Many governments are turning to “hyper-convergence” systems, which rely on a single vendor for all IT solutions, verses using separate and multiple vendors for software and hardware.
Hardware suppliers need to be aware of the changing demands of their government clients. They need to know when city officials are opening up the discussion about which new hardware to use and which companies they should work with.
The promising solutions connected cities offer are only possible if cities commit to advancing the hardware they run off of. With 24 percent of local legislative technology budgets going towards hardware, governments need to be transparent during the decision-making process.
