Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

The Future of the United States

Spurred by the presidential election in 2016 – and because this election will play a critical role in the nation’s progress over the next decade – Frost & Sullivan has undertaken a comprehensive study of the future of the United States, analyzing the many Mega Trends that will affect American citizens and business through 2025.

This webcast will provide an overview of key findings from this research and will explore some of the themes that emerged throughout our research, including:

• How expanding data frontiers will force companies to find ever-more-creative ways of keeping pace with rapidly evolving technology
• America’s “network culture” that connects communities and friends, and how virtual relationships across geographies are redefining families, friendships, and professional networks
• The reality of the new “human-centric” workplace and how it will become key to employees’ future health, wellness, and happiness
• The intersection of the collaboration and competition economies, and how companies will take advantage of more opportunities to share assets and form partnerships, while simultaneously trying to compete in a crowded field and amid rapidly evolving customer dynamics

    Jillian Walker Senior Consultant, Richard Sear, Senior Vice President & Partner Visionary Innovation Group, Frost & Sullivan
    Select cities in Latin America and North America have been at the forefront of the smart city movement. However, until relatively recently, the majority of cities in the Americas had been slower to adopt a smart city approach than their counterparts in Europe and, to some extent, Asia-Pacific. The past few years, though, have seen the smart city movement expand significantly, particularly in the United States, where mid-tier cities have become increasingly interested in smart solutions to drive new efficiencies and invigorate their local economies.
  • Smart City Advancements in Europe Recorded: Jan 22 2018 35 mins
    Jillian Walker, Senior Consultant and Iain Jawad Director, Strategic Partnerships Public Sector, Frost & Sullivan
    Cities such as Vienna, Barcelona, and Amsterdam (as well as numerous others) have embraced different approaches to the smart city concept, with some preferring a bottom-up approach and others demonstrating more top-down strategies. The European Union, as a centralized regional body, has also played an important role in maturing and advancing the smart city concept throughout the region. While beginning to evolve, the smart city movement is still in a nascent stage, and both city leaders and vendors are determining how best to approach development, adoption, and delivery of smart city services. Cities and vendors must learn from best practices being developed in other cities, while also creating tailored approaches to meet the unique needs of each city and its citizens.

India and China have both unveiled national plans to support widespread implementation of their smart city visions. While beginning to mature, the smart city movement is still in a nascent stage, and both city leaders and vendors are determining how best to approach development, adoption, and delivery of smart city services. Cities and vendors must learn from best practices being developed in other cities, while also creating tailored approaches to meet the unique needs of each city and its citizens.
  • Smart City Scorecard Identifies Top Performers Recorded: Dec 11 2017 38 mins
    Jillian Walker, Senior Consultant, Visionary Innovation Group
    3 Critical Takeaways:
    · Innovation: The Smart Cities highlighted in this webinar prioritize cultivating a spirit of innovation within their communities, businesses, and government. They do this by involving citizens, businesses, and academia in the Smart City conversation; attracting innovation centers and dedicating living labs; and supporting local startups.

    · Goals & Adjectives: For Smart Cities to progress, initiatives must align with a strategy that has a clear vision and goals. All Smart Cities have three meta-goals: maintaining citizen well-being, ensuring resource and environmental sustainability, and securing a bright economic future.

    · Learning while Striving to Lead: Many cities wait to implement an initiative after its success has been proven elsewhere. Smart Cities learn from best practices, but they also take the lead in finding novel ways to address city challenges.
