IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Smart Cities and Communities 2024 Predictions
This IDC study provides our top 10 predictions for Smart Cities and Communities.
"We have seen a rise in a strategic approach by municipalities to think of Smart City investments with an eye toward the future — future needs of the public, future scalability, and future disruption. We have also seen how tech innovation changes the landscape of services, policies, and skill sets with the rise in generative AI," said Ruthbea Yesner, vice president, Government Insights, Education, and Smart Cities and Communities at IDC. "As a result, more local and regional governments understand the need to get digital data and technology foundations to be better prepared to embrace current and future technologies to meet social, environmental, and financial outcomes."
