Testimony of Christophe Sabet

What benefits do you derive from this partnership ?

Gfi is a digital transformation partner (software solutions, consulting and technological services) for the Public Sector and in particular French local authorities. 

 

 Our territories are undergoing profound climatic, technological and societal change where energy transition and resource preservation, new digital uses, and the participation of territorial actors are at the heart of our concerns. The 2020 municipal campaign has never been so much in need of transformation and ambitious projects, in a context of constrained funding.

 

 Gfi assists local authorities on a daily basis in the use of new technologies and the enhancement of data, with the aim of improving the quality of life of inhabitants and users and enabling local authorities to optimise the management of public infrastructures.

 

 Economic attractiveness while reducing the carbon footprint, energy efficiency, preservation of water and biodiversity, development of eServices for residents and businesses, the digital transformation to be carried out is that of sustainable development based on consultation with the local ecosystem, the concept of local services, the sharing and profitability of existing public infrastructures by developing their uses.

 

 In this respect, the strong link that we have with the Chair has enabled us to initiate together a new collaborative experimentation project, which consists in implementing the concept of “the city of the quarter-hour, or territory of the ½ hour” dear to Professor Carlos Moreno.

 

 The technical capabilities of a new-generation analytical data platform enable Gfi to calculate the access capacities of inhabitants to urban social functions in proximity (on foot, by bicycle, by public transport) on 6 key needs: housing, work, supplies, health care, training and personal development.

 

 By cross-referencing these data at neighbourhood, city and regional level, we obtain a direct visualization of areas with a high societal quality of life and an identification of areas requiring an adapted development policy.

 

 The main objective of this project is to provide mayors and departments of the city’s technical services with a methodology and tools to measure and match the demand of the inhabitants with the supply of services intended for them, to identify, district by district, the local resources, including associative or private resources, which will make it possible to respond to energy issues, the creation of local value, and the preservation of the environment.

 

 Instructs elected representatives to optimise land use planning and the range of services offered in order to reinvent new hyper-proximities, reduce the mobility experienced, encourage the revitalisation of urban centres and the emergence of short circuits and interactions that enhance the value of local players.
