The government of India is in the midst of a huge digital transformation drive. From apps on the cloud to analytics for better service delivery, every department is looking to leverage the power of technology to significantly transform the way it functions or delivers service.
A robust and flexible infrastructure is key to achieve the vision of Digital India, and accordingly the government has been aggressive in trying to create a good network for delivering services. That said, the road to becoming a digital enterprise is not so simple. For the digital strategy to succeed, the necessary IT backend needs to be developed or created for supporting the digital strategy. IT infrastructure has to be secure, always-on, accessible from any place or device, and scalable.
The Government of India recognises the importance of making complex IT process, a simple one and more secure. The recent government push around cloud, data protection and security is testimony to this.
This is key because with massive digitization and cloud adoption, cyber threats are ever increasing with large scale impact to the businesses. Recent reports suggest that every industry is prone to cyber attacks in various forms and shapes. With increasing adoption of multiple cloud providers, it has become humanly impossible to manage work flows and polices systematically.
With the aim to understand the opportunities and challenges emanating from use of cloud technology in government, Express Computer magazine in partnership with industry leader, Juniper Networks is organising the “Express Digital Governance Series,” in New Delhi.
The event will gather key practitioners of ICT, government officials and experts on a single platform to discuss and deliberate about the challenges and best practices to mitigate the impact and drive predictable growth in the age of cloud by supporting the concept of ‘any cloud, any workload and any deployment.
