White Paper on the Smart City Ecosystem

The smart city will be very significant to citizens in the future. It is having an ever-greater impact on work processes and living conditions, as many areas and processes in the public sector are becoming increasingly digitalized. In the collaborative white paper "Smart City Ecosystem," UNITY, SAP, FIWARE, itelligence and NEC show how citizen-centric services are enabled on an open platform through technical access. The white paper lays the foundation for the technical implementation of an ecosystem in which the risk for the public sector is minimized, despite the transfer of design and regulatory competence to IT service providers. Order your free copy of the white paper from the FIWARE website.
