Samsung SDS is pushing for a "smart town" project in Saudi Arabia after the South Korean firm recently announced a plan to downsize its business in Korea to focus on the global market, Korea Herald has reported, citing an industry source. "Samsung SDS is eyeing an ICT-based medical town in Saudi Arabia, as part of its new smart town project," said the source. "The company is to provide IT solutions to connect hospitals, hotels, schools and parking lots in the medical complex," he said. "Solutions to be applied are hospital information systems and electronic medical records for health care, a smart learning platform, automatic fare collection, and digital space convergence."
