IDC's Smart City North America Awards 2023: Winners and Finalists
In this IDC Perspective, municipalities and organizations are extremely proud of their work and are often very thoughtful in the projects they fund and their implementation. These initiatives do not often get noticed or promoted; they should because they showcase the great daily work that municipalities are doing. The Smart Cities North America Awards (SCNAA) plays an important role in IDC's efforts to comprehend and monitor the future of Smart City initiatives implemented by municipalities throughout the United States. However, their significance goes beyond this. They serve as a means to showcase the best practices of forward-thinking municipalities and regional governments whose innovative responses have become a vital platform for both cities and tech companies to demonstrate their capabilities and accomplishments.
"IDC foresees SCNAA as an important platform for both cities and technology companies to showcase their prowess and achievements, facilitating the exchange of best practices and ideas in the Smart City industry and technology market in the coming years," says Ruthbea Yesner, VP, IDC Government Insights — Education, Smart Cities, and Communities.
