Moving Beyond Smart City : The Frost Vision of a Smart Society

City planners are pursuing their smart city vision and with it the promise of what a smart city will bring to city planners and residents. While the development of these plans is usually aligned with the most pressing issues that city planners are trying to solve, residents of the city are usually excluded from the equation. The focus on smart city development tends to be on technology and infrastructure, while excluding other key elements such as citizens or residents and cultural and environmental considerations. Frost and Sullivan terms this as a smart society development and believes that smart city development is just the start of a smart society.

Key Findings

Rapid urbanization and aging population within the APAC region is causing many regional city planners to embark on their smart city journey in order to manage these challenges.
- Much of the regional smart city initiatives seems to be driven by governments and is focused around efficiency and sustainability.
- Smart city discussions tend to mostly revolve around technology, platform, and connectivity, and less on other key elements such as citizens, culture, and environment or neighborhoods.
- Smart city development should be centered around the citizen and not only around the needs of city planners.
- Smart city objectives should be clearly defined and relevant key performance indicators identified to ensure that smart city plans deliver on their promises.
