Smart City concept has been proposed as one of the solutions to urban problems. This study aims to analyze the potential for smart city development in Indonesia from the aspects of information and communication technology. The secondary data of ICT elements in Indonesia is used to assess the condition of ICT in Indonesia and the country's readiness to implement the smart city concept. The data collection was carried out using a literature study. The ICT elements used in the analysis are from the smart city's five pillars of leverage domain, proposed by Bounachi and Korabat (2018), namely connectivity, data center, data analytics, applications, and end-users. The results of this analysis indicate that the Indonesian people from year to year experience an increase in the number of users of computers and cellphones which are ICT devices. However, in other parts of the pillar, Indonesia still needs a lot of improvement, especially in data center construction. This needs to be improved in order to maximize the storage and use of data obtained from end-users such as citizens, residents, visitors, government, public agencies, and private businesses.
