    Abstract This paper analyses the readiness of Lahore and Multan Pakistan cities for starting smart city (SC) transformation. The methodology used was a case-oriented comparative research drawn on a conceptual framework for facilitating the analysis. The findings indicate that both cities have strong grounds for SC transformations and that Pakistan is entering in the SC concept very slowly. This readiness exercise showed that Lahore is in better position for starting the transformation into an SC; Pakistan has a disintegrated governance model and the city governments do not have enough power to proceed alone with this giant task.
