    SMART CITIES AS PLATFORMS ENABLING THE DATA ECONOMY
    FIWARE envision the city as a platform that breaks vertical information silos by creating a Context Information Management layer that provides a complete picture of what is going on the city. The City becomes an enabler of a right-time open data marketplace, where right-time and historic information from inside the City can be merged together with data from external data providers, which can then be monetized. This data space will enable not only better governance of the City and management of City Services (predictive and prescriptive models) but the creation of new innovative services by third parties. Partnering with front-runner cities that share the vision, FIWARE is leading the definition of implementation-driven standards in this area.
