Lyon’s originality lies in its creation of a department which deals with the entire digital life cycle: the creation of administration services (legacy), the creation of user services, governance of general interest data in the area, digital development in the area and open innovation to take advantage of digital opportunities in the transformation of public policies.

Digital technology is no longer seen as a resource function but as a public policy in its own right, with the development of the area as its vocation. Lyon is also the first to have created a Chief Data Officer position in a local government, followed by Paris. This position is essential to facilitate data flow in the area and accompany the transformation of data into value-added services.
