Technology is an incredible tool that can exponentially transform the output and effectiveness of a city.
Cities are too often late in their adoption of crucial technology that would allow them to stay competitive and protect the welfare of their citizens.
As your next Mayor of London, I promise to make this great city Digital First with the following plans:
Digitisation is the wave of the future, and the sooner we embrace this concept, the faster we will be able to evolve and compete as a world-class city once again.
While the world has gone digital, much of our crucial local government communications and processes have not. The Metropolitan Police still fill out “paperwork.” Our SMEs communicate with councils through antiquated systems that deliver poor and untimely results. And our education system has not embraced the incredible opportunities available via digital and virtual learning.
I am committed to digitising and streamlining communications across all aspects of local government in order to eliminate inefficiencies, speed up results, and unlock massive amounts of value that will boost our economy. Only by embracing digital can we promise to build the infrastructure of tomorrow.
