4 GCN MARCH 2013 • GCN.COM Inside [the index] What will smart cities get smart about this year? The global smart city movement is becoming a significant force for open data, and municipal IT innovation and investment. Several key issues will influence the direction of the program this year, according to IDC Government Insight. The market researcher has released its smart city predictions for 2013, a list of business drivers and technology trends that will shape the local government IT landscape this year. From the top 10 list, here are the 5 technology trends to watch: 1. Smart city information challenges will begin to be framed as big data issues. 2. Local government will remain in the research and evaluation stage regarding machine-to-machine tech- nologies, with growth in very specific city functions mostly for medium- size to large cities. 3. Cities with open data initiatives will drive 50 percent more private, citizen and crowd-sourced mobile applications. 4. Local government will connect to citizens via mobile devices and social media, accelerating a new type of citizen/government relationship. 5. 70 percent of spending on smart city projects worldwide will focus on energy, transportation, and public safety projects. --- GCN Sta 20 8 NEWS ANALYSIS Do you know the 4 denial of service types that can threaten your DNS servers? 12 NEWS ANALYSIS Capitol Hill lawmakers ban Spotify P2P for security, legal issues. 13 REVIEW New Onset HOBO data loggers go indoors for temps and humidity readings.
