Digital technologies can have a significant impact in helping city executives improve the quality of life in urban areas. Swisscom was searching for the right business school partner to develop a Smart City implementation framework. The Global Center for Digital Business Transformation at IMD was the perfect partner. Together, we created a set of practical tools to help executives make their cities smarter through digitization, and published the results. We are now further developing this work for a second publication. Swisscom and IMD have engaged together in an exciting journey to make cities smarter.
