Singapore: Dassault Systèmes and the District Government of Padang Pariaman signed today a memorandum of understanding, utilising the 3DEXPERIENCE platform for future development of the “Padang Pariaman Smart City Implementation Project”, at the World Cities Summit 2018.
The partnership leverages Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCity solutions to support the digital transformation of the District Government’s various portfolios for document and project management within local government agencies.
Padang Pariaman, Indonesia, is home to seventeen districts in West Sumatra. In recent years, it has successfully modernised its agricultural system, producing superior agricultural commodities while supporting the growth of urban centres.
The leaders of Padang Pariaman are now looking to establish the regency as a smart city, sustainable and livable with balanced rural-urban development. The partnership will bring to the regency Dassault Systèmes’ technological expertise and experience that have proven crucial in smart city projects in cities like Singapore or Rennes, France.
“We are seeing increasing internet and smartphone penetration in the population due to urbanisation in our regency and it is vital for us to drive IoT technology adoption at the public policy level to connect with our people and understand their needs,” said Mr. Drs. H. Ali Mukhni, Regent of Padang Pariaman.
“Smart city management is about understanding the local character of the city in relation to its environment and being able to customise the technology for these unique requirements. The collaborative aspect of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform makes it the perfect fit,” continued Masaki Sox Konno, Managing Director, Asia Pacific South, Dassault Systèmes.
