With the emergence of Smart Cities and enabling technologies, authorities and other stakeholders will start exploiting new solutions to connect sensors, meters, social media, government Web sites, and other services/products to improve the efficiency of daily city operations relating to governance and citizen services. As many as 100+ companies will contribute to the development of Smart Cities in India, including power solutions, realty and infrastructure, and technology companies. ICT will become core to a successful Smart City implementation. Smart Cities will open new growth opportunities for ICT providers offering cloud computing, Big Data analytics software, broadband connectivity, and application development.
This study uncovers opportunities for any company looking to understand or participate in India’s vision for Smart City implementation by 2020. In particular, the research covers the government of India’s 7 smart solutions categories: eGovernance and education solutions, waste management, water management, energy management, urban mobility, social smart infrastructure, and smart citizen.
