The Smart Cities Council’s Readiness Guide makes it easier for mayors, city managers, urban planners and city staff to leverage a Smart City framework to improve local liveability, workability and sustainability.

The new online version of the Guide provides more than 200 case studies on how cities tackled rapid urbanization, aging infrastructure and climate change challenges.

It also offers vendor-neutral information about Smart City technologies to help cities make educated purchasing decisions.

The guide is organized by sectors such as energy management, telecommunications, transportation, water and waste management, health and human services, public safety and smart finances.

It also examines technology enablers such as instrumentation and control, connectivity, interoperability, security and privacy, data management, computing resources and analytics.

The online version enables city planners to click on these resources and build a plan that focuses on the appropriate functions, features and best practices that will yield results with minimum cost and risk.
