ultimately into actions. City officials must improve overall data maturity, developing capabilities and competencies, and ultimately encouraging a culture that recognizes the value of data and analytics.

 

Using examples from cities like Boston and Buenos Aires, this webinar delivers insights into how to prioritize city initiatives, highlights best practices in building systems of insights, and provides recommendations for building broader ecosystems behind the city.
