CCID Consulting regards smart city as an innovative application of the new information technologies in the urban areas, with the following features:

(1) Smart city is a new exploration of new information technologies in the field of public services. The purpose of constructing smart cities is to improve the capability, universality and equality of public services. The application of new information technologies allows automation and intellectualization for information gathering, processing and supply, triggering the transformation of the public service pattern, which will greatly change the lifestyle of urban residents and improve the quality of life.

New information technologies such as cloud computing and Internet of Things can promote trans-departmental innovation and application in the fields of city management and operation, which will play key roles in improving the efficiency of city operation and promoting the bearing capability of the city.

(3) New information technologies and other elements function jointly in the smart city system. Information technologies are the core element in the construction of smart city.
