In the era of digital revolution, many things have changed in our society: new consumer habits, new technological, economic and social approaches, new challenges...
Indeed, technologies have turned our world upside down to the point that today it is almost unthinkable to imagine our daily life without them.
Many cinematographic works had already imagined what the city of the future would look like: flying cars, connected cameras, drones, and much more: between fiction and reality, there is now only one step!
Indeed, today's cities have evolved, becoming for the most part so-called intelligent territories or Smart Cities. This term was first mentioned in 2005 by Bill Clinton, former President of the United States, during a conversation with John Chambers, then President of Cisco.
The concept of Smart City is simply based on the use of new technologies to address the issues of cities such as safety, environmental cause or attractiveness. In this context, we talk about collecting data that will allow to analyze each situation in order to make appropriate decisions. It is possible then to better understand the functioning of urban flows, and to improve them by reducing the consumption of resources, by making the circulation of materials and people more fluid...
Driven by the growth of new technologies, the digital market has a diversified offer to such an extent that it becomes difficult to find the right solution.
How to know which solution will be suitable for the specific needs of the cities? How can they be implemented? How much will it cost and how much will it be worth? What are the conditions in terms of data privacy? Many aspects have to be considered since the installation of any infrastructure requires significant investment (of money and time).
This is why it is more than ever important to benefit from personalized support in order to choose the right solution that will allow an active analysis of flows and provide relevant information in space and time.
Offer and demand evolve with the trends of today's world, as well as the needs of cities. Today, in a context of sanitary and economic crisis, the challenges of territories are increasing.
Taking the digital path is a must for some communities, which must then quickly implement solutions to optimize their resources and reduce the costs associated with their consumption by adopting more sustainable operating practices. The optimization of the city's flows (linked to transportation, or the circulation of information...) will also facilitate the activities.
