Hyderabad, India, 26th June 2022 – Elets Technomedia held its third edition of the ‘India Transformation Summit‘ on June 24-25 in Dehradun, intending to fuel innovation and collaboration in the country’s growth plan.
The two-day summit was organized in association with Uttarakhand IT Department. Pushkar Singh Dhami, Hon’ble Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, graced the summit with his presence as Chief Guest.
Senior policymakers and industry leaders participated in the event to explore opportunities to develop a more collaborative and empowered AatmaNirbhar Bharat. Quixy, the leading no-code platform enabling business users to build enterprise-grade apps without writing any code, participated as the industry partner for the event. Eminent government officials discussed the state of the digital transformation journey and the hurdles that have been encountered in terms of adopting new technology.
Dr. Rajendra Kumar, Additional Secretary, Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeiTY), Government of India, talked about how India has come a long way in its digital transformation journey and the need to continue to exploit the power of digital to reach the one trillion digital economy milestone in the next few years. Furthermore, He highlighted that each government department currently uses 10s applications, sometimes one for each service delivery. Sometimes, these poorly integrated applications lead to department functioning and service delivery inefficiencies.
The same need was emphasized by Dr. Sunil Panwar, Chief Executive Officer, Centre for e-Governance, Government of Karnataka. He talked about how each department has to put the right IT systems in place, including department-specific custom ERPs to manage all their work digitally and work with other departments to compile a comprehensive citizen database to arrive at key parameters like auto eligibility for government schemes, deprivation index, etc. This will allow departments to proactively deliver benefits to the citizens without having them apply for them.
He added that to reach such a level of delivery, governments must work closely with industry partners to leverage the latest technologies like blockchain, low-code no-code, AI/ML, etc.
Dr. Prashant Narnaware, Commissioner of Social Welfare, Government of Maharashtra, talked about how governance is a continuously evolving process, and with new policies and laws coming into effect frequently, departments need flexible IT applications that can quickly accommodate change.
While addressing the audience during the panel discussion, Mr. Guatam Nimmagadda, Founder and CEO of Quixy, revealed how these challenges outlined by the panel members could be easily solved using no-code platforms. He added that government officials busy with their day-to-day duties find it hard to make out time to work on the IT requirements of the sector. However, with the no-code and low-code platforms, this challenge can be overcome as they provide the ability to build apps in the hands of even a non-technical person.
The event was a great success in terms of bringing the policymakers, government sectors and IT together to realise the urgency of Digital Transformation. The exchange of thoughts led to laying out the needs of the Public sector and how tech can help with it. The decoding of challenges and roadblocks brought out the knowledge and further steps to be taken to realise India’s Digital goals.
