This IDC study provides an analysis of business analytics solution providers that cater to the Smart City market. Business intelligence and analytics are central to Smart City initiatives as these solutions are what puts the "smart" in Smart Cities.
"Cities need to have an independent assessment of which vendors can provide the best solution for their needs," said Ruthbea Yesner Clarke, research director for IDC's Smart Cities practice. "The vendors studied for this IDC MarketScape are among the few business analytics vendors that have specific offerings geared toward Smart Cities and are addressing the most important characteristics for Smart Cities. This report will help city decision makers understand their options more fully."
