NextGen Technologies in e-Governance

Electronic Governance is an upcoming and emerging trend to re-invent the way the Government works. When we hear the word “electronic”, the first thing that strikes our mind is a technology driven Governance. e-Governance related initiatives are being adopted at various levels of State and Central Government.   The focus of e-Governance includes enhanced service delivery mechanism due to increased attention, increased productivity and wider access of information. eGovernment can facilitate transformation of citizen service, empowerment of citizens by providing access to information, enable their participation in government and enhance citizen economic and social opportunities, so that they can make sophisticated lives, for themselves and for the next generation.

NextGen Technologies in e-Governance

There is no doubt whatsoever that e-Governance concept is riding high and trends in this sector are catching up and that is why we at ITVar News are interacting with respective Vendors catering to the Government sector to get an insight about the governments organization catered, solutions offered and what all are the NextGen Technologies in e-governance that will be shaping up the future of Govt. organizations.

Oracle products deliver on the critical requirement of eGov applications

On being asked about Oracle’s offerings when it comes to e-governance product based solutions at various levels of Government organizations, Sudhir Aggarwal, Senior Director, Government Business Development, Oracle India, informed that Oracle is in a unique position to offer a complete, open, and integrated suite of solutions from disk to applications. Oracle offers comprehensive development, deployment, and management tools and Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS)   solutions. Oracle has IBUs (Industry Business Units) and subject matter experts to help create the most suitable solutions for government customers. Oracle also has ISV (Independent Software Vendor) solutions to support governments in building eGov solution. In addition, Oracle’s innovative Engineered Systems , such as the Exadata Database Machine, the Exalogic Elastic Cloud and the most recent innovations of Exalytics, Big Data Appliance, SPARC SuperCluster and the Database Appliance offer extreme performance. These engineered systems come assembled and debugged, with all components factory-tuned, all failure-mode tests completed, and ready to run. Their deployment is a lot faster and easier and significantly less risky.

Oracle products deliver on the critical requirement of eGov applications like security, integration, interoperability, agility, access to eGov applications through ever evolving multi-devices. Oracle Public Sector solutions are supported by expert implementation specialists and a worldwide partner ecosystem.

Oracle is committed to supporting governments with the next wave of computing through their iGovernment framework. Oracle iGovernment offers technology and tools to move beyond e-governance – to develop flexible systems that integrate multiple functions and departments. It provides the foundation to continue the evolution of government computing by increasing integration across agencies, automating more complex and varied functions, and making systems more accessible to a greater number of users.

On being asked about the NextGen Technologies in e-governance that will be shaping up the future of Govt. organizations, he informed, Whether they’re federal, national, defense, state or local,  organizations around the world see the ability to analyze large volumes of diverse data as an important  new tool for reducing costs, improving efficiency, and delivering more effective services to  constituents. The promise of better financial and performance outcomes, thanks to successful big data strategies helps explain why even during times of constrained budgets, governments around the world are eyeing investments in big data. Some of the recent Oracle acquisitions are distinctly right fit for eGov applications like Oracle Endeca Information Discovery is an enterprise data discovery platform for advanced yet intuitive exploration and analysis of complex and varied data—structured, semi-structured, and unstructured. 

Likewise, driven by citizens’ rising expectations and the fluid movement of goods, services, and citizens across regional and even global borders, governments are being challenged to boost efficiency, share services, and provide a single view across government departments. This demand is offset by the need for privacy and the need for appropriate access rights to personal data. The combination of identity management suites and SOA platforms—together with an up-front analysis of the cross-organizational workflow to support integrated services delivery—will support the government adoption of identity-driven services.

‘e-ID’ is the precursor for accessing identity-driven services. With e-ID, users are identified and authenticated using digital documents. Depending on the application, e-ID can be used for identification; authentication; electronic signature; and data storage, retrieval, and transfer. e-ID is being seen as major differentiator in Socio-economic benefits to target people with enhanced transparency and much ease. Today’s e-ID technology supports tighter border security, protection for the vulnerable, and enhanced crime detection.

Portals facilitate federation across multiple government organizations. As such, they can provide a first step to integrating existing data silos while also leaving them relatively untouched. With these portals, composite applications and shared services delivery can begin to emerge.

Organizations can no longer hard code security inside their applications. They need to leverage security as a service and extract security out of their applications. Secure interoperability, based on identity management solutions, enables substantial cost savings, streamlined processes, and faster communication of vital information to the benefit of governments and citizens.

Although software components for single sign-on provide unified single sign-on and authentication across multiple government agencies and departments, they are the tip of the integration iceberg. Several other components necessary for e-ID–driven shared services interoperability are required. These components must also take an SOA approach to identity because SOA is currently the underlying infrastructure.

SAP continues to innovate and improve their Core Applications

Taking our query forward to Mathew Thomas, Vice President - Strategic Industries, SAP India and asking him about the Company’s offerings when it comes to e-governance product based solutions at various levels of Government organizations, he said, “SAP solution portfolio and strategy is shaped by the 5 markets that we address :

1.    Cloud

2.    Mobility

3.    Applications

4.    Analytics

5.    Database & Technology

Designed to help all levels of government maximize public value, SAP for Public Sector solutions enable governments to optimize limited resources in public administration while delivering responsive citizen services. From Information management to decision support systems, from service oriented architecture to Mobility, from on-Demand solutions to High Performance Computing- our solutions support processes across a wide range of government functions, from accounting and procurement to case management and social services”.

Moving further and informing about SAP’s solutions that help Government achieve better performance, he stated, “SAP solutions help governments leverage their finite time, money, and personnel resources to fulfill mandated program and service requirements on a timely basis. Where two or more agencies share responsibility for a common outcome, these solutions can integrate information, processes, and technology to support the active collaboration that delivers financial returns, as well as social and political results, to internal and external government stakeholders”.

He also said, “SAP is addressing Homeland security & Defense, Social & Rural, Tax & Revenue, Budgeting & Accounting, Urban Management, Public works, Utilities, Education & Health and Public Sector enterprises”.

Lastly, when we asked about the NextGen Technologies in e-governance, he stated, “From essentially a consumption perspective, the urban – rural divide that exists today in Egovernance service delivery can be bridged effectively by combining the technologies enabled by the cloud and mobility. Hence Mobile Governance and Cloud are two technologies that have an immense power in ensuring inclusive services delivery. But before that can happen, the government needs to get its priorities right with respect to issues like data protection and privacy, electronic payments and authentication of beneficiaries. While bold steps are being taken it will be sometime before these technologies can be fully deployed in India. Another area that is rapidly gaining ground is the area of Real Time Situation Awareness. This requires massive number crunching capabilities, use-case specific algorithms and context-sensitive command & control dashboards. These technologies will find high impact adoption in areas like Emergency & Disaster Management, Pandemic Alerts, Fraud and Crime detection and Fiscal management besides its obvious use in supply chain planning, demand forecasting, customer churn analysis etc for industries. Similarly, the Government current level of dalliance with Social Engineering is likely to intensify and proliferate. These technologies lend itself to big-data analytics is profiling, sentiment analysis etc”.

He further informed that over the years and even now the stress has been on process automation and hence we have created massive systems of record that capture transactional data. However, systems of engagement around Governance Insight and Analytics have not developed to the same extent. We see investments being made by the Indian Government in building modern, real-time decision support systems.Also the federal structure of the government has meant that little or no standardization has taken place with respect to either process or data standards. Hence there is a huge issue with regards to citizen data inconsistency and redundancy.

In spite of and in addition to Aadhar, today citizen data exists in a multitude of data sources. Hence having a 360 degree view of the citizen has become difficult unless a Citizen data registry is created which would involve necessary data quality checks, data dedupe and responsive ETL technologies. This concept is still very nascent in its adoption but we believe this will become the norm once issues such as Food Security are addressed seriously.

Hence SAP’s strategy in continuing to innovate and improve our Core Applications – of nurturing our growth vectors like Big-data, Mobility and Cloud ; all are in perfect congruence with the emerging technology roadmap in the area of Public services.

Dassault Systèmes’ 3D applications, Digital Mock-up and PLM business are being used in various Government organizations

Commenting on Company’s offerings when it comes to e-governance product based solutions at various levels of Government organizations, Ajay Verma, Vice President Value Solutions, Dassault Systemes India, said, “Dassault Systèmes’ leading 3D applications, Digital Mock-up and PLM business are being used in various Government organizations for a wide variety of applications pertaining to the above domains. This community is now adopting our latest innovation, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to deliver 'experiences' to their customers i.e. us as citizens. DS Technology solutions help all stake holders as they may pertain to different spheres  stay connected throughout the entire process of either management, Infrastructure buildup etc. regardless of location, while ensuring process consistency and compliance”.

“We are working with various government organizations, departments, PSU’s, autonomous bodies, research institutes across various domains in the government to help them leverage the 3DExperience platform and deliver a superior class of products and services”, he added.

Lastly on being questioned about the nextGen technologies in e-governance, he answered, “The examples given above are clear indicators of how technology can help bring a different class of service level to all of us as citizens. As more data is created with various government initiatives, data analytics can provide an insight across disparate data sets. For example tracking government ID’s as a way of driving the goal of financial inclusion, does the same recipient show up in both BPL and no BPL government service usage, in the new cash to citizen model how do we ensure traceability and consistency. Future governments would leverage technology in these and many more areas”.

Infosys through its services aims to help the government entities perform more proficiently

We also interacted with CN Raghupathi, Head India Business Unit at Infosys and asked him about the Government Organizations that Infosys is catering to with their solutions and regarding this, he quoted, “Infosys has recently won an IT outsourcing and consulting deal with India Post and another deal from the Income Tax Department for its electronic TDS division. In addition the company entered into a multi-year agreement for Business Transformation project with Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) and is also works with other government departments”.

Answering our next query, wherein we asked him that which all solutions from Infosys help Government achieve better performance, he answered, “Infosys through its services aims to help the government entities perform more proficiently and help bring world class facilities to the door steps of a common man in India. With an aim to fulfill this goal, Infosys has implemented its Finacle and McCamish platforms across 155,000 post offices in India. We also work with the Income tax department to process more than 1.5 crore applications ever year.We are working with Karnataka Government to reduce distribution losses. In addition, Infosys has also implemented transformational solutions across various government projects in order to increase efficiency and productivity”.     

Lastly mentioning about the NextGen Technologies in e-governance that will be shaping up the future of Govt. organizations, he mentioned that the world is shrinking virtually and technology is bringing it even more closer, with this present scenario e-governance is going to be the next big thing among government organizations. The technologies that are going to affect e-governance significantly in the coming years are:


    Augmented reality

    Cloud computing

    Next generation search

    Agile development

    Social technology

    Mobile internet


On a concluding note, it can be easily concluded that all the vendors are doing their best and offering their best solution for the welfare of our Government and are leaving no stone unturned to make this concept of e-Governance a
