Several major metros in South Africa are investigating the potential that smart city technologies have for meeting the needs of an increasingly urbanised population. South Africa, as a continental business leader and home to the largest economy in Africa, has much in common with Africa when it comes to population age and prospects. The major differentiator for the country lies in its well-developed infrastructure and access to skills. These two factors will prove vital in enabling cities like Johannesburg to launch initiatives ahead of competitive cities elsewhere in Africa.
