The IDC FEA Special Awards for Smart Cities put a spotlight on the latest innovation and transformations led by cities, local governments, and their ICT suppliers,
aimed at making cities more livable and offering new services and economic opportunities.
Citizen wellbeing refers to enhanced citizen engagement in a smart city environment resulting in increased access to healthcare, availability of a seamless education system, and reduced digital divide enabling increased access to government services to citizens irrespective of their location.
Connected cities, as part of smart city initiative, aim to interconnect various citizen-services aspects, supported with related infrastructure, harnessing the power of technologies, to result in citizen experience enhancement.
Digital policies in a smart city environment refers to the regulatory aspects that shape and control the administrative functions enabling deployment of various service, through digital platforms. Such system of approach, with strict adherence to compliance, brings better administrative control for efficient civic engagements that in turn lead to more inclusive societal and economic development.
