Cloud-based applications key to smart cities project | livemint

Cloud-based applications key to smart cities project | livemint | transportation planners | Scoop.it

A  cloud-based suite of “Smart City” applications part- funded by the central government can really help in speeding up implementation. The manifesto of the ruling party envisages the creation of 100 “smart cities”. With key urban development functions being under the mandate of the local government authorities, various municipal corporations have, on their own, initiated actions for adoption of the smart city concept. In April, one of the largest information technology companies in the world announced the selection of Surat to develop it as India’s first smart city under a private initiative launched last year. It aims to use a combination of cloud technology, mobile applications, data analytics and social networks to provide real-time data on all civic services. In Noida, on Delhi’s outskirts, a number of private developers have announced plans for future-ready smart cities as well. Other private networking and connectivity companies have spoken of being heavily engaged in smart city projects coming up in Kerala, in Greater Hyderabad and Greater Bangalore.
