This IDC study provides a systematic approach to understanding Canadian cities' maturity across five key dimensions: vision, culture, process, technology, and data. The model helps local governments assess how they are adapting to new competitive challenges. The study also provides objective data to help organizations accurately assess their ability to deliver innovative urban solutions in a fast-changing, competitive environment.
According to Dr. Alison Brooks, director of Public Sector research, IDC Canada, "This study will help Canadian cities, and the IT vendors supplying services to this unique market, determine the overall maturity of the Canadian market and what concrete steps need to be taken to create thriving Canadian Smart Cities in the future."
