A City is a System of Systems
When Systems Connect
When a City’s economic development thrives, so do its other systems.
- Integration of educational infrastructures and economic initiatives provides a single system for the skills development and training required to drive economies.
- An instrumented, interconnected and intelligent healthcare system delivers products and services that improve outcomes and lower costs.
- Smarter public safety systems are keeping our cities safe – a critical factor in their economic viability.
