Speakers at a workshop on ‘Facilitate Digital Government through Government Infrastructure’ today called upon organizations to use reliable and quality cloud services of National Data Center (NDC) to save operational costs and investment for IT infrastructure.
To choose, manage and operate data centre infrastructure for their application for the government organizations is cost-effective and difficult, rather (organizations) should focus on their core business by not investing in IT infrastructure, they said.
Organized by the World Bank-financed Enhancing Digital Government and Economy (EDGE) Project of Bangladesh Computer Council (BCC) at BCC auditorium, the function was addressed, among others by, Executive Director of BCC Ranjit Kumar, EDGE Project Director Nahid Sultana Mallik, Director NDC and Director (Policy, Planning and Strategy) of BCC Md. Abu Sayed.
Deputy Project Director of EDGE Engineer Mohammad Saiful Alam Khan chaired the function while architect (Enterprise and Data Centre) of BCC Hasan Uj Jaman, presented a keynote paper on Facilitate Digital Government through Government Infrastructure.
“The government organizations can use cloud services of NDC as it (NDC) is providing diversified and reliable cloud services for its customers,” said Ranjit Kumar.
He said the use of cloud services from NDC will help government organizations to reduce the cost of operations as well as investment in IT infrastructure.
Nahid Sultana Mallik said in line with the implementation of e-government, the EDGE project has taken the initiative to strengthen National Data Centre.
A shared and coordinated cloud platform is being developed to provide better cloud services, she said adding that cloud-based infrastructure and software platforms are also being established to enhance investment skills and make the existing Bangladesh National Digital Enterprise Architecture (BNDA) befitting to the private sector.
In his keynote paper, Hasan Uj Jaman said NDC is dedicated to providing data centre services seamlessly with greater simplicity and reliability so that organisations can really focus their core business rather than investing their resources into IT infrastructure.
