Smart City

Smart City as a key to growth and attractiveness

Digital transformation is no longer confined to industrial companies or the manufacturing sector, but is also changing our cities today. Cities are becoming increasingly competitive. Positioning as a Smart City enables municipalities to stand out from the competition and ensures long-term attractiveness of a city or a region for citizens and businesses through intelligent networking. The development of a holistic Smart City strategy is thus a sensible and necessary step on the way to (intelligent) future for municipalities.

Digital transformation also creates great opportunities for local utilities. Through of Smart City projects, municipal utilities can position themselves as a central provider in the field of "digital services of general interest" and secure new business areas of a "Digital City" for their future business model.

Many municipalities and public utility companies have recognized these opportunities and invest in individual "digital" projects. Often these are separate from each other. Only rarely are these projects integrated into a higher-level strategy.
