Powering Digital Transformation in Smart Cities: The Role of Smart Buildings Report

The adoption and growth of Smart Cities worldwide is accelerating the digital transformation of our urban environments. Smart Cities look to harness the data from smart devices, networks, cloud infrastructure, and applications and analytics to develop new insights, as well as new products and services, that support sustainable economic development. Smart buildings, whether publicly or privately owned, can serve as an important catalyst for that growth.

Commissioned by TIA, this International Data Corporation (IDC) report discusses how smart buildings can be a both a microcosm of a smart city and an integral building block for smart communities. It explores how urban policy makers, building owners, real estate developers, and technology vendors can maximize the benefits generated by smart technologies in public and private facilities in urban environments.

Cooperative development of smart buildings is important because it will help attract and retain businesses, residents and tourists to support sustainable city growth and, at the same time, help cities meet their environmental targets and build out needed communications infrastructure. Perhaps most importantly, when properly executed, it can help communities close the digital divide among citizens by boosting common access points.
