In today’s world, digital transformation is not solely exclusive to the private sector. It is just as well key in transforming governments and public sector institutions.
In line with the global shift towards digitalisation, an increasing number of industries are opting for hybrid work arrangements for the first time, with digital transformation becoming a core focus for many sectors. The need to rapidly digitise operations has, in several ways, accelerated the move toward smart cities; i.e. areas where traditional networks and services are made more efficient with the use of digital and telecommunications in order to improve citizen quality of life.
The world is facing unprecedented challenges caused by our current approach to consumption and production. In 2019 alone, 92 billion tonnes of materials were extracted and processed, contributing to almost half of the global CO2 emissions. As such, there is mounting pressure to shift toward a circular economy, whereby elimination of waste and safe use of natural resources are promoted.
Public-private partnership (PPP), which establishes cooperation and collaboration between public bodies and private organizations, is gaining traction worldwide. By bringing together private expertise with public resources, this arrangement provides efficient, high-quality services and infrastructure at a better value for money.
Cities everywhere are opting to incorporate smart technologies to solve some of their most pressing issues, from transportation to healthcare. Similarly, agriculture has emerged as another component that can be significantly enhanced through the utilisation of “smart systems” and then successfully integrated within the wider picture of smart cities.
Over the past century, the expansion of global economies has posed environmental challenges that demand a radical rethink in our priorities, habits, and systems.
With the recent rollout of COVID-19 vaccines, the light at the end of the tunnel is starting to shine for the tourism industry. However, the process of approval, production, and distribution will still take plenty of time – possibly till the end of 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the ways in which medical services can be provided in an unprecedented manner. On short notice, hospitals had to endure unusual strain on their services; which ultimately led to supply shortages and a great reduction in the number of patients who could be admitted to their facilities.
Once dubbed as “the technology that can end traffic jams”, it is no secret that the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to promote efficient transportation has been heavily praised in recent years;
