Atlas identifies digital readiness and potential for six cities

June 6th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Siemens has launched a new web-based application which reveals the readiness and potential of six major cities to embrace digitalisation and develop new ways of living, working and interacting. The Atlas of Digitalization focuses on three interconnected themes (mobility, sustainability and opportunity) and assesses how the fourth industrial revolution has already augmented urban life around the world, and the potential impact it could have in the future. Data from 21 indicators has been analysed in Dubai, Los Angeles, London, Buenos Aires, Taipei and Johannesburg to produce a Digital Readiness Score, considering areas such as smart electricity and transport systems, internet connections and digital governance services. Data from the 21 indicators has been mapped across three themes: Sustainability, Mobility and Opportunity, creating visualisation of each city’s digitalisation landscape. Visitors to the Atlas of Digitalization can interact with each city and explore its data, taking an in-depth look into how each is addressing its own challenges and opportunities, and how it will impact work and life in future cities. Data can be used to identify the needs of a city and ensure smart decision-making to advance it and make it more efficient for a growing population.
