HCM City – With mega cities like HCM City facing rapid urbanisation, economic constraints and sustainability issues, promoting the use of information technology and ensuring network security are key tasks, a seminar heard in HCM City yesterday.
Nguyễn Toàn Thắng, director of the city Department of Natural Resources and Environment, told the seminar: “The ability to improve city infrastructure management through IT application and network security is crucial to defining and achieving social, environmental and economic success.”
According to the department’s report on IT general architecture, “Information and data on natural resources and environment in HCM City should be easily accessible and efficiently exploited. This would be the foundation for creating a development environment serving the city’s socio-economic growth.
“The IT general architecture will meet the People’s Committee and natural resource and environment department’s strategic vision, plan and decisions and the Smart City project’s vision and goals and be in line with international trends like Big Data, IoT, Cloud.”
The information technology system to manage the natural resources and environmental database will be created based on the department’s digitised documents, and integrated with the information system for urban management comprising land, construction, master planning, environment, climate change, transport, and underground works.
The database will be linked with the geographic information system and global positioning system to ensure smooth integration, connection, sharing and online information provision, it said. -- VNS
