2014 Big Data & Connected Cities
The Connected City concept involves harnessing a broad set of information flows to improve the quality of existing city services, to enable new services, and to create a substantial growth engine for the local economy. The report recommends the ongoing engagement of Boston City officials, industry leaders, and academics, in defining the Connected City vision for Boston, and to then identify responsibilities for directing and managing the process of migrating Boston towards becoming the leading Connected City.
The report finds that big data can:
- dramatically improve the quality of existing city services;
- enable new and better services;
- provide existing services at lower cost;
- and provide greater transparency of government services, enabling a more informed citizenry and inclusive form of government.
