Cities, Transport and Infrastructure
Value unlocked, design driven, scale achieved
With ever rising citizen expectations, shrinking budgets and the sustainability imperative, cities globally are looking to secure better futures by embracing data, digital and ecosystem collaboration. In parallel, the Smart City movement is scaling beyond pilots and into core infrastructure and IT budgets. Leading cities are adopting a citizen centered ethos, using technology as an enabler to create physical and digital services fit for the 21st century.
Public infrastructure is foundational to major urban centres and communities. Yet the delivery of those projects has barely changed in half a century, creating budget leakage and operational inefficiencies, making it difficult to meet rising citizen expectations. This is driving the pivot to digital, to better manage complex portfolios and improve asset management for both new and ageing infrastructure. With new mobility solutions and 5G on the horizon, new infrastructural futures are being reimagined.

Public service organisations share a common challenge: meeting the demands of continually evolving citizen expectations. Driven by the accelerating pace of modern life, citizens expect digital services that are user-friendly, responsive and adapt to their needs. Services have to be instantly accessible when and where citizens need them.
