Dell on 15 April 2016 released its ranking of Future Ready Economies Model globally. As per the ranking, San Jose topped the list of 50 future-ready cities around the world that are embracing technology to adapt and thrive in an ever changing and globalised future.

The national capital Delhi was ranked 44th in the list.

The Future-Ready Economies Model scores large, high-growth global metropolitan areas based on attributes that enable people and organisations to access new tools and ideas that deliver better connectivity, better economic performance and a greater ability to attract talent.

The rankings were compiled by IHS Economics based on proxy indicators that define the insights and criteria developed at the 2015 Strategic Innovation Summit: Enabling Economies for the Future, hosted by Harvard University and sponsored by Dell.

The model is meant as a tool for cities to gauge their preparation for future growth.

The cities positioned in the list were evaluated along three dimensions, which are:

• Human Capital: A Future-Ready Economy has people equipped with the right skills to drive meaningful social and economic change.
• Infrastructure: A Future-Ready Economy has the infrastructure necessary to support the people, businesses, and technology that enable progress over time.
• Commerce: A Future-Ready Economy provides sustained opportunities for businesses to accelerate innovation, growth and profitability.

5.    Washington, DC
