On September 12, 2017, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPE) announced a new project with long-time strategic partner, PwC, to jointly create a Center of Excellence (CoE) in Kolkata, India, to advance development for future cities.

If cities are to keep growing, city leaders must ensure that their citizens are able to travel freely and easily.
