Smart City – Making the Most of Your Investments

Jan Alexa
Senior Research Analyst, Insights and Vertical Markets, IDC CEMA

What makes Smart City initiatives sucessful? What risks do they present?

The concept of Smart Cities frames local government transformation driven by sustainable development, improving services delivery in transportation and public safety; fostering innovation, attracting investment, new businesses, and talent; meeting citizens' rising expectations; and building successful business cases and models.
While national governments keep Smart Cities high on their priority lists, supported with considerable resources, local governments are faced with challenges such as keeping a healthy balance between infrastructure investments, civic engagement, and tangible outcomes for citizens and their quality of life.
This presentation will take a close look at being "smart" in this context through the prism of IDC’s Smart City MaturityScape.

Electric and Intelligent Mobility: A Roadmap to Smart Environment

Zoltán Vígh
Public Affairs Executive, Jedlik Ányos Klaszter

Disruptive trends, like electric and intelligent mobility are about to change our perceptions about a vast range of things. But how can we ensure that these changes should really produce the best solutions? The experience what we at the Hungarian E-Mobility Cluster gained so far is that stakeholders must more and more closely cooperate in very complex matters, like regulation, policymaking, city planning or social networking. We should not forget that the main reason and the main goal of these changes is sustainability - in an ever smarter environment. Thus it is worth examining how the new mobility trends can meet the expectations of the relevant stakeholders.
