ABSTRACT. Employing recent research results covering the relationship between citizen-centered urban governance and networked digital technologies, and building my argument by drawing on data collected from BI Intelligence, Black & Veatch, and McKinsey, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding smart applications that will be relevant for cities through 2025 and top three barriers to developing smarter cities in the U.S. (%). The results of a study based on data collected from 4,200 respondents provide support for my research model. Using the structural equation modeling and employing the probability sampling technique, I gathered and analyzed data through a self-administrated questionnaire.

Keywords: data-driven smart city; urban governance; networked digital technology
