Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

2010 challenge

In Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, two IBM teams set out to help the city achieve its vision of becoming the "Pearl of Asia" by exploring how technology can advance several areas, including transportation, water, food safety and e-government. Each team provided a detailed report, with the second team building on the work of the first, outlining high level recommendations as well as a concrete set of seven collaborative technology pilots and a few transformational programs that can be undertaken immediately.
