CityOS

Description / Objectives

Use data to offer better services and optimise internal processes.

The City Council is organising infrastructure based on open-code Big Data technology, which uses single-window access and internal data management, known as a "Data Lake": City OS.

This infrastructure provides better data governance, quality controls, more effective privacy and security and, above all, it gives the City Council an overview of this area. The City Council also has a structure in which the city makes informed, data driven decisions.

CityOS works with both internal City Council data (adjudication of contracts, subsidies, Municipal Action Plan projects, districts, etc.) and with external agencies under municipal control which hold information on the city, although the City Council does not directly manage them (transport, energy, environment, etc.).
