LIKE’s Smarter Services work developed new ways of working with citizens and service users to use data and information to complement efforts to co-design better services. There were three themes: 1) Data for Smarter services, 2) Local services, and 3) Channel and content strategies
I spent three years managing the Smart Cities Academic Network, which was set up to provide support to the Smart Cities Project. This case study summarises the SCAN approach and identifies the key outcomes.
Smart Cities prioritised improving customer services, adopting user profiling in service design/deliver, and exploring the potential of wireless services.
The project used a combination of co-design, targeted academic research, and mainstreaming/public engagement approaches to deliver high-impact and high-profile results that were used to make cities smarter across Europe.
The Smart Cities project brought together local authorities and academic partners from 13 cities in the North Sea region to develop and deliver better, more customer-focused electronic services. This booklet is a whistle-stop tour of the main findings and conclusions
E-government requires e-services, delivered by automated business processes and supported by information and communication technologies (ICT). The design and delivery of these services can be clarified and supported by using business architectures, information systems architectures, and technology architectures – along with the design and organisational processes used to produce these frameworks.
The Common Process Model has been developed to help you identify, measure and improve the performance of business processes.
8 case studies on how cities in northern Europe have developed their web sites, plus a comprehensive overview of different approaches to city website development.
Geographical Information Systems can be used by cities in a range of ways to deliver smarter services – these are the key lessons from the Smart Cities Project.
Co-design brings stakeholders – customers, clients, service users, citizens – into the service design process. It is a move towards user-led process design, and should lead to a user-led approach to service delivery.
This report brings together in-depth examples of co-design at work in the development of Smart Cities.
The Smart Cities Academic Network developed a systemic, accessible approach to knowledge production and dissemination that was designed to accelerate the development of e-services and e-government in Europe.
Part of an interview I did for Urban Realm magazine on Smart Cities following Glasgow’s designation as a ‘Smart City’, covering how UK cities use information, how they’ll change service delivery, and the importance of Smart Citizens.
I’ll be speaking at the 2012 PPA Digital Publishing Conference on Wednesday 26 September in London. The conference theme is ‘Into the Future’, and I’ll be exploring some of the opportunities surrounding the smart cities initiatives for providers of digital data services.
