SAP in collaboration with African Ideas have announced the kick off the first African Urban Matter: Cities of the Future event in Cape Town, which will take place on the 14 and 15 November 2013.

According to UN-HABITAT, the population in some cities will increase by almost 85% over the next 10 years. This startling fact means that a multitude of problems are arising due to rapid urbanisation spiralling.

Local government organisations, which are already under incredible pressure are facing increasing challenges in providing basic services, let alone the requirements of the future. Re-visiting these models is also an opportunity to innovate and promote both transparency and efficiencies.

SAP designed its global Urban Matters program in response to these challenges, with the goal to improve people's lives. The program comprises a collection of SAP ICT solutions specifically aimed at helping government organisations of all sizes simply run better.

During this event, hosted in the beautiful Mother City, you can expect to be involved in thought-provoking sessions and discussions with global and local urban development experts and best-in-class cities, to find out how ICT solutions have helped them to create significantly better cities.

 For more information on the event, contact Manti Grobler at 011 319 7478 or email manti.grobler@sap.com
