City leaders around the world are working to improve the quality of life and increase the number of useful services for their citizens, businesses, and visitors. Smart city initiatives are gaining attention in several countries, as administrators, industry, and citizens are working together to enhance their communities, cities, regions, and nations. After more than ten years of smart city hype, innovative projects have emerged, but few have provided a disruptive impact on the city system itself. Because every city is different, few of the existing models apply universally. An effective response requires leaders to consider a series of prerequisites:
• Consider the local culture and the people • Prioritize basic needs and requests • Work at overcoming silos and encourage collaboration across departments • Consider each “smart” initiative as an integral part of an overall city system

In August 2008, Computerworld invited IT and business leaders to participate in a core network services survey, that included specific questions about their DNS infrastructures and the costs of IP address management. The survey was fielded via targeted broadcasts to Computerworld customers, as well as through an invitation on Computerworld.com. The survey was commissioned by Infoblox, but the data was gathered and tabulated independently by Computerworld Research. The following report represents top-line results of that survey.
This research program is an online survey of C-level executives at leading large and midsize companies who are members of the BusinessWeek Market Advisory Board, an online panel of 20,000+
business leaders and executives.

Agile and innovative companies like Netflix, Instagram, Amazon, Airbnb, and Uber have used exponential technologies to completely disrupt their industries. But some of the largest industries in the world have fallen prey to these and other disruptive companies. And most of them didn’t even see it coming. The convergence of exponential technologies, along with bold thinking and the willingness to take risks, is completely altering the business landscape. And that landscape is changing at an accelerating pace.
Disruption is occurring far more quickly than ever before. On average, an S&P 500 company is being replaced every 2 weeks, and over 40% of today’s Fortune 500 companies on the S&P 500 will no longer exist within 10 years. The only options are to disrupt yourself or be disrupted by your competition. Which will you choose? If you choose the former, do you know how to proceed? This guide shares strategies you can employ today to start future-proofing your company.
