Civic body to upgrade digital infrastructure

The BBMP will set up an Information Storage Retrieval and Management System.

As part of the administrative reforms, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) will set up an Information Storage Retrieval and Management System. The system will store documents and backup data on various services of the civic body.

BBMP has earmarked Rs 7.50 crore in the budget for upgrading digital infrastructure. According to the proposal prepared by the civic body the digitisation of various departments that provide services, a good digital communication network, and a robust computing platform are important and rather urgent requirements for an organisation like the BBMP, where dependency on IT applications is growing.

“The information from various applications is stored at the data centre which is hosted at the BBMP IPP Centre, Malleswaram. BBMP also has a mini data centre which is located at the head office in NR Square. The storage and backup of this information are critical for BBMP,” states the proposal.

“For a developing Bengaluru, with growth comes a higher level of responsibility towards providing services to the citizens. BBMP must have an advanced data centre to store information,” said an
official from the IT department.  

“Soon, the system will be upgraded in the IPP Centre and the BBMP head office. The E-Office software will be utilised for the faster processing of files in all the offices of the BBMP,” he added.

The officials hope the upgradation of the data centre and E-Office will be implemented in another three to five months.
