Contents:
Foreword -- Preface -- List of contributors -- List of reviewers -- Contents (Index) -- Introduction -- Part I. Smart technologies implemented in public sector -- Part II. Delivery of public sector services -- Part III. Improving governance of the city -- Part IV. Organizational issues in the implementation of Smart technologies -- Conclusions.
Summary: This book examines the introduction of smart technologies into public administrations and the organizational issues caused by these implementations, and the potential of information and communication technologies (ICTs) to rationalize and improve government, transform governance and organizational issues, and address economic, social, and environmental challenges. Cities are increasingly using new technologies in the delivery of public sector services and in the improvement of government transparency, business-led urban development, and urban sustainability. The book will examine specific smart projects that cities are embracing to improve transparency, efficiency, sustainability, mobility, and whether all cities are prepared to implement smart technologies and the incentives for promoting implementation. This focus on the smart technologies applied to public sector entities will be of interest to academics, researchers, policy-makers, public managers, international organizations and technical experts involved in and responsible for the governance, development and design of Smart Cities.
