For years, the term ‘smart’ has been used in all areas of political and industrial discourse more as a statement of intent than a reality, but cities are gradually changing, from cities that are merely connected into cities that are genuinely smart, with Ineco playing an important role in this development.
Ineco participated in Habitat III, the largest global event dedicated to urban development, which took place in Quito from 17–20 October. The company gave presentations on its experience in transport planning, sustainable mobility and services to the city. It was the third global conference –the first was held in 1976– which this time focused on the challenges faced by an increasingly urban planet threatened by climate change.
Big Data is one of the trendy concepts in the current business landscape. It is no longer a promise, but has now become a reality both technologically and economically. We only have to observe the evolution of the global rise in the generation of information –where 90% of the existing digital information has been created over the last five years– in order to understand this reality.
