Free CIPS Webcast: "Deploying Smart City Technologies"

Recording of the CIPS Ontario June 28th, 2016 Mississauga Event and Webinar:

Topic: "Deploying Smart City Technologies"

The City has established itself as a leader in the use of technology to engage citizens and deliver services through innovation and partnerships. Through the IT Master Plan process a whole new set of Inspiring Possibilities has been established forming a new and exciting vision for the future.
Presentation Description:
 The IT Master Plan has four key strategies that provide areas of focus.
  • Foster Open and Accessible Government
  • Enable Decisions through Research and Analytics
  • Create a Connected and Engaged Workplace
  • Improve Services through Innovation and Partnerships
Each has an action plan for the next three to five years with an objective to enable the transformation of the City of Mississauga into an engaged and connected City.
Technology has become essential to the delivery of City Services with the worker and the workplace being heavily influenced by mobile technology. 
IT Infrastructure has also become essential to how City services are connected and operate. Fibre optic networks, Wi-Fi and cellular networks connect these services and enable the collection of data and the ability to manage these services in real time. The connection of assets and services is known in industry as the Internet of Things and is an important opportunity for the City as it continues to develop as a Smart City leader.
