Ipswich City, one of Australia’s fastest growing regions has selected Accenture to progress their Smart City Transformation Strategy and Implementation Plan. This initiative will develop and deliver an innovative blueprint to optimize city operations, enhance community engagement, cultivate digital technology capabilities and lead economic innovation.

Accenture said that as part of the engagement, it will focus on identifying and developing future strategic direction to maintain and improve priorities for a safe, connected, productive and liveable city for Ipswich. 

This announcement follows the launch of the Ipswich city council's community digital innovation hub last month, Fire Station 101 – which enables Ipswich to harness digital technology to improve engagement between businesses, citizens and city leaders, manage their assets more effectively and create innovative public services.

Councillor Paul Pisasale, Mayor of Ipswich
We really believe that digital cities are better enabled by digital governments who are not afraid to adopt a more human-centred approach in order to better serve their citizens.

Catherine Garner, Accenture’s Health & Public Service Lead for Australia and New Zealand
Rather than proposing a product driven, technology-centric solution, we have embedded our consulting and strategic approach around the vision and needs of the Ipswich community. Innovation is at the heart of a strong economy.
