This IDC Government Insights report provides a framework for conceptualizing what a Smart City is in concrete terms, the drivers of Smart City growth, key technologies and processes in Smart City solutions, and detailed guidance for both city leaders and vendors.
"City leaders are looking to invest in Smart City solutions to leverage their existing IT, data, and human resources more effectively and provide better services to citizens. Vendors are rapidly reorganizing around Smart City services offerings and, in this context, IDC Government Insights has provided a framework document for understanding Smart City solutions," states Ruthbea Yesner Clarke, research director of IDC Government Insights' Smart Cities Strategies program.
