New Online Version of Global Smart Cities Readiness Guide Helps Cities Map Their Future More Easily

WASHINGTON, March 9, 2016 — (PRNewswire) — The Smart Cities Council, the world's largest smart cities network, announced that its landmark Smart Cities Readiness Guide is now available in a web-based format. The Readiness Guide is the world's leading framework for government leaders to enhance the livability, workability and sustainability of their cities. It is currently in use by thousands of cities around the world to shape their future initiatives, from Hartford to Dubai to Mauritius to Yinchuan.

Designed for mayors, city managers, urban planners and staff, the Smart Cities Readiness Guide provides objective, vendor-neutral information to help cities make confident, educated choices about the technologies they can use to transform their city. The new version enables easier access to the 200+ case studies helping cities address the challenges of rapid urbanization, aging infrastructure, climate change and strong economic competition.

"Cities around the world are already using the Readiness Guide to make tremendous progress in achieving economic, environmental and social sustainability, and we are pleased to make it easier for cities to navigate," said Smart Cities Council Chairman Jesse Berst.

Specifically, the Smart Cities Readiness Guide helps guide cities through project selection, building business cases, reaching consensus, deployment and implementation, and measuring results.

"The Readiness Guide is an invaluable resource for our team," said Grant Ervin, Chief Resilience Officer of Pittsburgh. "It provides a common vocabulary plus lessons learned from actual smart city installations around the world."

Originally launched in 2013 as a downloadable PDF, the Readiness Guide quickly became the framework for Smart Cities Readiness Workshops which help participants assess their city's readiness to innovate. The Council's affiliate Smart Cities Council India recently published a regional Readiness Guide which is available for download here.
