  • CO: E-Government: It’s a Natural Extension of Technology

    Smart government. Why not? We have “smart” everything else, and a large number of city, county, and state governments are getting the idea. The concept behind “smart” government is that citizens, businesses, tourists, and other governments can all benefit from information and services that can be delivered via the Internet, as opposed to telephone and face-to-face interaction. While the concept is not new (most city, country, regional and state governments already have websites), the applications are expanding. And well they should. It’s about time that governments become responsive to their constituents.

  • IN: Smartness Inc.

    The powers behind India’s first ‘smart city’ tell us that “land is not an issue”. But with the neoliberalisation of space comes a disturbing transformation of citizenship via data and real estate.

    On a scorching day in May we made our way to the much publicised GIFT (Gujarat International Financial Tech-city). Anticipation was building as we turned the car off the main highway into a byroad dotted with signs announcing the arrival of GIFT. One of the professors from CEPT University, who had secured an invitation to a corporate presentation in GIFT city, remarked how the landscape looked similar to Dubai: clean pavements without rubbish, manicured lawns, mature trees that did not grow natively in the region, and a general absence of people on the roads.

  • Making the transition to digital government

    Ongoing economic uncertainty and a slowdown in government technology investment continue to delay or limit the adoption of digital innovation and radically redesigned service models. The structure of government has remained largely unchanged for more than half a century, even as the needs and expectations of citizens and businesses have outpaced the ability to adequately address them.

    Technological capabilities and social forces have now converged to move government organizations beyond simple online efficiencies. Technology now enables them to optimize, transform or create entirely new services, while renovating back-end systems.

This simple online application can spare a typical person hours of queuing and parking.
