There are innumerable factors in play when it comes to Smart Cities such as finding the investors, affordable and skilled labour force, experts in various fields, and specialists of various technologies. But one factor that something can be done about and has a huge bearing on the success of a smart city is its IT infrastructure. The IT infrastructure can be the difference between the success and failure of a Smart City.

Information in itself is of no value unless it is properly organised so that it can be used to draw benefit from. Smart Cities need to be equipped with advanced Information Analytics technology to leverage data for providing better service to its citizens and making life better.

This can only be achieved with the help of advanced technology. The collection of solid waste through sensor fitted waste containers, enabling their organised sorting and disposal, and facilitating recycling is far more efficient with Smart technologies.

Automating operations in financial management system will reduce human error, save time, save stationery resources, and reduce labour. Improved accuracy and faster operations will result in greater efficiency. Smart and advanced technologies such as powerful big data & analytics enable improved decision making and forecasting resulting in better financial performance.

Governing a city includes managing the documentation of relating to not only the operations of the city but also of all of its citizens. This comprises of a wide range of innumerable things such as legal documentation, educational records, marital records, driving licenses, trading licenses, real estate licenses, and city services documentation. All of this amounts to an enormous volume of paperwork and records to manage and leverage productively. With latest technology, not only can human error be reduced while saving tremendous time, but it can also save valuable and expensive space used in the storage of files and paperwork.
