Solutions for Smart Cities

Empower cities with smart services while protecting the data and privacy of residents


Improve municipal and state services

DTaaS can be utilized to improve sustainability and access to civil services, streamline tenant relations in city housing, integrate community services across public sector divisions.

Protect data of citizens

How data is collected, processed, applied, governed and protected are fundamental in smart cities. DTaaS creates solutions that power smart cities without compromising the privacy and confidence of citizens.

Gain valuable insights from data

DTaaS enables data collaboration across public and private sector organizations to allow for real-time insights into everyday actions and longer term strategic decisions.

Re-imagining a City

We can re-imagine the city as a network of data, application providers and consumers with a secure, privacy compliant digital collaboration network between them.

A Connected City is powered by applications that are utilized with consent and are connected into legacy data systems via a secure datatrust network.
