Overview

Smart Cities catalyze the digital transformation of urban ecosystems to produce systemic environmental, financial, and social outcomes. Smart Cities are, by definition, focused on using emerging technologies and innovation to make cities more livable, and offer new services and economic opportunities. The cities in the Asia Pacific have made significant strides in the Smart Cities arena leveraging technology and realigning with the needs and expectations of citizens and residents. To recognize outstanding Smart Cities projects, IDC is launching its 5th Smart City Asia Pacific Awards (SCAPA). These 2019 awards will recognize the progress Asia Pacific municipalities have made and also provide a forum for sharing the best practices to help accelerate Smart City development in the region.
