Top 20 Smart City Solution Companies - 2016

The concept of smart cities will redefine how we live in the cities of the future. It is estimated that by 2050, around 70 percent of the population across the globe is going to live in urban areas. Designing and implementing smart cities will be important to tackle the economic, environmental, financial and technical constraints that will accompany this growing population in urban environments.

 Today's smart city solutions—built and implemented by IT solutions providers—are enhancing the entire concept at a micro level. However, it has to be done in a bigger and broader scale to facilitate smart cities with smart infrastructure. IoT and cloud will be key enablers in this. These solutions will help tackle multiple challenges, such as reducing air, water and noise pollution, energy conservation, operational savings, public safety, appropriate resource management, improved health and enhanced security. The rapid growth of technology will make the dream of fully integrated smart cities real in the near future.
