With the rising demand for online services, government agencies have been rapidly deploying new applications across citizen services, e-governance and related services to embrace online engagement with participants. With an aim to transform citizens’ lives, all levels of government bodies of local, state and federal nature are turning to technology. From deploying the concept of IoT-enabled smart cities to automation, government agencies are prepared to enter the next phase of innovation and implement sophisticated technologies to drive wide-scale automation and efficiency. This has led to several digital transformation projects that span portal, commerce, middleware technologies. Cnetric has been involved in a number of such Government projects across the globe.
Edtech has been a buzzword for quite some time and has picked up enormous momentum recently. From interactive whiteboards, front-facing projectors, customized learning experiences, voice-to-text and text-to-voice transcription technologies to Internet of Things the shift is inevitable. It broadens the scope for continuous experimentation and feedback to improve. It also enables the availability of massive volumes of resources through media integration, live annotation and gamification and more that improve learning outcomes. Cnetric can help you harness digital innovation for edtech.
From smart meters, street lights, traffic cameras, data and information, built-in sensors in cars, connected cities to IoT are the decade’s highlights. Automation aids in streamlining the functions of the government departments starting from efficient budgeting, automated call centers, to AI-enabled law enforcement. Cyber security is at the top of the agenda for the government on account of enhanced amount of sensitive information stored virtually increasing vulnerability. Agencies are employing AI, advanced analytics and machine learning for intrusion detection and prevention and encrypted information sharing.
Enterprise-oriented apps eliminate manual labor and automate paperwork and other repetitive tasks. Citizen-oriented apps such as apps for transportation, public libraries, parks and recreation, etc. revitalize the life of citizens to make it faster and cost-efficient. These days data has become the soul of all organizations and government organizations are no exception to that rule. With the use of latest technologies, government bodies are able to gather massive quantities of data across all sectors such as housing, transportation, healthcare, etc. to analyze the causes of events impacting citizen’s lives through sophisticated analytics. Digital government platforms provide useful information at citizens’ fingertips eliminating the need to wait in queues. This frees up agencies’ manpower as well as improves citizens’ satisfaction with online services and programs.
Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality are providing students with realistic learning experiences where they can choose their learning setting. This allows first-hand experiences of certain undoable events, and other scenarios. Personalization and gamification allow individually tailored programs that make learning faster, engaging and fun. Artificial Intelligence and chatbots are causing stir in the edtech industry, with chatbots and applications that have Natural Language Processing (NLP) solving complex problems with instantaneous feedback and scoring capabilities. Smart campuses operated through IoT, facilitate a highly customizable learning ecosystem through connected devices into a single network.
Cnetric has successfully implemented projects for the HR ministry in India for managing scholarship programs funded by the central government, portals for department for health services and WorkSafe in Australia, and citizen services applications in Singapore. Cnetric has vast experience working with government agencies globally to help the both state and county based agencies in several areas including portal and commerce, cloud transformation, application modernization and middleware.
Having worked with several educational institutions such as NESA in Australia and IIE in United States, Cnetric has garnered expertise in implementing portal and ecommerce applications in the education sector. Cnetric has successfully deployed ecommerce portals on cloud to sell and market curriculum, books and accessories for the Board of Education, as well as built student and participant portals to manage university scholarship programs across the globe. The technology prowess in best of breed tools and technologies enabled Cnetric to deliver these projects successfully in short-timeframes at an economical cost leveraging an onshore and offshore delivery model.
