The keyword in smart territories is “transformation”: from data to knowledge

For data to be converted into knowledge, it must be acquired from all communication channels and then processed with systems and applications capable of generating and analysing information interpreted against the cultural, social and business backdrops.

Almaviva Group invests in technologies, research, innovation, platforms, skills and strategic partnerships to make this information ever more concrete and usable, and contextualised and valued in relation to the perception and needs of the user, customer, communities and market.

Smart territories use this new knowledge to improve their decision-making with regard to safety, energy consumption, waste treatment, mobility, healthcare, education and much more.

Tools to interpret complexity

IoT, Cloud Computing, Big Data e Advanced Analytics, Mobile & Wearable Device Technology, Cyber Security, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Computing, Augmented & Virtual Reality, Smart Sensor. Today’s world is increasingly complex.

Almaviva solutions provide local public administrations with tools to help them interpret it. Because innovation goes beyond mere technological progress. This is clear to anyone, like Almaviva, engaged in providing services that tangibly improve the lives of citizens.

Direct benefits, tangible advantages

Numerous projects have been initiated within the context of Batches 3 and 4 by the country’s leading local administration bodies to simplify the provision of services to citizens and businesses.

A few examples? The immediate issue of certificates with SPID authentication: users can connect to the Municipality's website to obtain the required certificate in digital format within a minute. With the same rapidity it is possible to pay online school fees, nursery school fees, utility bills, rental instalments, etc.

One important municipality has created a database of its trees, to know their position, characteristics and state of health; another municipality is creating an online public works system so that citizens can know and monitor the progress of each active construction site. Moreover, every day portals and apps with information and cultural indications aimed at tourists and residents are put online. The same occurs for IoT sensor systems to monitor traffic, parking lots and the weather-environmental conditions. And so forth.

Containment of public expenditure, creation of the Digital Agenda. With the System of Public Connectivity

Offering increasingly innovative services, with the right emphasis on containing costs. This is the crucial goal facing the local public administration, which is called upon to tackle stringent demands – from containing public expenditure to developing the Digital Agenda.

Almaviva, as the leader of the temporary association of companies which also includes Almawave, Indra and Pwc, SPC Cloud Batches 3 and 4 (dedicated, respectively, to data interoperability services and cooperation, and the creation of portals and online services for public administration bodies), plays a crucial role in promoting the new strategic model of the public administration with regard to simplification and inclusion, as set forth by AgID and Consip, in line with the Europe 2020 Strategy.

The procedure entails the filling in of a form and the definition of a Requirements Plan to be sent to the temporary association of companies, highlighting the requirements of the administration body. The Plan can be drawn up with the aid and consultancy of experts provided by the temporary association of companies. Within 45 days from the submittal of the Plan, the administration body will receive a technical-economic proposal ready to be enacted as early as the next day.

Within a few weeks, therefore, it is possible to attain results offering immediate and substantial advantages: containing expenditure, improving the quality standards, reducing the time-to-market, eliminating administrative costs associated with the tender.

Lastly, another aspect not to be overlooked involves the Operational Programmes funded by the European Union, which the administration bodies can use to develop digitalisation projects and adhere to the framework agreement.
