It is needless to say that Andhra Pradesh has been the leader in eGovernance. The initiatives undertaken by the Government of Andhra Pradesh to deliver citizen-centric services up to the last mile through eGovernance is unparalleled. The saga of eGovernance in AP started long back with projects like Mee Seva followed by ePanchayat. The symposium primarily envisages the contemplation of thought leaders, visionaries, implementers, industry leaders and partners at the ground level. However, nothing in eGovernance can be effective until a person in a village is serviced with transparency, quickness and efficiency.

Any kind of data, structured or unstructured, generated and stored is meaningful only if it is analyzed. The Big Data stored in Hadoop is just a lake of dead data until some analytics model is applied to it to figure out any behaviour or problem in the system and take action accordingly. This can be beneficial to government for taking various actions and doing pre-planning to tackle any future problem. For using limited resources for the maximum impact, analytics is taken into action. It can be applicable in almost all the fields like healthcare, crime, politics, etc. All of us have limited resources. For example, there are 50 doctors for 20 villages. Analytics can help in deciding where a particular doctor can be sent so that maximum people could be benefitted.

 

BharatNet to be backbone of eGovernance

Andhra Pradesh has always been in the forefront when it comes to eGovernance initiatives. As a citizen needs government services from birth to death certificates, the traditional model of approaching government has a lot of problems. With eGovernance, things get simplified and the progress of the country can be much faster. If we talk about eGovernance, it will call for a lot of investment. So, the moment we think about computerising any activity of the government, we first start thinking how much money is required and from where the money will come. The Government of India has taken up a very huge project known as BharatNet now, in which it would be laying the optical fibre cable network in all the village panchayats in the country.
