Smart technologies are rapidly becoming pervasive, seamlessly impacting all aspects of our lives by changing the way we connect or interface with individuals and even infrastructure. With the rapid rate of urbanization and depleting resources, it is essential to rethink our city planning strategy to see how we can best optimize the capabilities of hard physical framework. Smart technologies available today offer a viable solution to the optimization problem by making the infrastructure data-driven. Smart infrastructures are therefore intelligent systems which are pro-active in terms of usage, interaction and efficiency powered by data. Connectivity and convergence has helped solution providers innovate and produce intelligent transport systems, smart grids, smart waste management, and smart water grids/solutions among others using sensors and big data. Market participants are currently strategizing to execute next generation services given the possibility of much faster technologies through 5G and other communication services. Governments world over are envisioning multimodal transport models, renewable energy integration, and sustainable water strategies with this new viable option.

Niche players have launched urban operating systems for such technology and data-driven infrastructure. The possibility of integrating internet of things infrastructure systems will be the way forward.

Join Frost & Sullivan as we take a look at examples of such smart infrastructure and operating systems making cities increasingly connected, efficient and user-centric.

Reasons to Attend:

  • To learn about the mammoth $83 trillion revenue split on Global Infrastructure
  • To witness how current infrastructure fares in comparison to next generation smart infrastructural systems
  • To learn how big data analytics is making in-roads in the infrastructure space
  • To discover what kind of financial flexibility opportunities Smart infrastructure provides
  • To realize the impact of mega trends on the future of infrastructure
  • To decipher the role of citizens in the smart infrastructural ecosystem change
  • To learn about the transformational shifts in regulatory approach
  • To investigate stakeholder activities in the Future Infrastructural ecosystem

Analyst Quote

"Collaboration is the key. To develop a smart infrastructural ecosystem, it is not enough that the individual systems deployed are intelligent. It is equally important that they all communicate with each other in a seamless manner," noted Senior Research Analyst, Robin Varghese. "This would require the ecosystem players to cooperate and pull their resources to develop an ecosystem where the infrastructural systems communicate with each other. This sharing of data sets or use cases across platforms will further help draw meaningful insights which could be the base for higher intelligence and efficiency in future infrastructure."
