By: Linda ChandlerResearch Director, IDC Government Insights, Europe, Massimiliano ClapsResearch Director


This IDC Perspective looks at the agility and resiliency aspects of IDC's Five Stages to Enterprise Recovery model for the COVID-19 crisis and its applicability to cities and municipalities. It helps technology buyers in city administration understand how digital solutions are underpinning agility, focusing on how resilience and a green recovery are shaping more long-term recovery strategies at an increasingly local level.

"Across Europe, technology-enabled solutions have played a central role in demonstrating agility and enabling collaboration of response in the early stages the pandemic. However, as cities focus on the next phase from recession to growth, technology needs to demonstrate the ability to underpin economic development strategies at a local level and enable policy and society to create lasting change that solves urban stresses such as inequality, transport diversity, and climate change," says Linda Chandler, research director, IDC Government Insights.
