Creating smart cities: Lessons in digital transformation




Technology is improving the way cities operate and it's creating stronger civic connection with citizens. But city leaders are discovering that the road to innovation is a matter of learning while doing—and that there is a different route for each community. Around the United States, urban areas are carving their own paths through data initiatives to find better ways to run their government agencies and city services.

While smart cities and the Internet of Things offer many improvements, including a higher level of transparency, there are also complications and challenges, like privacy and security risks, to integrating tech into established processes.

These two articles from Enterprise.NXT dig into lessons and advice. The first includes insights from city leaders who are transforming their municipalities with technological integration and automation. The second includes concerns and recommendations from technology security experts.

Automated Internet of Things (IoT) applications promise to enhance urban safety by accelerating emergency response times, alerting motorists to traffic hazards, and more. Yet these innovations also create privacy and security challenges.

HPE Business Insights is merging with Enterprise.NXT, a thought leadership platform featuring cutting-edge advice from leading IT and business strategy experts, along with insightful, in-depth reporting on the latest trends in enterprise technology.
