What is the smart city strategy

What is the Smart City Strategy?

  • Strategic Framework:

    • Aims to reposition Cape Town as a leading player in the new global knowledge economy.

  • Focus on Transformation:

    • Modus operandi of local government in relation to its service delivery

    • Entire operation of society

  • Primary intervention:

    • Based on what local government can enable and how local government can “lead by example” by changing the way that it interacts with citizens, businesses, other government departments and other stakeholders

  • It is not:

    • The “property” of the IT Directorate, but is instead something that cuts across all City departments and strategies.


Transformation strategy

Transformation Strategy

  • Encompasses SIX (6) Questions/ Areas:

What leadership is necessary to establish competitive advantage in a digital economy and society (Smart City leadership)?

What must be done to ensure that our policy and regulatory environment supports the development of a smart city?

How will information technology lay the foundation for the building of a new flexible and responsive organisation and enable the organisation to continually improve in its efficiency and effectiveness in delivering its programmes and services (administrative/e-government strategy)?

How do we use IT as an instrument to foster the economic and social development of the City (development strategy)?

How can IT be used to ensure / enhance good governance (digital democracy)?

How can we create a world class IT organisation that supports the achievement of the Smart City strategy objectives?

How to report on progress are we getting there

How to report on progress?Are we getting there?

  • Soon after Robert Maydon was appointed, the Corporate Business Plan was created for all clusters.

  • The Corporate Business Plan aimed to focus on the (few) high level corporate issues that needed to be monitored and measured.

  • In light of the Gansekraal 5 year objectives, clusters has to indicate their key corporate outputs for the next 12 months.

  • Although Council has experienced many changes since then, this is probably still the best measure of ‘intention to action’ i.e. this is what we planned to do, and this is what we have done.

A key output for the IT cluster is to minimise the number of these initiatives that it is involved in (and defer implementation as part of ERP) and to aim to collapse multiple initiatives into one.

Additional feedback

Additional Feedback

  • Microsoft Digital Villages

  • Desktop standardisation project

  • IT skills development and e-learning project

  • Digital divide study

  • Health (clinics connectivity) and CPM initiative at Police

  • Funding – so far have relied on integrating smart city initiative with IT operational work. That does dictate a slower pace. Much lower funding compare with other cities, private sector and similar initiatives in SA.

  • Micro design – small unit focusing on Smart City initiatives (Again funding is an issue. Also necessary due to operational needs of IT).
