IT projects can be the most complicated projects to complete, depending on the requirements. When it comes to the e-Governance Project, the project can get more complex. To reduce the e-Governance Project Lifecycle, system integrators’ take multiple precautions, but there were no feasible solutions until today.
What is e-Governance?
Electronic governance, or e-Government, uses communication and information technology (ICT) to provide government services, share data, run communication procedures, and connect many different systems and services that were previously separate. Though e-governance or government services are made available to people in a fair, organized, and transparent manner, three main groups could be mistreated in governance principles: the government, citizens, and business groups.
The end goal of e-governance is to offer residents a more comprehensive range of public services in a way that is organized and saves money. It also makes the government more accountable by telling the public what it is working on and what policies it is trying to implement.
Different kinds of software solutions can be part of eGovernance Software Solutions. It could be a group of applications or just one. Law Enforcement, Citizen Services, Workforce Management, and Healthtech solutions, are just some of the most popular eGovernment solution suites. Governments can also use some or all of these solutions to make it easier for different agencies to work together.
e-Governance Project Lifecycle
You cannot compare a normal project lifecycle to a government project lifecycle. No matter how well-defined eGovernance projects are, system integrators always run into some trouble. The e-Governance project life cycle usually consists of six phases
Includes several important steps, such as figuring out what needs to be done, coming up with a clear vision and set of goals, putting services and projects in order of importance, considering what others have learned and implemented, figuring out which institutions have the suitable structures and skills to carry out the plan, and figuring out how much money will be needed.
Involves several things, including a thorough evaluation of the business.
Includes several tasks, such as figuring out how the business functions and how identified services will be implemented, making a list of IT solutions and services that can be used to automate new business processes, and laying out the change management, capacity building, and communication needs for project implementation.
Implementation and procurement
Includes a number of tasks, such as making a plan and an approach for putting the plan into action, making a business model, making an RFP, and evaluating and choosing a vendor.
Create and Implement
Includes steps like making application software, setting up IT facilities, testing for third-party affirmation, training, and building capacity. This makes e-government software and IT infrastructure ready to use.
Maintain and Operate
Some of the most important steps: running and maintaining IT systems, and then monitoring and evaluating them.
Why e-Governance Project Get Delayed
As previously mentioned, though the e-Government projects follow a specific life cycle, system integrators often fail to deliver the projects on time. Here are a few reasons why government projects get delayed.
- Complex Requirements
Most government projects come with complicated requirements. Even the government agency may not be fully sure on the requirements, as needs may change frequently depending on the situation. This makes already complicated projects ten times more complicated.
- Use of Biometrics
One vital part of government projects is the use of biometrics. This combines both the matching engine and biometrics scanner. Each project requires different biometrics scanners, which makes the project cycle even longer.
- Learning Curve
For implementing a complete government project, you need mobile applications, Web applications, and even desktop applications for biometrics. You need to code in different languages, creating a huge learning curve. Eventually, the project gets delayed or never reaches the finish line.
eGov Platform Cuts e-Government Project Time
Taking all the issues into consideration, M2SYS has come up with the eGov platform. Focusing on developing and least-developed countries, the eGov platform delivers technological advancement to state agency operations without challenging software development efforts and exposing security problems. eGov is an AI-based platform that doesn’t require any coding. It makes workflow enhancement easier and puts data right in the hands of users through native apps and cloud solutions.
- Ready to Deploy
M2SYS eGov platform comes with hundreds of pre-developed applications that can be tailored to match the needs of any government agency. The customization requires only 1-2 days and the solutions cover most of the government-focused citizen services, as well as law and military agencies.
- Easy to Use
From biometrics to using the existing system to any third-party system, everything is possible with the M2SYS eGov platform. Using an API, data can be fetched into the eGov application without going through complex coding.
- No Coding Required
From customization to the creation of new applications, everything can be done by a simple drag-and-drop tool. No need to learn different programming languages, as the eGov platform offers both web and mobile applications.
M2SYS has relied on 20 years of experience working on large-scale government projects to create the eGov platform. Using this one-of-a-kind platform, you can reduce development time and cost by 90%.
