Smart cities are the cities of the future. In addition to addressing emerging challenges and ensuring sustainable economic development, they use data to constantly improve and evolve. This, in turn, will help governments to observe demand patterns, response times and infrastructure requirements. We are proud to work with the Sharjah government on such smart city initiatives, which will deliver faster on people-oriented priorities, extend the lifespan of existing assets, and enable higher quality of life.
