FIWARE has produced a guide for the digital transformation of cities.

Making a city “smart” means managing services more efficiently and inclusively and making the city into in ICT enabler for innovation. It also means using the right technology to exploit data purposefully enabling better decisions to improve the daily lives of citizens.

Adopting common data models and being part of a powerful ecosystem in which members can connect, collaborate, co-create and co-invest allows a digital marketplace of interoperable and portable solutions that can be adapted and replicated according to the needs of each city or intercommunities.

Cities that adopt this open and forward-looking mindset have already proven to be faster, more efficient and not subject to vendor lock-in.
