A recent Government Technology white paper "Evolution of Smart Cities and Connected Communities", co-sponsored by United Parcel Service (UPS) and Consumer Technology Association, reported that the market value of smart city projects worldwide would jump from USD14.85B in 2015 to a predicted value of USD34.35B by 2020.
The number of Smart Cities projects would rise 38% to more than 235 initiatives in 2016 from 170 at the end of 2013. A key driver of this growth was the ongoing trend of global urbanisation.
This Smart Cities Roundtable allows the participants to discuss the critical success factors of Smart Cities projects.
