How it works

Find out how digital technology is driving outcomes in your city

A key input into city strategic planning, the Index measures how digital innovation is improving economic and social outcomes for a community.

Using open-data, primary and secondary research we aim to provide unbiased insights. The GWI Index ranks cities globally for smart city readiness and their capacity to use data effectively, comparing over 600 cities, including 530 from Australia.

With over eight areas of measurement that are updated quarterly, the Index provides a readiness rating against a simple, easy-to-use scale that meets the needs of all stakeholders.
