Data & Smart Cities

Cities seek to leverage new Open Data and ICT-based solutions to improve the efficiency and quality of public service delivery, stimulate sustainable economic development, and achieve a greater quality of life for citizens. Bax & Company helps cities bring together technology (e.g. sensors), tools (e.g. data), and processes (e.g. market engagement) to develop and execute cross-sector Smart City strategies.

We help cities use data and technologies to address daily challenges in a way that is needed – driven, open, scalable and financially sustainable

What do we do?

We help cities improve public services through stakeholder engagement, engage the private sector to stimulate the city’s economy and innovation capacity, mobilise resources to enable cities to achieve their goals and develop and execute ambitious Smart City strategies.
