Why in News

Recently, Meghalaya Enterprise Architecture Project (MeghEA) was launched.

  • The project aims to improve service delivery and governance for the people using the power of Digital technologies.
  • Enterprise Architecture (EA) is the process by which organizations standardize and organize IT (Information Technology) infrastructure to align with business goals.

Key Points

  • About:
    • The initiative is spread across 6 pillars i.e. Governance, Human Resources, Entrepreneurship, Primary Sector, Infrastructure and Environment, and envision to make Meghalaya a high income state by 2030.
    • The initiative is in line with the vision of Digital India that focuses on transforming India into a digitally empowered society and knowledge economy.
    • With the notification of India Enterprise Architecture (IndEA) in 2018, design and implementation of integrated, nationally portable and scalable digital platforms have gained a new momentum.
  • India Enterprise Architecture (IndEA):
    • IndEA is a framework for developing a holistic architecture treating the Government as a single enterprise or more realistically, as an Enterprise of Enterprises, which are functionally interrelated.
    • It is a structured combination of several Reference Models that, together, enable a boundary-less flow of information across the length and breadth of the government and facilitate the delivery of integrated services to the stakeholders, namely, the citizens, businesses and employees.
      • IndEA framework comprises 8 Reference Models, viz., Business, Application, Data, Technology, Performance, Security, Integration and Architecture Governance.
    • It is a comprehensive and convenient framework for developing Enterprise Architecture to support Information and Communication Technology (ICT) enabled transformation across governments.
    • It is a way to establish Unity in Diversity in the domain of e-Governance.
      • Federated Architectural Pattern is chosen for the IndEA framework for better administrative feasibility, need for decentralization of implementations, on-boarding of legacy/ ongoing efforts of e-Governance and above all, the need for state governments to have the flexibility to build state specific ICT services.
  • Benefits of IndEA:
    • Provide a ONE Government Experience to the citizens and businesses.
    • Enhance the efficiency of delivery of services.
    • Improve the effectiveness of implementation of the developmental and welfare schemes through a holistic performance management.
    • Enhance the productivity of employees and agencies through easy access to information.
    • Bring in flexibility and agility in making changes to the systems to align with the best practices and to leverage the latest technologies.
    • Realize cost-effectiveness through use of shared infrastructure and services.
    • Maintain the right balance between security of data and privacy of personal information.
