AvePoint Public Sector, Inc., an independent subsidiary of AvePoint, Inc., today announced it is working with Microsoft on 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 CityNext initiative, Microsoft and AvePoint Public Sector 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.
“Our participation in Microsoft CityNext demonstrates our commitment to helping cities innovate now and modernize for the future. Microsoft solutions will provide us with greater opportunities to help city customers transform their operations through familiar, secure technology and devices; engage citizens and businesses through social media and apps; and accelerate innovation opportunities through community development and workforce training programs,” said Chris Foreman, CEO, AvePoint Public Sector. “Through CityNext, AvePoint Public Sector will be able to help cities meet the needs of growing populations, ensuring they are able to get the most out of their knowledge management solutions while collaborating with confidence.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with AvePoint Public Sector on CityNext. Microsoft prioritizes putting people and partners first in our initiatives and CityNext is no different,” said Laura Ipsen, corporate vice president Microsoft Worldwide Public Sector. “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.”
