This IDC study is designed as a companion piece for IDC's Worldwide 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 Smart Cities Spending Guide coverage continues to grow. In the past year, we doubled the detail by technology, analyzed six additional use cases, and doubled the number of cities to over 200," 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."
