IDC Government Insights: Worldwide Mobility and Transportation Strategies

Digital transformation is impacting all aspects of transportation and mobility, from street and highway infrastructure to new types of transportation such as autonomous cars and ride-hailing services. Meanwhile, national, regional, and local governments are struggling with increased traffic fatalities and congestion, poor air quality, escalating privacy and cybersecurity threats, social equity disparities, and community demands for better services. As a result, Smart City and smart government leaders are looking to invest in and develop solutions with private sector partners and use emerging technologies such as Big Data and analytics, the Internet of Things, cloud computing, and mobile technologies that provide innovative transportation solutions. IDC Government Insights: Worldwide Mobility and Transportation Strategies research analyzes the role of ICT in transportation and mobility across technologies, modes, and geography, identifying emerging solutions and developing concepts including best practice case studies and objective third-party assessments of smart transportation solution providers.
