Smart City as a buzzword has picked up across Indian States. Still the offerings seems to be missing the substance expected!
Every organization is projecting to be moving on line of Smart City / World Concept, yet the value that should get delivered from an integrated Smart City / World concept to target customers seems to be missing. The possible reason is everyone is doing improvement in their respective field and calling it a Smart version of their product / service offering, yet the offering isn’t getting attention.
If one talks of pure-play IT applications for Smart City, the complete software stack was there, yet the integration points with city based systems for figuring out and taking pro-active measurements aren’t there.
In nutshell, Smart City seems to be budge word only.
