The IDC report discusses how European cities and communities — particularly those with more than 500,000 residents — that want to embrace technology innovation should consider engaging with the professional services suppliers analyzed in this IDC MarketScape.
"City business and IT executives should consider that global professional services firms provide a wide range of services, but they differ in terms of type of domain expertise, type of services they offer, and appetite to engage in thought-leading innovation," said Massimiliano Claps, research director, IDC Government Insights.
The IDC MarketScape recognized TietoEVRYs “breadth of services and growing investments in advanced data management and machine learning competences.”
“Cities and health and social care communities require reliable system management and an integrated service provider that has extensive experience in the Nordic marketplace. A deep expertise in the field of social care and healthcare services is the foundation for truly transforming the citizen experience. We are proud that our solutions contributes to shaping a smarter society,” says Anders Jönebratt, Head of Health and Care, TietoEVRY.
The goals of smart cities focus on economic development, sustainability, innovation, citizen engagement, and building an ecosystem of partners to fundamentally change and improve the quality of life for residents. These goals are inextricably linked to produce systemic benefits that extend beyond financial performance to include environmental and social outcomes. Smart cities and communities are, by definition, focused on using emerging technologies, and technology innovations for societal benefits; solutions which increase the citizen’s quality of life.
“The lives of millions of people in the Nordics are impacted for the better by our collective solutions. The pace of digitalization continues to be substantial both in the Nordics and globally. We strive to be an important player in society, and this recognition validates this dedication. We create a digital advantage for millions of customers every day and our aim for our solution is to be part of shaping a smarter society by managing and sharing information. As a company, we aim to be the number one intelligent information management and digitalization platform for the public sector in the Nordics,” says Torben Kristensen, Head of Public 360°, TietoEVRY.
The smart city market has changed course over the past ten years and the Covid-19 crisis has accelerated and reshaped this journey. It has shifted from a technology centric view where investments were focused on developing proof of concepts in areas like smart lighting, intelligent traffic management, and smart waste, to outcome-focused programmes that can deliver value to citizens in critical areas, such as transport, economic development, public health, and social and citizen inclusion.
