Can you build a smart city in 5 years

We live in a time of rapid change and progression, with more than half of the world’s population living in urban areas. We are faced with a multitude of challenges that will demand that we change the ways we produce and consume, the ways we administer and organize, and ultimately the way we live and interact as a species. But the imminent challenges we face are many times more locally variable than one first might presume.

Realizing what current state you are in will help you with the starting point of the transformation and with the ability to identifying the challenges that are relevant for you

“The failure to stop targeted attacks requires security organizations to rebalance investments and to adopt a continuous response culture. Security organizations must assume they are compromised, and, therefore, invest in detective capabilities that provide continuous monitoring for patterns and behaviors indicative of malicious intent. Preventive controls to “harden” endpoints are highly effective and should be revisited by security organizations; new tools are emerging to simplify this task.” Gartner

 Every city generates an amazing amount of data on a daily basis, but the majority of this data is not used by local administrations in order to deliver better services for its citizens, by getting smart we can use it, save money, become more efficient and improve the standard of life for those that rely on our services.

 Everyone accepts that the technology is there to enable cities to work smarter, but the path to smartness can be the most difficult part of that journey, it will involve close collaboration between government, partners, entrepreneurs, knowledge institutes and of course the citizens and end-users of your great cities.Join us in Stockholm, October 2015 to hear from leaders of Smart City projects, those responsible for shaping the smart city policy vision and of course the disruptive innovators whose technologies have the potential to transform your city for everyone 

of your citizens.
