Azerbaijan to have “government cloud”
Baku, Azerbaijan, March 8
By Huseyn Valiyev – Trend:
The electronic government (e-government) platform of Azerbaijan is being transferred to “cloud” technologies infrastructure, according to a report of the country’s Cabinet of Ministers.
According to the strategic roadmap for the development of telecommunications and information technologies, work has begun to create “Government Cloud” (G-Cloud).
As part of the project, an assessment of the scope of work and the necessary financial resources for the implementation of the tasks was conducted, meetings were held and a questionnaire was prepared, which is currently being filled by the relevant structures of the country, says the report.
The main goal in introducing the “cloud” technologies is to reduce costs, improve the quality of services for citizens, and ensure information security.
The e-government platform is a key tool supporting work with citizens and enterprises of the public and private sectors. It is designed to reduce the number of documents, requested from citizens due to the fact that various structures will interact with each other electronically.
The e-gov.az portal serves for interaction of state structures.
The access to electronic services on the portal is carried out using an electronic signature, identification data of private entrepreneurs and citizens, verification data (login and password), as well as mobile authentication system that can be obtained in electronic form after registering on the portal.
