IDC: ´”Top 10 Smartest Cities In The World”

May 2, 2013

And the Number 1 is: Vienna, Austria

IDC Government Insights advisory services published its ranking of the “Top 10 Smartest Cities in the World” in March 2013. Cities are ranked according to their scores in 4 global categories: Innovation, Green Ranking, Quality of Life and Digital City.

And the smartest city in the world is: Vienna, Austria. The Austrian capital was the only city that ranked in the top 10 in every category. It is establishing bold smart-city targets and tracking their progress to reach these goals with programs like Smart Energy Vision 2050, Roadmap 2020, and Action Plan 2012-2015.

A smart city is defined by IDC as using information and communication technologies to be more intelligent and efficient in the use of resources, resulting in cost and energy savings, improved service delivery and quality of life, and a reduced environmental footprint--all supporting innovation and the low-carbon economy.
