"Smart Strategies, Giving Speed to your Growth Trajectory"
A smart city is an intellectually connected city backed up with the integration of massive information on civilian and communication technologies. These technologies have been extensively adopted and implemented in recent years to improve public safety measures. These measures include approaches such as observing areas of maximum crime rates to improve emergency awareness system with the use of advanced sensors and other communication equipment. Also, to enhance time and cost efficiency, the public nowadays are rapidly adopting smart components in their everyday work to experience leisure in their spare time. Further, several funding programmes and strategies were initiated by the government to boost the development of smart cities.
For instance, in 2017, the European Union has established several funding programmes to drive the growth of smart cities in Europe. The ‘SET Plan’ and ‘7th Framework Programme’ for research have been initiated by the government to drive the growth of smart cities in the European dimension. Similarly, in Austria, the Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT), as well as the Climate and Energy Fund, are primarily investing hugely for developing and implementing smart city initiatives.

North America is expected to lead the global smart cities market in terms of revenue in the forecast period. This significant growth is due to the substantial implementation of smart cities solutions backed by increasing investment among government organizations and rising demand for connected solutions in the region. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period due to the factor such as rise in IT spending supported by government initiatives in emerging economies such as China, Singapore, India, and South Korea. For example, in September 2018, Cisco Systems signed a contract with the government of Indonesia for its global ‘Country Digital Acceleration (CDA)’ program. According to the agreement, the main focus is on digital industries, digital governments, digital state-owned enterprises, and cybersecurity and others.
