Caribbean TECH TrendZ Ltd Participates in CityNext
Caribbean TECH TrendZ Ltd is committed to engaging government, businesses and citizens to
shape the next generation of cities.
Trinidad, West Indies—October 17, 2014–Caribbean TECH TrendZ Ltd today announced it is working with Microsoft on Microsoft CityNext, an initiative designed to help governments, businesses and citizens reimagine what is next for their cities. For the first time in history, more than 50 percent of the world’s population lives in urban areas and nearly 70 percent of people will live in cities by 2050. This ongoing migration creates unprecedented opportunities, but also intensifies problems such as aging infrastructure, hazards to public health and safety, pollution, crime and traffic. Through the Microsoft CityNext initiative, Microsoft and Caribbean TECH TrendZ Ltd will help leaders to do “new with less,” by combining the power of technology with innovative ideas to connect governments, businesses and citizens with city services that increase efficiencies, reduce costs, foster a more sustainable environment and cultivate communities where people thrive.
Caribbean TECH TrendZ Ltd (CTTL), a Microsoft Gold Partner, multiple Microsoft Silver Partner and a Certified Partner for Learning Solutions (CPLS), is a leading technology solutions company, specializing in IT training and enterprise consulting services. Caribbean TECH TrendZ Ltd offers specific city solutions in the government administration space.
“Our participation in Microsoft CityNext continues our long-standing dedication to helping innovate and modernize our cities to prepare for the future and the next generation,” said D.M. Ramdathsingh Msc PgD, Strategic Business and Information Technology, CEO Caribbean TECH TrendZ Ltd (CTTL). “Microsoft solutions help customers transform their operations through innovative yet familiar and secure platforms to engage citizens and business through an evolving social fabric and the development of our workforce through knowledge competencies.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with Caribbean TECH TrendZ Ltd on Microsoft CityNext,” said Rob Bernard, Microsoft Chief Cities and Sustainability Strategist, Worldwide Public Sector. “Microsoft prioritizes putting people and partners first in our initiatives and Microsoft CityNext is no different. Even though cities are feeling the strain from economic challenges, we believe a new era of innovation will create opportunities for people to utilize technology to accomplish what they never thought possible. We’re inspired by our diverse partner ecosystem and know that working together we can help cities realize their full potential.”
Caribbean TECH TrendZ Ltd fundamentally believes that applicable technology deployed and consumed in the appropriate way can help citizens, cities and organizations thrive and flourish. In a time where companies are called to do “new with less”, Microsoft CityNext holds the key.
