OASC Ireland Smart Cities market through “de facto” standards
Global de facto standards for portability and interoperability provide a clear path to creating a true global market for smart city services. OASC advocates cities to adopt four simple mechanisms as de facto standards. The first mechanism is a driven-by-implementation approach: This implies, among other things, that communities and developers can co-create their services.
The other three mechanisms are technical: an API, a set of data models, and an open data platform, which are described more precisely but not limited in the [Open and Agile Smart Cities Background Document].
