Azerbaijan has accelerated the integration of open databases to the “Open Government” portal.
The head of Internal Control and Audit Department at the Azerbaijani Communications and High Technologies Ministry, Tahir Mammadov, announced about this on February 7, Trend said.
Mammadov noted that cooperation and negotiations with the state departments in this direction are carried out on a regular basis and posting of their open databases to the portal is particularly important for the development of the information society.
“The presence of open databases of the state structures will give impetus to the development of the ICT sector, emergence of new electronic services, increase the number of mobile applications and create facilities for electronic interaction between the government agencies and public. That’s why now the main goal is to ensure that government agencies intensify and activate work on the placement of their public databases to the "Open Government” portal,” he said.
Through the portal data.gov.az, citizens and business structures can easily find data bases created by public authorities and use them while developing the individual directional services.
The portal, which was integrated into the E-Government portal, presents a collection of governmental authorities, including data for access to information and additional resources. The state electronic government portal, www.e-gov.az, which combines all the government agencies, was launched in 2012.
In accordance with the existing legislation, the presented open data will be regularly updated and refined.
Currently, the portal provides 25 services of six agencies including Ministries of Communications and High Technologies, Justice, Health, Culture and Tourism as well as the State Customs Committee and Azersu OJSC, which can be transferred to the mobile platform.
The key goal of the “Open Government” portal is to create opportunities to participate in government management through the use of information and creation of their web-based and mobile accessories. In addition, it provides for the creation of opportunities for easy access to open government information, and creation of added value, promotion of innovative ideas, simplification of analysis and research, improvement of transparency in the work of the government, as well as effectiveness and efficiency in the work of public bodies, etc.
ICT is considered to be one of the crucial spheres for the further development of the economy and an integral part of the economic and political reforms which are currently implemented in Azerbaijan.
Azerbaijan, which is a regional leader in the ICT sector, intends to expand its international cooperation to further develop the sector.
The income obtained in the sector in Azerbaijan is projected to hit $9 billion by 2020.
