Smart City applications are

best managed

in the cloud

Cloud-based solutions offer a secure, scalable, and cost-effective option when building a Smart City infrastructure.

Smart City applications such as street lighting, smart parking, and road traffic management are starting to be widely deployed around the world, bringing benefits to city operations, improving quality of life, reducing costs and energy use, and improving customer service. These services tend to be deployed as stand-alone applications, but the full benefits of a Smart City will only be realized if these applications are able to share data, enabling cross-department processes, and making city operations transparent across many groups.

In addition, many cities are growing rapidly and need to be certain that these applications can be extended and expanded as required, meaning a future-proof IT strategy is essential. And because physical location is no longer a determining factor in IT infrastructure management, cloud solutions are likely to be the logical next step.

Could civic leaders and the use of digital technologies shape the future of cities?


City stakeholders, such as citizens, businesses, and governments who use digital technologies play a much larger role than just utilizing smartphones and social media– they shape the futures of cities. The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), on behalf of Philips, is finding out how impactful these technologies are when engaging with urban environments. These components allow stakeholders to communicate with each other – resulting in an influence on how their city develops.

Smart Cities need open systems

 

Technologies and standards are evolving rapidly in the dynamic smart city environment. Cities need to stay flexible and prepare for a future based on open standards and APIs. They need an evolving solution for tomorrow that works for them today.
