DoT to dial DeiTY to prepare cloud roadmap for government – Economic Times

Posted on Jul 30, 2014 in Enterprise Cloud

KOLKATA: The telecom department will shortly dial the Department of Electronics & Information Technology (DeiTY), and not the sector regulator, to formulate a cloud services deployment roadmap for all government organisations.The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) had initially mandated the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) to send recommendations for migrating computing and data storage functions of government organisations to the cloud platform, but is now likely to approach DeiTY, according to an internal DoT note seen by ET. The electronics and IT department is already involved in running cloud services applications with the Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat and Tamil Nadu governments.The move comes at a time when companies are swiftly migrating core enterprise applications, sales & distribution, financial accounting functions and CRM systems to the cloud platform, by renting server space instead of using their own to unlock efficiencies in processing and data storage, and in turn, reduce costs."All government departments are being encouraged to adopt the cloud platform for their e-governance projects initially as part of its MeghRaj, or GI Cloud, initiative," a senior DeiTY official said. The objective, he said, is to step up IT adoption in government and enable it to partner with private technology players to develop India as a global hub for delivering cloud solutions.DeiTY is also developing a national data centre that will be a repository of e-governance apps.DeiTY's endeavour to migrate the functions to the cloud platform is also aimed at leveraging cloud computing to deliver affordable e-services, accessed over the Internet
