An independent analysis from the Visionary Innovation Research Group at Frost & Sullivan has named IBM the leading Smart City integrator, recognizing its deep expertise in working with thousands of cities of all sizes on Smart City initiatives. The award cites IBM for its innovative solutions designed to help cities better manage resources through the use of Big Data analytics and cloud computing. IBM provides cloud-based solutions to help cities transform all aspects of city operations, manage traffic, improve public safety and improve sustainability.

"This Frost & Sullivan award acknowledges IBM's accomplishments in helping cities around the world become smarter," said Michael J Dixon, Ph.D., general manager, IBM Smarter Cities.
