Smart Almaty City

Almaty is the largest metropolis, scientific and educational, cultural and historical, economic and financial, banking and industrial center of Kazakhstan. The city is also considered the economic center of the Central Asia region. Almaty is in the South-East of Kazakhstan, at the foot of the Northern Tien Shan Ridge – Zaili Alatau. The urban territory of Almaty covers more than 782 km2 with about 2 million registered population. Since October 2020, Almaty City Government has initiated a 5-year Smart City strategy in collaboration with Innovative Governance of Large Urban Systems (IGLUS) action-research program. Almaty Smart City aims to create a technological architecture covering all the information systems and Information Technology (IT) infrastructure on the city level with the description of service, data and infrastructure layers. In this issue of IGLUS Quarterly, we will further investigate this technological architecture with the articles of the experts from Almaty City.
