Data as Infrastructure for Smart Cities — Recommend this title to your library

In the previous chapters, we have described the SMARTify approach to design data infrastructures for smart cities. SMARTify is a systematic business-model-driven framework, which guides the design of large and highly interconnected data infrastructures that are provided and supported by multiple stakeholders. The framework can be used to model, elicit and reason about the requirements of the service, technology, organization, value, and governance aspects of smart cities. One of the key objectives of the method we have developed is supporting the analysis and definition of business models, requirements and the design of a reference architecture for the data infrastructure. In the article, we provide examples of the applicability of our frameworks. The nature of decisions made when designing data infrastructures using our frameworks will fundamentally vary from cities to cities. This means that some business models'components or components of the closed loop value chain may not become relevant to decision makers, while others will find necessary to incorporate all SMARTify activities rigorously to both design new data infrastructure and take current infrastructures forward. We expect that different data infrastructure projects will use SMARTify in different ways simply because their problems and goals are different. As a result, the validation of the usefulness of the framework is subject to the context in which our approach is being applied.
