In a bid to plan a “smart and accessible city”, the Pune Smart City Development Corporation Ltd. (PSCDCL) has partnered with University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney that would help the city fulfill its digital innovation agenda with big-data analytics.

Pune has already established itself as a leader in innovative and sustainable use of information and communications technology (ICT) for transforming governance and delivery of municipal services.

“UNSW takes pride in the cutting-edge and rigorous research work it undertakes. The university has forged strong collaborations with Australian government departments, as well as with countries abroad so that students can work on research with a real-life application approach. This Pune initiative furthers this endeavour,” Amit Dasgupta, India Director, UNSW, said in a statement on Saturday.

UNSW Sydney has come together with PSCDCL to develop the city as a “Living Lab”‘ – to explore and equip Pune with an advanced smart-city infrastructure, replete with a set of toolkit, platform and models enabling the corporation and local public and private stakeholders to collaborate in a digital environment.

“Practical applications of the use of big-data analytics tools during the workshop would allow public policymakers to visualise and test possible future-city growth scenarios,” said the university. The feedback and lessons from the workshop would help development localised educational material and training modules focused on smart cities and big data.

One of the hardest areas of selling a house in Sydney is coming up with a fair price to put it on the market. A lot of people try and fail to do this themselves and end up causing themselves a lot of unnecessary problems. They end up putting their property up for too low a price and proceed to lose out on a lot of potential money, or else put it up for too high a price and receive little to no offers. That’s why it’s really important that you come up with as accurate a value for your property as possible, and that’s why we believe you should be checking out Valuations NSW. But just who are these guys, and how can they help you come up with a good value? Don’t worry, we’re here to explain just that. 

In short, Valuations NSW are a company whos main job is to come up with a value for a property that you’re thinking of selling. They are based in Sydney and focus the majority of their efforts in this area, so if you are selling here then you should definitely check them out.

They also don’t sell any real estate of their own, nor are they involved in this industry at all. This is another important factor when you’re thinking of choosing them to work with; you know they aren’t being biased or unfair with any of their valuations as they have no alliances to be biased towards. Each of their valuations will be as accurate and unbiased as humanly possible, again giving you a great opportunity to get your property on the market at a fair price.
