What Is It?


The Smarter Cities Challenge is a 3-year IBM Corporate Citizenship initiative to enable 100 cities around the world to become smarter by enhancing their capacity to collect, analyze and act upon information across multiple core systems; to apply data-driven system of systems analysis to the key problems facing cities; to create a global network through which cities can measure progress and share best practices; and to foster cross-sector partnerships that address critical challenges, enabling cities around the world to become more vibrant and livable places for all their citizens.
