Chapter 1: The Starting Points Of The Data Strategy

Helsinki’s Data Strategy takes its cue from the objectives of the city’s Digitalisation Programme, launched by municipal leaders in March 2019. The programme outlines how Helsinki plans to utilise digitalisation in order to achieve its strategic aim of becoming the most functional city in the world, not to mention the city that best capitalises on state-of-the-art digital advances. Development of Helsinki’s data capabilities is a central tenet of the Digitalisation Programme. Without data, none of the programme’s strategic goals can be attained, as a digital leap is reliant on the efficient use of data and artificial intelligence.
