Abstract [en]

Modern cities operate in a force field of great challenges. The introduction of digital technology may facilitate the necessary transition management of cities but calls also for a new and intelligent use of a wealth of information for coping with great many urban challenges. This paper provides an exploration of the various challenges and tasks of an intelligent city (i-city) faced with unforeseen challenges and an unprecedented supply of 'big data'. Professional data management based on solid cognitive expertise in this area seems to be a wise strategy of a modern i-city. Purpose: This paper provides an exploration of the various challenges and tasks of an intelligent city (i- city) faced with unforeseen challenges and an unprecedented supply of 'big data'. Methodology/Approach: The aim of this brief exploratory paper is to provide a sketch of the context and the force field of modern digital technology for urban areas. Our objective is to provide a positioning of Sweden - and in particular Stockholm - from the perspective of ICT use and digital technology use. Consequently, against the background of global and national ICT developments, the present paper will zoom in on Sweden and Stockholm as a reference case, so as to provide concrete and operational information in a benchmark exploration. At the end, some ingredients for a research and policy agenda will be offered. Findings: The conclusion may be drawn that Sweden is an advanced Internet-rich country, in which the top of the hierarchy is dominated by Stockholm. Clearly, this city may be seen as a role model for others in the use of Internet activities. It is a typical example of a leading i- city. Research Limitation/implication: The paper provides in a cascade form various relevant data on smart cities, from an international, national and local perspective, with the main focus on Stockholm. Originality/Value of paper: Professional data management based on solid cognitive expertise in this area seems to be a wise strategy of a modern i-city.
