Locally built innovations

„Although on similar principles digital cities are always tailored to the needs of the given community, which means the involvement of the citizens in the infocommunications development of the cities can be crucial”, said Gábor Bódi, deputy secretary of state at the Prime Minister’s Office at the Digital City  Conference organized by T-Systems Magyarország in Egerszalók. The two-day event offered possibility for the stakeholders, including local municipality officials and city development experts to exchange thoughts about the present state and the perspectives of the digitalization of Hungarian cities.

Locally built innovationsInstead of alienating, technology offers new possibilities to increase efficiency while bearing in mind the needs of the community, in almost all walks of life.  Infocommunication helps organize the life of a city to be more comfortable, simple, efficient, economical and environment-friendly, from public services through urban transport, healthcare, education and commerce to the support of the local, self-organizing communities.  Sooner or later smart technologies will reach every city, but the degree of efficiency with which a city is able to use them will be a factor of competitiveness.

Gábor Bódi, secretary of state responsible for infocommunications coordination said: „The digital infrastructure is only the basis on which economic development will have to be built so as to create a sustainable and financeable ecosystem. Although the local municipalities make their own decision as to what development to implement, in the near future the state will support projects based on intelligent solutions with a knowledge center.”

Telekom business development official Sándor Kulcsár said in the context of Magyar Telekom’s T-City program in Szolnok: „Technology is not the goal but rather the means of raising the standard of living of the citizens in those localities which the innovation solutions reach.  Yet, the  T-City program could not have been a success if the citizens of Szolnok had not embraced it.”

Zoltán Németh, deputy CEO of T-Systems Magyarország said at the event: „To lead the way in technology is an opportunity for the company which we have to seize in order to meet the challenges of the digital industry revolution.  By now  T-Systems Magyarország has such portfolio and project experience which enable it to be an active partner of the digital efforts of the Hungarian cities.”

T-Systems Magyarország has completed projects of outstanding significance also by international standard in several cities and other localities. At the conference it presented those products and services based on which, and taking into considerations sustainability considerations too, any city can enter the path of digitalization. All this is also available on the microsite www.t-systems.hu/smartcity. The conference participants were also given an insight into the intelligent community transport solutions, energy management and video surveillance systems offered by T-Systems Magyarország, as well as the services provided by the citicard.  Local installations helped understand better the presented systems.
