INTEGRATED URBAN PLATFORM

Value Creation UCVV_Phase 2

Urban developments, greenfield and brownfield cities can capture more value.

 

By implementing a centralised management platform, cities could create more value for business, citizens and investors. But they’ll have to reinvent their management approach.

By leveraging the use of "smart" technology developers can capture new value as they will:

  • Optimise their expenditures

  • Create new revenues

Cities Can Capture More Value

Article INSEAD Knowledge

Moving from segmented city management to systemic urban management using a city platform will create value through a combination of enhanced city characteristics. These will include more efficient resource management and demand management, business intelligence, better quality of services across departments, and an increased number of city dwellers. In addition, city platforms will help to decrease energy consumption, pollution (GHG, air, noise), response time between departments, and damages in case of incident, crisis or catastrophe.

HUMAN CENTERED INNOVATION

The “Smart City” supports urban value creation through innovation

  • A Smart City uses technology to get information on its environment. To create information we need new data from new sensors (IoT): we can develop hardware innovation.
  • A Smart City uses technology to understand its environment. To analyse information we need new software, new algorithms: we can develop software innovation.
  • A Smart City uses technology to create value in its environment. To value information we create new business models: we can develop business model innovation.

But all these innovations are meaningful only if they are human centered innovations.

Urban value innovations are innovations that create value for the people and support the sustainable development of the city.

From a business perspective value innovations need to align innovation with utility (improved quality of living in sustainable cities), price (competitive market price) and cost (to produce the product or service).

Urban value innovations should promote a sustainable development in cities, where:

  • Social Innovations should support a social balance in the city.
  • Economical innovations should support an economic prosperity for the city.
  • Environmental innovations should support a healthier environment.

The Innovation Potential of Human-Centred Cities

Cities designed around the individual can support sustainable urban development and create lasting value and innovation.

Urban value innovations are innovations that create value for the people and support the sustainable development of the city. From a business perspective urban value innovations need to align innovation with utility (improved quality of living in sustainable cities), price (competitive market price) and cost (to produce the product or service). The city of tomorrow should be a “smart” and a sustainable one, where urban value innovations based on human-centered innovations will support social, economic and environmental innovations.
