HPE composable systems enable Government of Andhra Pradesh to improve citizen services

The Government of Andhra Pradesh leveraged HPE Synergy composable infrastructure for sharing data across 200 departments. It streamlined application development and offered fluid resource pools to meet each department's unique workload needs, along with the dynamic scalability of HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity for more efficient internal operations and to deliver more responsive, beneficial citizen services.

Democratically elected governments have a fundamental requirement to provide the citizens whom they represent with meaningful and efficient services. This includes everything from managing land records, to overseeing health and welfare services, furthering educational opportunities, maintaining infrastructure, and improving overall quality of life. The Government of Andhra Pradesh in South India recognizes the great responsibilities it carries, and has responded with a bold new initiative to transform the way government services are managed and delivered.
Dubbed ePragati (which translates as e-progress), the initiative is focused on digitalizing government services with the centerpiece being a citizen-centric portal where people can access services on-demand. Whether requesting a building permit, applying for a scholarship, or submitting a claim for welfare benefits, citizens have one central point of interaction with the full range of government services at their disposal. In addition, the ePragati project will enable internal government departments to securely share data and streamline development of new applications and services with a level of efficiency never before possible.
This is a monumental task given that the Government of Andhra Pradesh has more than 200 departments. Historically, each department had its own infrastructure and applications. Data was in silos, making it nearly impossible to share. Citizens often faced delays and frustration trying to get answers or action. So when a new government came into power in 2013, it looked at consolidating and modernizing.
