Open Data Strategies of Real-time Cities

Open Data Strategies of Real-time Cities

This market insight is part of Frost & Sullivan's Real-time Cities Research Program. In recent years, it has become evident that cities see an opportunity to stimulate economic growth by opening up their substantial sources of data to digital services innovators. To become true real-time cities, they strive to do more than simply publish existing information online. Differentiation lies in the foundations they put down in terms of data strategy, governance structures, and partnerships. Historically, the city of Moscow's smart city initiatives have received only moderate recognition. However, this is changing. Having attracted significant attention over the last couple of years, the Russian capital is establishing itself as a 'must' on the watch-lists of smart city observers, thanks to ingenuity and commitment.
