The Digital Glasgow Strategy aims to create a world-class digital infrastructure to bring in new businesses and jobs.
The council also wants to boost the digital skills of residents, businesses and organisations.
The plan was launched today at the City Chambers, which hosted a Glasgow Digital Skills Summit, sponsored by technology giant Microsoft.
Councillor Gordon Matheson, leader of Glasgow City Council, said: "Glasgow is already recognised as an innovative city in terms of adopting technology, but in order to compete in the future we are going to take the next step to become a world leader in the digital age.
"The Digital Glasgow Strategy will help ensure that our people and firms have the skills to make the most of the opportunities presen- ted by new technology.
"These skills are essential for every one of us.
"In addition, the availability of information on digital devices such as smartphones means that the people of Glasgow will be able to engage with public services in ways that could improve all our lives."
The council says the aim of the strategy is to position Glasgow as a "leading digital city" by 2017.
