The Quest for Commercial Sustainability of Smart City Initiatives Continues

This 2016 Real-Time Cities survey monitors the focus areas of work, state of development, roadmaps, and opportunities for ICT solutions providers. It is a parallel survey to the 2015 Frost & Sullivan iteration, gathering inputs from mostly new participants.
A true Real-Time City exploits its repositories of data as they are generated, along with network and sensor infrastructure and the expertise of its ICT partners. It thus aims to optimise the pursuit of its policy goals and build a foundation to create commercially viable services.

Questions Addressed Include: 
What are the main goals of real-time city initiatives?
Who are the providers and users of data?
How are cities adopting open source software?
How are cities financing their digital services projects?
How are they collaborating?
