With the initiative to build and implement the Andhra Pradesh State Enterprise Architecture (APSEA) in the state, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu is pushing for a quantum leap in e-governance. On Monday, in the city, a memorandum of understanding was reached the state's information technology, electronics and communications department with the IT major Wipro to unveil it in two years.
The state's Information Technology Secretary B Sreedhar said that APSEA aims to be a lever for transformational change in the way government services are conceived, designed, delivered and consumed. To use e-governance as a tool to provide integrated services to the citizens through a free flow of information is the vision of the state of Andhra Pradesh and APSEA is an essential first step to achieve the vision of the state.
By changing from departmental stovepipes to a citizen-centered approach to government services achieved through transformation of the entire operations, APSEA intends to prepare the state government future. Collaborative work and information needs to be shared between the departments to form a digital network of departments organized around citizen services and their outcomes. Nevertheless, APSEA will take up the services progressively based on their priority.
Such a holistic architectural approach to e-governance has already been embraced by several countries including Singapore, South Korea, the United States, Norway, Estonia, Denmark, New Zealand and Australia.
