Description / Objectives
Using data in order to offer better services to the general public and optimise internal processes involves having the appropriate tools for doing so.
The City Council is organising a powerful infrastructure based on open-code Big Data technology, which uses single-window access and internal data management, known as a "Data Lake".
This infrastructure provides better data governance, quality controls, more effective privacy and security and, above all, it gives the City Council a global vision of this area.
CityOS will work with both internal City Council data (adjudication of contracts, subsidies, Municipal Action Plan projects, districts, etc.) and with external agencies with information on the city that are under municipal control, although the City Council does not directly manage them (transport, energy, environment, etc.)
Having a unified point of access to data will also improve the publication of open data and it will enrich, align and harmonise the work of various City Council areas in order to achieve a structure where city decision-making is based on informed decisions ("data driven").
Using CityOS, the City Council can distribute municipal resources better and offer new services that are better adapted to the needs of city residents.
