Melbourne is Australia’s second most populous city comprising the metropolitan area that expands into the Hinterland towards the Dabdenong - approximately 30 km south-east from Melbourne's central business district. With a strong social and arts scene, which welcomes millions of visitors every year, the City of Melbourne collaborates with other city officials across the state of Victoria to ensure the safety of its citizens, interests and businesses.

Citywise™ Melbourne brought together a large mix of city officials and enterprise directors to discuss operational efficiencies and the role of sustainability, video storage and data sovereignty. During the discussion a key learning was the role that the various city councils should play in the rolling out technology to ensure greater transparency with the community and greater efficiencies through sharing of infrastructure and resources
