Presidential endorsement of Smart Cities creates compelling vision

President Cyril Ramaphosa, in his State of the Nation address, said, “I dream of a South Africa where the first entirely new city built in the democratic era rises, with skyscrapers, schools, universities, hospitals and factories”. This is an exciting vision and one that Schneider Electric South Africa shares. Taru Madangombe, VP of power systems in Southern Africa for Schneider Electric: “We are aware that smart, connected devices are being deployed in cities and industries globally to gather data and glean contextual insights used to achieve higher levels of efficiency and productivity. In alignment with 4IR, in which the Internet of Things (IoT) is reshaping societies, Schneider Electric has formed a strategy in a bid to refuel growth, boost organisational efficiency and better leverage opportunities in the Middle East and African regions.” The company’s IoT-enabled, plug-and-play, open, interoperable architecture and platform, called EcoStruxure, provides services required to help businesses and cities plan ahead and improve the way they are managed. It delivers innovation from connected products to edge control, and apps, analytics and services, on six domains of expertise – Power, IT, Building, Machine, Plant and Grid.
