Last weekend I spoke to a friend in an MNC. They have lot of technologies and solutions for smart cities. Especially for waste management which is a perennial problem, at least for Bangalore.
The difficulty is progressing, is in resolving the business model. This is when I started thinking about my blog which I posted some time back. - Why India needs a CTO.
If we have CTOs for every government entity, I feel things will be dramatically different. The CTO could tie together, existing problems with technologies, solutions and business model. From there, could evolve stronger model for defining technology roadmap for the society.
Any responses? I am all ears!
