Smart cities: A snapshot of Australia in 2017

Smart cities: A snapshot of Australia in 2017

Buzzwords like ‘digital’, ‘data’ and the ‘Internet of Things’ can dominate the conversation about smart cities. To find out what really makes a city smart, KPMG and the Public Sector Network brought together more than 440 leaders from government, universities and industry across six events around the country between 29 August and 7 September 2017.

During the Smart Cities Series 2017 we heard from city mayors and chief executive officers, entrepreneurs, planners and policy makers, academics, and corporate and community leaders as they look to:

  • form a smart city strategy
  • build a business case for funding
  • engage with their citizens and communities
  • establish strong partnerships for collaboration.

What we captured was a snapshot of a smart city movement that is focused on citizen needs and ready for change. In this report and set of videos we have shared some of the common themes and challenges, case studies and insights from a survey of participants.
