Virtual Event: Architecting the Future of Your Smart City

Exploring the Technology, Tools, & Processes to Develop the City of the Future

Wednesday, March 17, 2021 (Start: 12.00pm ET / 9.00am PT)

Agenda Overview:

The development of the smart city is fundamentally dependent upon technology, but it is just one layer of many in building a smart city ecosystem. Each layer has a different but equally important role and no one layer is more relevant than another. 

Building the right smart city ecosystem for your needs and citizens is essential. A new generation of community, public sector, and technology leaders are partnering with solutions providers to drive the development of infrastructure at the intersection of technology, innovation, business, operations, strategy, and people. No individual, department, or organization can achieve change on this scale alone.    

Public Sector Network’s Architecting the Future of Your Smart City Virtual Event will equip attendees with the knowledge around how to think differently about the way their city works, and continually look to adapt to the changing needs of their citizens through the use of new and evolving technologies, policies, rules, and regulations; intended to develop the city of the future. 

Key Takeaways:

Understand what the smart city platform of the future looks like and learn how to build it

Discuss how to build and design your IoT network with ‘trust’ in your smart city initiatives in-mind

Address societal needs through the implementation of your smart city 

Explore which people, processes, tools and technologies are needed for your smart city
