This study aimed to determine the far-reaching impact of the development of information technology and the enormous digital digitization data in achieving sustainable development through smart cities and highlighting the latter as the main product for achieving sustainable development. Based on the descriptive approach to highlight the concepts related to the study and clarify the relationship between technical information and big data to achieve smart cities, using the analytical method in highlighting the obstacles that he behind the inability of Arab countries to achieve smart cities.

The study found that access to the building of smart cities requires excellent technological power, high control of the vast data, and the world of electronic digitization. This can be achieved through the convergence of many parties and governmental institutions, social, economic, and security, with the provision of large funding to contribute to the requirements of smart cities’ sustainable development.


The 21st century is defined by a tremendous technological revolution, especially in recent years through micro-electronic software, electronic digitization, and the so-called cloud. At the same time, the world knows a terrible increase in the volume of data related to business, population, and the multiplicity of their needs. Economic, social, and service, as well as increased exploitation of resources are characterized by irrational depletion, especially as companies grow around cities.

This has made many international and technological organizations and environmental organizations look into how to control and use this data through information technology, adapting it to achieve a sustainable human life that provides all services, with a healthy life for the individual and ensuring that the right of generations is preserved from Resource depletion.

The aim of the study is to determine the role of information technology and electronic digitization in light of big data in building sustainable cities. Therefore, the question of the problematic study is formulated as follows:

How do it and electronic digitization lead to sustainable cities?

The study hypothesizes that it and electronic digitization in the light of big data lead to sustainable cities by building smart cities, which are characterized by a sustainable digital ecology as the result of the combination of massive technological development and the big data of the digitized world, which combines the natural environment with the evolution of the growing digital cloud.

This study is organized as follows. The first section highlights information technology and electronic digitization in the age of big data and its relationship with smart cities. The second section provides a definition of smart cities, their characteristics. A fourth section illustrates the challenges facing Arab countries in the development of smart cities and shows the frameworks for the construction of smart sustainable cities to manage these challenges.
