19 Oct 2015
Singapore, 19 October, 2015 – IDC Asia/Pacific announced today the most outstanding Smart City Initiatives in Asia Pacific excluding Japan (APeJ) in 14 Smart City functional eServices following the launch of the AP Smart City Evolution Index competition last July 2015. Singapore and Mainland China are the big winners, having topped 4 and 3 categories, respectively.
The complete list of winners in the 14 categories are:
IDC Government Insights went through a rigorous three-phased benchmarking exercise to determine the Top Smart City initiative winners for 2015. These included identifying and cataloging the key Smart City projects in Asia/Pacific by IDC Analysts across APeJ, online voting to determine public opinion, and the assessment of an International Advisory Council.
Last August 2015, a comprehensive public survey was conducted with 500 unique entries submitted from the APeJ region focusing on the shortlisted cities competing in the 14 categories. This was followed by a voting session by an international panel of senior IDC analysts from the US and EMEA regions.
The winners of the AP Smart City Evolution Index competition will be recognized at the 2015 Asia Pacific Leading Smart City and Vendor Awards Gala Dinner to be held at the 2015 Asia Pacific Smart City Development Forum on November 17, 2015 in Shenzhen, China.
