Smart government is much more than a buzzword. With significant growth around smart technologies in recent years, the benefits of going “smart” are abundant.

From improved health care for a better quality of life to reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, smart solutions for government are capable of creating better lives for citizens.

Technologists see “Smart” as the intersection of SMACT technologies: social, mobile, analytics, cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT is a particular driver for Smart Cities. Technologies do not make for “smart”. “Smart Government” is about:

  • Citizen-centric
  • Data-driven
  • Performance-focused
