Smart Solutions for the Smart Nation: Call for Cool ISVs & Startup

Three companies have stepped forward to help SiTF members create smart nation solutions.

Iconz-Webvisions, Microsoft and rhipe Singapore with expertise in cloud computing have reached out to SiTF members to co-develop  solutions for Singapore’s smart nation programme (SNP).

This is part of SiTF industry effort to match and introduce SiTF members to larger companies with expertise to work on SNP projects.

Representatives of the three companies shared their expertise and their outlook of the Singapore’s smart nation programme at the SiTF’s Cloud Computing Chapter event held on Feb 12.

The event also updated members on the SNP and as well as outlined ways to help ISVs and start-up members build partnerships to seize SNP business opportunities.

Going forward, the chapter will be holding other similar match-and-introduce events.

The SiTF would like to thank Iconz-Webvisions, Microsoft and rhipe Singapore for their contributions and support for the event.

The SiTF also thanked the event’s committee members, namely Smita Roy, country manager, rhipe Singapore and  Kuah Sok Khim, group marketing manager, Iconz-Webvisions,  for volunteering their time and effort to organise this event.
