  5. 5. Emerging Mega Cities Will Have World Class Infrastructure and DevelopSub Satellite Towns (e.g. Chennai) 2000 – Satellite Towns 2015 – World Class 2020 + Interconnectivity with Developing Infrastructure (Equals Tier 2 city) Sub Satellite Towns Core City Outsourcing companies (non Development of infrastructure Satellite IT), like research to connect Satellite and Sub Commercial Towns healthcare, auto manufacturing Satellite towns to utilities hubs will increase number of satellite towns Global Mega Trend Relevance to Smart Water Grids As urban regions become more complex, greater logistical and operational demands will be placed on water utilities in terms of supply, distribution and waste. A key characteristic of all Mega Trends is the use of ICT technologies to enable smarter management processes to handle and process the amplified demands. 5
