With msg to the smart city: Our philosophy

The digital transformation of municipalities has been gaining attention for about a decade now.  We see ourselves as pioneers of this change and support municipal ecosystems in short- and long-term challenges - such as demographic change, climate protection or the creation of equal living conditions in urban and rural areas.  

We are convinced that the data aggregated in a municipal data space will help smart municipalities make work more efficient, drive economic developments, improve people's quality of life, or ease the burden on the climate by reducing emissions.  

Our experts advise and support municipalities in the design and implementation of all aspects of smart city development, including the municipal data platform or individual applications. To this end, we apply the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the New Leipzig Charter or relevant DIN Smart City specifications, among others. 

"When networking fields of action and data sources, the economic, ecological, social aspects and implications of development must be considered in addition to the technological aspects. If the "digital balance" is found, then one can speak of a truly "intelligent municipality". This particularly concerns the data obtained and the data sovereignty of the municipalities."
