GLASGOW, DUNBARTONSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, January 9, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ – Telecom expert and smart city advisor Intelligences Consulting has developed a four-step data-driven decision-making framework for policymakers and local government leaders to deliver smart connected places.
The published data-driven decision-making framework in thought leadership item is based on recent client work and past research designed to create the foundation for smart connected places to benefit citizens and workers while encouraging investment in innovative and sustainable digital infrastructure.
Intelligens Consulting Founder and Managing Director Iqbal Singh Bedi said, âWe’re surrounded by tech hype everywhere we look, driven by industry, government policy, tech metrics and rankings. ”
He thinks the very notion of “being left behind” is enough to embarrass policymakers and local government leaders to invest in digital infrastructure and says that “it can lead to other challenges and missed opportunities.”
According to Bedi, “a purely ‘technology-driven’ approach to providing digital infrastructure may be commercially difficult to justify, may result in inefficient network investments, and may not be able to meet the needs of local authorities or citizens. and social and economic outcomes “.
Intelligens Consulting has developed a four-step decision-making framework that requires policymakers, decision-makers and digital leaders to take a thoughtful approach when developing their digital strategy.
âThe four-step decision-making framework,â according to Bedi, ârequires top-down thinking, as opposed to a bottom-up, technology-driven approach, ensuring that the results of local authorities and the needs of citizens are taken into account.
Intelligens Consulting has provided its clients with connected place strategies based on top-down results, while offering private sector-led investments in innovative and sustainable digital infrastructures, creating significant social and economic impact. Its team of experts in technology, strategy, economics, procurement and finance can also provide strategic, technical and procurement support, economic research and analysis and we can seek private donors to finance the development of the digital infrastructure.
