Consulting in the context of Urban Data
A meaningful use of urban data is the foundation of the smart city. More and more data is being generated in the urban environment, and new possibilities are emerging for its use. This could be to make well-founded decisions, to optimize processes, to carry out simulations or to better communicate decisions . The task is to identify relevant data, provide it securely, process it in compliance with data protection regulations, and use it in such a way that it creates added value for citizens, administrations, and businesses.
If you have often asked yourself these or similar questions, then you have come to the right place. With our expertise, we will be happy to help you master the numerous challenges surrounding urban data. We can advise you in all areas. Starting with the technology and infrastructure to be used and the internal organization of data sharing, to the management of data exchange with municipal operations, citizens or third-party providers.
Depending on your current status, we work with you to lay the foundation for the use of urban data or develop concrete implementation strategies and specific data applications.
From data strategies to implementation support, we advise you in the field of urban data.
Training / Urban Data Introduction Seminar
Our one-day training helps you and up to five of your colleagues to gain clarity on technical terms around the topics of smart city and urban data. The goal is to provide you with all relevant knowledge around urban data. Afterwards, you will receive training materials and an initial outline for next steps. We will develop these together at the end of the day in an interactive format.
Plattform Kick Off
Do you want to implement the data platform, but need to first identify, inform and convince relevant stakeholders?
We would be happy to help you with this! Our stakeholder map can help you identify all relevant parties. Afterwards, we will gladly organize and moderate a first workshop where we gather them and develop a vision together.
Data Readiness Check
Which data already exists in your municipality? Is this data of usable quality? who manages its access?
These are classic questions at the beginning of a data strategy. With our proven data readiness analysis, we assess your status quo and point out the next steps.
Data Government & Management
Do you first want to approach the topic of urban data from a theoretical side and create the framework conditions for successful implementation?
We can help you with our Urban Data Governance Framework, which we developed together with the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft. Based on this framework, we design your specific data management and data governance strategy.
Do you have specific challenges that you would like to solve with data? We would be happy to organize workshops in creative formats with you and our pool of experts to develop specific solutions. Here, we use proven methods such as design thinking or organize a hackathon.
Together with our partner Fraunhofer Fokus, we are happy to advise you on technical issues. Which technical implementation is best suited for your city? Why is a cloud cheaper than on premise and what are the advantages? What is open source and what does it mean for you?
