On-line Presentation


This Insights Presentation provides an Asia/Pacific-level overview of public safety in terms of the current situation in Asia/Pacific countries, key market drivers for public safety projects, and major Smart City solutions related to public safety that are expected to redefine the overall Smart City ecosystem in the region. It also analyzes the significant impact of digital technologies and 3rd Platform technologies on the technology landscape in the national security and public safety spaces, driving innovation, growth, and changes in business models.

There are several technology vendors that are investing in smart public safety solutions such as IBM, NEC Corporation, Cisco, Alcatel-Lucent, and so forth. They are collaborating with various government bodies to create well-designed, productive, smart, and safe cities, which will enable vibrancy among engaging communities in which people will live in a secure environment.

From a technology perspective, government opportunities are emerging across the entire technology stack, with the current opportunities predominately in the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud, Big Data and analytics, mobile apps, ecommerce, and digitization. By 2020, more than half of all IT spending growth will be from 3rd Platform technologies. Particularly in Asia, with a strong mobile population, securing and managing mobile access and assets will become more important. As part of IDC's efforts to showcase best practices, we have put forth Project Noah, which is a winner of IDC Smart City Asia/Pacific Awards 2016.

IDC advises public safety organizations to choose the right technology solution provider to leverage the right potential needed for a specific public safety solution. Public safety organizations must create a security-focused culture wherein it has to train and educate people to consistently act with a security mindset and develop a more security-focused culture. In addition to this, IDC recommends security solution providers to use a rapid application development approach in regard to security software development and provide an agile project delivery framework to keep the customer actively involved during the entire process and thus can make decisions on creating innovative software solutions to avoid discrepancies in the near future.
