SIX SMART CITY INDICATORS

THE NEED FOR A HOLISTIC APPROACH

A smart city is all about implementing solutions that create added value and transform into collective good. Smart solutions in this sense include technological solutions as well as no-tech solutions.

From our perspective, the success of smart cities comes down to the intelligent implementation of solutions within a holistic strategy along six main smart city indicators.

The Need for Smart Cities & Intelligent Communities

In March 2017, one of the fathers of the Internet, Vinton G. Cerf, was quoted in the German newspaper „Die Zeit“, saying that „smart cities is the next big thing“. We share his opinion. Given the current and future challenges that municipalities across the world need to address, the smart city concept will shape the future of how we live, work and interact in any given location. To be among the most attractive, prosperous and livable cities depends on the willingness of city governments to enter a continuous competition with themselves – to provide efficient and effective services and conditions for all their customers.
