Cities everywhere face shrinking budgets, aging infrastructure and pressure to improve the delivery of services to citizens. As cities respond to these challenges, the influence of the Chief Information Officer (CIO) is expanding to help governments make more informed decisions that will help the city emerge stronger, better positioned to create jobs and spur economic competitiveness. These communities are using technology to improve their existing infrastructures and building more sustainable cities. As part of its Smarter Cities initiative, IBM is working with thousands of cities around the world to solve some of their toughest challenges to improve the daily lives of residents.
