    Free data and cheap phones not enough, India needs good infrastructure!

    Quick Summary:

    • The past has been a proof that cheap and free are two words often thrown into the mobile sector, but seldom solved an issue.
    • They have to be supplemented with good infrastructure.

    Mobile phone ownership and coverage made a lot of progress as compared to essential factors like sanitation. More Indian households have access to a cell phone, than a toilet. Google’s Android and affordable handset makers have been instrumental in deep penetration of mobile usage in the country.

    US: Will Blockchain-Based Election Systems Make E-Voting Possible?

    Organizers of a contest around such systems especially wanted to ensure they would be able to surmount what is perhaps the highest hurdle facing e-voting: the public’s reluctance to try something new.

    In the wake of the recent election, it is clear that while the rise of electronic voting continues, public skepticism around digital balloting persists. A survey by the Democracy Fund, for example, shows 39 percent of voters were “very” or “somewhat” concerned that an electronic security breach or hack impacted national vote counts in the recent election.

Formed after the bifurcation of Telangana in 2014, the current state has some 13 districts making it the eighth largest state in India in terms of area. Yet, AP was also the first state in independent India, when the country was reorganised on a linguistic basis. It was in 1953, that AP was first carved out of the erstwhile Madras State. Thus, AP, paradoxically, is the youngest and the oldest state in India.

Andhra Pradesh was still recovering from an unsavoury separation with Telangana, along with a large revenue deficit. Despite such challenges, the vision set out by the chief minister and his team was ambitious. Around the same time as the cyclone, Nara Chandrababu Naidu announced his vision for Andhra Pradesh to become one of the three best states in India by 2022 and the best state in terms of inclusive development by 2029. In November 2014, Naidu visited Singapore, where the idea of an investment promotion and monitoring body like the Economic Development Board (EDB) of Singapore was conceived. In addition, to better monitor the recovery process following Hudhud, the chief minister asked his state planning department to put together a real-time dashboard, which would evolve into the Core Dashboard, a one-stop portal for real-time tracking of almost everything that the government does in Andhra Pradesh.

    IN: Kerala: In 2017, Centre must deliver govt services as a right, not make citizens run around, say senior IAS officers

    Kerala has witnessed the growth of the Indian IT industry from a nascent stage to a leading industry and be counted among the biggest in the world; but this has been mostly on the services side.

    Government organisations are looking to leverage the power of technology to significantly transform the way it functions or delivers services to the citizens. But this transformation is also posing challenges related to creating basic infrastructure, providing cyber security and being investor friendly. Mohd Ujaley spoke to key government officials who are at the helm of affairs. They share their tryst with technology in the past and the way forward. Most of them are of the view that time has come to provide citizen centric governance where the citizen does not have to ask for a government service; rather it should be delivered to him as a right. “Though we have made big strides in this direction, it is far from my satisfaction,” says P H Kurian, principal secretary, revenue, Government of Kerala.

    IN: Towards e-Governance

    It can be said that the role of ICT in the public sector has evolved from informatisation to providing smart government.

    But that's rather a staid way of looking at it. The old model (1980 - 2000) led to high costs with limited results, and was merely an attempt to computerise brick and mortar. Major shortcomings were experienced - there was lack of change management techniques and process re-engineering which often led to duplication, creation of silos and sub-par outcomes. In the period thereafter, till about 2014, things were much more wholesome. This model (second-generation) had an ICT-enabled transformation which was more citizen-centric in outlook and integrated in approach. What was essentially lacking in the earlier model - sharing of infrastructure, services, multichannel delivery, change management and process reengineering, etc. - was addressed to some extent.

To be sure, the Internet of Things promises more reliable and easy access to myriad industrial and municipal systems. However, as smart cities start investing in smart meters and other devices that could fall prey to attacks engineered by botnets taking advantage of unsecured IoT devices and other IP-connected electronics and systems, there is arguably a much broader threat vector for government agencies.

    Shared IT services have been around for decades. During the mainframe era, large counties often shared their computing capacity with smaller municipalities. That approach still holds true today, with counties or states sharing data center capacity, such as processing and storage, with smaller jurisdictions. Since 2011, the city and county of El Paso, Texas, has been sharing servers and storage in a single data center. Similarly Ohio’s Computer Center, which is a consolidated computing facility for state agencies, is now providing server capacity to local governments, such as Cuyahoga County, which expects to save $1 million annually in IT costs, thanks to the agreement with the state.

    Since the earliest days of the Internet, most government agencies have eagerly explored how to use technology to better deliver services to citizens, businesses and other public-sector organizations. Early on, observers recognized that these efforts often varied widely in their implementation, and so researchers developed various frameworks to describe the different stages of growth and development of e-government. While each model is different, they all identify the same general progression from the informational, for example websites that make government facts available online, to the interactive, such as two-way communication between government officials and users, to the transactional, like applications that allow users to access government services completely online.

    Estonia’s Innovation Culture: How Did It Happen? – Analysis

    When former Estonian Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas appeared on the The Daily Show with Trevor Noah in March 2016, the main topic of conversation was the country’s “e-Estonia” model. The model, well-known in Estonia, is aimed at creating more efficient processes by moving online many traditional “brick and mortar” activities such as voting. While the e-Estonia model might have seemed at first a novelty, it is now central to understanding modern Estonia. Beginning in the early 1980s, Soviet Estonia became the epicenter for technological advancement and software development in the USSR as well as being at the forefront of education policy. With the Soviet collapse in the early 1990s, Estonia moved quickly to take advantage of its technological prowess, and young politicians such as Mart Laar, who created Europe’s first flat tax, became intellectual leaders in Central and Eastern Europe. Estonia has been for some time a darling of foreign commentators from both the right and left. But recent political events in Estonia have dampened much of that optimism.

If Kazakhstan is to join the top 30 developed countries in the world as set out in the President’s 2050 Strategy, then having high quality public services will be key to achieving this. There are important signs that good things are happening in Kazakhstan in this regard.333472-2

    Consider, for example, the recently released global education report card entitled Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), the longest running, large scale international assessment of mathematics and science education in the world conducted amongst fourth and eighth grade children in 57 countries.
