Transparency, Accountability » Using Data to Drive Urban Transformation Pike Research

Transparency, Accountability » Using Data to Drive Urban Transformation Pike Research | Urban Life | Scoop.it

The most obvious use of city data is for the city authorities and service providers to become better at collecting, analyzing and acting on information about how the city works. While public sector organizations – not only city authorities – have gone a long way in creating modern IT-based front- and back-office organizations, they have generally been much slower than the private sector to use the power of data analysis to understand how to improve those processes.

 

This is now changing, and city authorities are beginning to understand the power of data analytics. But even with cloud computing and software-as-a-service models helping to reduce costs and speed up deployment, data analytics and advanced information management systems still involve a significant upfront investment, and payback depends on finding efficiencies and improvements in services.

 

A more radical – but complementary – approach is to open the data to third parties to allow them to provide new services and new insights. This is one reason why cities are at the forefront of the movement for open government data.

Refaire société : La ville Cyborg « InternetActu.net | Urban Life | Scoop.it

La science-fiction s’est toujours intéressée à l’usage incontrôlé de la technologie et la manière dont elle transforme l’homme, la société et son environnement. Elle s’est bien sûr intéressée au premier d’entre eux, la ville, qu’elle soit technologique, immatérielle ou numérique, explique le philosophe Philippe Simay, rédacteur en chef à La vie des idées et à Metropolitiques.eu.
