SAP: Building Intelligent Nations
eGov|May 2019

Governments face daunting challenges to protect the community, provide services, and help the economy prosper. Successfully embracing the opportunities from new technologies and implementing the right initiatives will be the foundation of staying competitive and to become more efficient for Governments in future, says Dr Lovneesh Chanana, Vice President - Digital Government (Asia Pacific and Japan), SAP, in an interview with Elets News Network (ENN).

How much has the Government incorporated technologies like AI, IoT, Blockchain, Machine Learning etc. According to you, is the demand vs supply requirement in the governance sector met? If not, what more must be done? How is SAP contributing towards it?

India has taken great strides in incorporating emerging technologies and is progressing rapidly from “Digital India” to “Digitally Intelligent India”. It is interesting to note that both ‘cyber physical systems’ and Artificial Intelligence have been given an impetus by the Government for implementation. There is constant progress towards ensuring readiness for the deployment of these technologies for the digital transformation of enterprises and Governments

The nature of requirements in the field of emerging technologies is highly dynamic and requires a collaborative approach among multiple stakeholders. It involves the participation of stakeholders from policy planning, industry, academia, legal and research. As an example, with drones becoming a reality, the domains of cyber security, physical safety, disaster management, aviation and public security would need to come together to ensure that there is a unified approach to policy as well as commercial arrangements.

As SAP, we stand committed to support digital initiatives and have been contributing to the same through our innovative technology solutions. Initiatives such as Code Unnatiand Bharat ERP have been conceived with aim of supporting digital skills building and promotion of tech-entrepreneurship.

REVINYLIZATION

Blood, Sweat & Tears began as Al Kooper’s dream of a rock band with horns. By the time he realized the concept—on the band’s 1968 debut, Child Is Father to the Man—it had become much more: an engaging hybrid of New York soul, Greenwich Village folk, and innovative jazz arrangements. With producer John Simon at the helm, Child was a virtual definition of the possibilities inherent in the heady musical experimentation of the late 1960s. Kooper’s writing and arranging for that record (including the monumental “I’ll Love You More Than You’ll Ever Know,” later a hit for Donny Hathaway) is one of the high points of his storied career. The record was justifiably praised as the conceptual breakthrough it was, and work had already begun on a follow-up when the band decided it needed a lead singer with more polish. Kooper left the group along with a couple of other key members.
