Today, 55% of the world’s population lives in urban areas, a proportion that is expected to increase to 68% by 2050, with most of the growth coming from Asia and Africa. North America, Latin America and Europe are already leading the world in urbanization with more than 70% of their residents living in cities. (Source: United Nations)
For these cities to handle population increases and minimize negative impact on the environment while improving the quality of life for their residents, they must adopt new smart city models. What is a smart city? TechTarget defines a smart city as “a municipality that uses information and communication technologies to increase operational efficiency, share information with the public and improve both the quality of government services and citizen welfare.”
Transformation Accelerator Powers Smart City Models
Tr3Dent provides the many entities that must collaborate to plan the smart city models of the future with the strategic planning tools and collaborative platform they need to prioritize their smart city projects, assign value to services and investments and leverage best practices and industry standards to ensure successful execution.

Members of both the public and private sector who use Transformation Accelerator for their smart city projects experience common benefits:
“WeGO seeks to improve the quality of its digital engagement with its member cities while expanding its global footprint. The Smart Cities Activator (powered by Transformation Accelerator) is a natural extension of our strategic vision for developing ‘Smart Sustainable Cities for All’ .”
The following are examples of recent Smart City projects designed and modeled with Transformation Accelerator;
Integrated and Replicable Solutions in Sustainable Cities
The goal of IRIS is to create replicable and integrated solutions urgently needed in Utrecht, The Netherlands, Nice, France and Gothenburg, Sweden to deliver energy and mobility services that are cheaper, better, accessible, reliable, and contribute to a more sustainable urban quality of life.
Success is highly dependent on seamless, real-time collaboration between the lead cities and stakeholders. By using Transformation Accelerator (the engine underneath the Smart Cities Project Activator) to collaborate, the extended IRIS ecosystem was able to manage strategic execution between many different cities.
End user problem definition and user stories were captured at an early stage which provided the team with a clear view on the issues to be addressed. Communications were improved between the many stakeholders across all participating cities and ultimately, the group agreed they were able to define business ecosystems 30-50% faster than before.
