Smart City

The challenge

In order to achieve the goal of a smart city, the various areas of cities and regions must be meaningfully linked with each other AND with urban society in order to achieve the greatest possible increase in effectiveness and efficiency. To achieve this, it is necessary to leverage and bundle technological potentials through digital transformation so that not only mobility, energy, health and housing, but also urban planning and administration can be rethought and lived in a new way.

Our approach

We therefore think smart city holistically: Development of target images, validation of their added value for and with future users, and implementation all while taking into account the prevailing framework conditions. In doing so, we place a special focus on the compatibility of public welfare and economic efficiency, for which we draw on our cross-sector expertise as an orchestrator between the public sector and other organisations. The guiding principle for this is a data-driven way of working, which is firmly anchored in our technology-focused DNA.

“The vision of the smart city must not remain a vision in the age of digital transformation but must be translated into reality with a focus on the users and in harmony with citizens. This does require visionary thinking, as well as technological implementation skills and knowledge of the challenges the urban society is facing.”
