Digital technologies are reshaping the cities from the original to a virtual world. Digitalization or digital transformation is the focal priority of the present & future agenda or policies within the national and international platform. The inherent and forthcoming challenge of the 21st century is to high-grade people way of living in cities, and the idea of digitalization & urbanization is inaugurating an innovative horizon for sustainable infrastructure and stable economic development for the global cities. Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), big data analytics and internet of things (IoT) are impersonating a floor for intelligent data generation to manage long terms settlements, planning and sustainable infrastructure for digital business and smart cities following initiatives. Global cities digitalization is also putting some new humane questions, and dilemmas concerning privacy, safety and security. There is a need for a clearer vision at the global level for the development of healthy competition throughout the cities of the globe which require the real potential of urbanization to experience shared accomplishment and exterminate poverty. The critical barrier here is to see for a collective negotiation among stakeholders, local population and business associations for developing transparency in policies, communication and mutual partnerships.
