In the last few years a multitude of initiatives have been introduced by Central Ministries and State Governments to usher in an era of e-Governance in India. Relentless efforts are now being made at varied levels to boost the delivery of public services and enhance public private interface experience.
E-Governance in India is progressively evolving towards the current need of total digitisation with the move towards computerization of Government Departments and adoption of initiatives that encapsulate the finer points of Governance, like citizen centricity, service positioning and pellucidity. Due cognizance has to be made of the fact that to speed up e-Governance implementation across the various arms of Government at National, State, and Local levels, a programme approach needs to be adopted, guided by a meticulously planned vision and strategy. Most importantly these moves need to be capable of enabling cost saving through sharing of core and support infrastructure, enabling interoperability through standards, and of presenting a seamless view of Government systems and processes.
According to Datacentre Dynamics Asia Census 2012, the Government sectors have witnessed decline in total amount of white space probably attributable to consolidation and re-allocation of space. Also that overall, the proportion of outsourced infrastructure has risen from 17.9% to 19.4% this year and a strong growth in the rate since 2011 is especially marked in the government sector.
It is time to delve deeper into the current challenges and functional loopholes such as upgrading networks, systems and management, moving ahead of efficient hosting to distribution and monitoring systems. Furthermore, to look for tangible solutions and incentives to forge stronger public private partnerships and learn from the well-oiled corporate DCIM models, in order to scale government run/ managed datacentres up to match global standards.
Taking cognizance of the fact that India’s national government now, wants to migrate its IT to a cloud-based infrastructure, using a national cloud-based network that will connect all state data centres. And if the migration is at the scale it presumes, India could become one of the first countries to move to such a wide-scale dependency on the technology. This trend categorically denotes a strong indicator of the country’s robust growth and increasing perception as an attractive market by multinationals, both fertile grounds to bring in the long needed transition.
Looking at the opportunities at hand, we at DCD look forward to taking a leap to the next level of engagement by bringing the Focus on Datacenter Seminar to Delhi coming September. The fact that while there are many obstacles in our path, growth remains strong, we attempt at engaging the best mix of key public and private players and to uncover the drivers and inhibitors that will shape our market in the near and long term future.

Registered attendees of an event are able to access the majority of the material presented after an event. We are introducing a new system - PresentationPLAYBACK - which enables you to listen to a full sound recording of the session along with the PowerPoint and any associated movies in a single file.
You will therefore need to have a recent version of Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer in order to view them (Google Chrome Users need not worry about this, as it's pre-built-in). Although we now endeavour to record all presentations in this format, occasionally - for technical reasons beyond our control - it is not possible to fully capture all sessions; in such cases you will only be able to view a PDF.
To access PresentationPLAYBACK you must be signed into your account. Click on the MyDCD button on the top navigation panel which will take you to your personal homepage - on the right hand column you will find an area headed 'My Presentations'. Here are listed the conferences you have access to (see access and restrictions below). The links will take you to the programme page of that conference, and by clicking on a session you will be taken to the individual conference asset where you will find the feature. Alternatively you can navigate to the conference site you wish and acess the file directly from there - remember you must be signed in.
DatacenterDynamics Conference sessions with this feature available will display the PresentationPLAYBACK icon:
The player is simple to use. Click on the play button for automatic playback, or advance through the slides.
The conference presentations you can view depend on your membership level. Silver members only have access to those from the events they have actually attended, whilst Gold members have access to presentation materials from all our events around the world.
