Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to present the work done with regards to the development of an ICT architecture for Smart Local Councils in Mauritius (SLCs). This is in line with vision of the Mauritian government to convert the Mauritius into a Smart Island. Local councils play an important role in the delivery of services to citizen and their conversion to Smart Local Councils will contribute to the transformation of the island. The methodology used to develop the ICT architecture is presented. The components for each layer, based on architecture principles are discussed. The validation which include, validation against the architecture principles, validation through stakeholders’ focus groups and also validation in terms of its contribution to smartness are discussed. This paper provides added value as it shows how the gaps for converting Mauritian local councils into SLCs can be addressed through the proposed architecture. It provides the main building blocks which can aid in designing the roadmap for ICT architecture for Mauritian SLCs.
