Global Select Cities and their Data and Digital Strategies Benchmarking Report 2021 – Cities with a well-structured digital strategy will be able to significantly improve livability –

DUBLIN – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – The report “Global benchmarking of selected cities and their digital data and strategies, 2021” has been added to offer.

A city’s digital strategy includes, among other things, the availability of real-time data, integrated APIs, advanced analytical capabilities and the appointment of a dedicated Chief Digital Officer (CDO). This aspect is equally important in determining the scale and speed of digitization initiatives in a city.

Digitization is the basis for the expansion of new technologies and services, new mobility solutions and smart applications in urban management. Its field of action extends to the digital performance and digital strategy of a city. In terms of digital performance, this measures a city’s performance in terms of smartphone penetration, 4G coverage and speed, 5G outlook, data security measures and innovation profile.

Southeast Asian cities are leading the pack as governments are more proactive in implementing digital solutions and collaborating with private actors and the general public to innovate solutions that address common challenges. European cities, such as London, Helsinki and Amsterdam, follow closely, as they have well-defined digital strategies and implementation timelines.

Although U.S. cities, such as Austin and New York, have the infrastructure in place (e.g. 5G networks and open data portals), they are slightly slower to implement digital solutions compared to other cities analyzed in this research service.

Cities should start migrating to smart digital systems that can give them a view of the whole city on one screen. They should follow the lead of Seoul and Singapore in putting in place the necessary infrastructure – smart traffic systems, smart street lighting, waste management systems and open data portals – to create a smart digital ecosystem. They should bring together citizens, the private sector and research institutes to collaboratively develop technological solutions that can improve livability.

ICT and automotive solution providers should focus on working more closely with various stakeholders, including municipal governments, to develop a highly scalable and robust smart urban mobility operating system that can converge , process and provide intelligence that will ensure transparent operations.

Traditional industries, including automotive and transportation, are expected to capitalize on digital technologies and develop more platform-based business models. Big data, crowdsourcing platforms, connected devices and AI will shape the future mobility of goods and passengers.
