We haven’t started our smart journey yet, so how we can increase our chances of being successful?

The concept of the Smart City has been discussed for more than a decade now, and both the promises and expectations have been high. Around the world thousands of cities – and their residents – have been transforming the way that they work, with varying degrees of success. But what makes some cities successful and other cities not? Which services deliver real value to people, and which ones are technical ego-projects? We have learned a lot, and the technical landscape has changed – what was new then is now mature. In its new series of Smart City webinars, Huawei experts, along with clients and partners, will share their insights, experiences, and sometimes just their opinions on how we can continue to move forward in creating cities the serve the needs of everyone.

How can we align existing services to make them more effective and more efficient? Session 5 explores this question.
