This report details considerations and requirements for an ICT architecture and its data management features within a ZEN and smart cities context. It is a deliverable from Task 1.1.2 Information Management of Big Data to Achieve ZEN being part of WP1, Analytical Framework for Design and Planning of ZEN. This proposal fulfills six goals: • First, it describes how Information and communications technology (ICT) architectures can be designed in smart cities. • Second, it describes how a data management architecture can be fitted to different ICT architectures in a smart city. • Third, it describes how to integrate smart cities' large-scale Internet of Things (IoT) networks in the ICT architecture of the city large-scale management of ICT and their data management can work in smart cities' large-scale Internet of Things (IoT) networks. • Fourth, it describes how a monitoring system can be integrated in the ICT architecture. • Fifth, it describes how following up the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) identified in the ZEN center can be supported by the proposed ICT and data management architecture. • Finally, it describes what are potential extra benefits of the proposed ICT architecture, e.g., developing software services and improving the use of machine learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques in smart cities. The findings of this proposal can be beneficial for future smart cities in connection to: • Designing large-scale ICT architecture including IoT networks in a smart city. • Organize and manage obtained city-data from different sources, with a focus on IoT-sources. • Designing a KPI-based a monitoring system in smart city utilizing large-scale IoT networks.
