Members Spotlight News Todd M. Hay, Regional Vice President of Pennoni delivers presentation on smart solutions

Smart technologies are playing a major role in the transformation of our infrastructure, real estate, facilities, and communication networks. In communities around the globe, information technology serves as the backbone for providing critical services to citizens and decision makers.

In today’s digital age, becoming a smart city is vital for attracting business, residents, tourists, and talent, and for ultimately fostering growth and prosperity. The path to a smart city future is often unclear to urban leaders; and many are looking for help in developing a roadmap that will drive the best results.

To provide this needed decision support, ESI Thoughtlab teamed up with a coalition of organizations (including Pennoni) with urban and technology expertise to conduct two ground-breaking research studies into the impact of smart city solutions on urban performance and how to become a hyperconnected city.
