About Smart Cities
How smart is your city?
A smart city is a city that engages and connects to its citizens.
There are no siloed ecosystems in a true smart city. Each ecosystem, be it smart energy, traffic management, or smart buildings all have an interdependency on the other, and very often need to share data and services to make the end-user experience smooth and efficient.
This Smart City Maturity and Benchmark Model has been designed to capture the key aspects of a city’s transformation journey to become a smarter city. A smart city is characterized by a high level of community and citizen engagement, by its attractiveness for businesses and by efficient and sustainable city operations.
