Abstract

An information infrastructure for modern Smart Cities must be able to integrate data from multiple heterogeneous sources such as private and public energy consumption, garbage collection and environmental conditions (pollution, citizens’ safety and security). In this context, citizens themselves become providers of data, in the form of comments, opinions and suggestions that should be integrated within the infrastructure. A vast amount of data must be collected, organized and analysed to extract useful insights that can be transformed into actions aimed at improving the quality of life in the city. In this paper, we discuss data management issues to be addressed for bringing benefits to different categories of stakeholders in a Smart City, ranging from citizens to the Public Administration and energy providers.
