This IDC study is designed as a companion piece for IDC's Worldwide Semiannual Smart Cities Spending Guide and provides a detailed description of the taxonomy, definitions, and methodology supporting IDC's Smart Cities research globally. The approach and structure described provide a framework to better understand Smart City trends and can help both technology suppliers and end-user organizations in planning activities and strategy definition.

"IDC's Worldwide Semiannual Smart Cities Spending Guide coverage continues to grow. In this release, we expanded details by technology, analyzed five additional use cases, and covered over 100 cities," said Serena Da Rold, program manager, IDC's Customer Insights and Analysis group. "The new release of the taxonomy provides a valuable guide to map IDC's new forecasts to the global context of digital transformation within cities."
