New ways of harnessing data, To meet the growth in data sizes new technology solutions are appearing that are able to harness this new data. source such as back end systems that use in memory computing and massively parallel processing systems a. technique made popular by search engine companies such as Google and Yahoo Techniques and methods of. managing its integration have also appeared such as data virtualisation efficient processing of unstructured data. and advanced machine learning that is able to identify patterns across large data sets. The use of data has changed from tapping into stagnant pools to harnessing it as it is generated and as it flows. To handle volumes cloud based solutions are emerging in order to lower the cost of managing data and to. provide for scalability leveraging economies of scale.

An ability to provide for enhanced second tier cross department and agency support to the citizen and. moving away from operations that work in silos, Caution however needs to be exercised in terms of the expectation of the capabilities of Big Data in the areas. such as city planning Due to the nature and complexity of cities no matter how much data is available the city. managers and planners are confronted by a so called wicked problem 8 where there are too many variables to. be pulled that can affect a desired outcome or state Here heuristics and approaches based on the experience of. city managers still need to be exercised, Combining software and wetware i e human mind and by adopting strategies that are flexible and that require. lowered adoption hurdles cities can through the weaving of a real time nerve centre place themselves at the. forefront of service excellence This infrastructure is often already in place and only needs a realignment with the. developing technological trends to track along the path to becoming smart. Smart Cities Big Data January 2015 5,Conclusion, Big Data is an essential component that is driving the Smart Cities movement along with more general advances.
in technology This is informing new forms of consumption with citizens and the demand for services that are. underpinned by smarter systems The social contract for taking care of citizens remains for cities that prompt its. managers to consider and invest in appropriate processes and systems to support this mandate In this certain. best practices have emerged and others are indeed still to emerge as this is a dynamic environment Cities that. make use of the current state of the art approaches which can be benchmarked against international standards. are positioned for future success and may have the opportunity for advancing society forward to a smarter future.
