IESE Business School in Barcelona has released the data and rankings for the world’s smartest cities for 2019. The IESE Cities in Motion Index (CIMI) is now on its sixth year and the research is led by IESE professors Pascual Berrone and Joan Enric Ricart. This year’s index covered a total of 174 cities (79 of them capitals) representing 80 countries.
The authors stressed in their study that no matter how good the city’s strategy is, without the active collaboration of the public sector, private companies, civic organizations, academic institutions, and government, nothing will be possible and it will be destined for failure.
Collaboration with IoT data is spelled YGGIO.
