Smart Cities are the most challenging and promising technological solutions for absorbing the increasing pressure of population growth, while simultaneously enforcing a sustainable economic progress as well as a higher quality of life. Several technologies are involved in a potential Smart City deployment, although data are the fuel to achieve the demanded and mandatory smartness. Data can be obtained from multiple sources, in large quantities, and with a variety of formats, therefore, an appropriate management is critical for their effective usage. Data life cycle models constitute an effective trend towards developing an integral and efficient data management framework, from data creation to data consumption and removal. In this paper we present the Smart City Comprehensive Data LifeCycle (SCC-DLC) model, a data management architecture generated from a comprehensive scenario agnostic model, tailored for the particular scenario of Smart Cities. We define the management of each data life phase, and describe its implementation on a Smart City with Fog-to-Cloud (F2C) resources management, an architecture that combines the advantages of both cloud and fog strategies.
