Digital Transformation of Citizen Services

The City is leveraging data and new technology to make government more efficient, effective, and open. Several initiatives are involved, including using data to drive efficiency and effectiveness, increasing and improving city data, and leveraging technology to improve communications.

The City’s Smart City Strategy has a system-wide view and an integrated approach focusing on three core smart city functions: collect, communicate and crunch data to proactively engage with residents.
