The article presents scientific, practical and methodological results of evaluating the effectiveness of implementing «smart city» elements. The main problems of digitalization of the urban environment in Russia are highlighted. The concepts of «smart city» and «digitalization» are revealed. Digitalization is considered as the introduction of digital technologies. A model of a «smart city» is constructed and the trajectory of urban development according to the SMAT CITY 3.0 vector is revealed. The efficiency indicators of the digital transformation of urban economy are determined and methods for evaluating the effectiveness of
the implementation of «smart cities» (the city's IQ index): index and integral indicators. The integral method is based on a score. The index method is based on determining the maximum and minimum values. Enter the variable t (time). Time in assessing the effectiveness of digital transformation of cities is a new opportunity to realize the professional abilities of the population and the productive recovery of human life parameters. The score is based on performance indicators for implementing «smart city» elements, and the threshold values for this indicator are determined. The threshold values are compared with the current data. Regions of Russia with low and high efficiency of smart cities implementation are identified. The city of Moscow was put in the first place with a high efficiency of implementing «smart cities».
