Smart decision making is based on data combined with analytics to improve decision-making. This paper examines several application areas of smart cities, and related data sources used for decision-making. Further, we present a review of analytical techniques used in earlier studies. In many cases, systems may make decisions on their own. Such autonomous systems may play an essential role in the development of smart cities. In other cases, the data can be combined with historical data or other open data sources to play a role as the foundation for decision-making. Our findings are presented as an analytical framework, which will be used for further empirical studies into this domain.
