Data is increasingly at the core of any business or organisation and is fueling new digital transformation initiatives. And as data becomes more distributed, dynamic, and diverse, data availability has never been more essential in an effective and holistic data management strategy.

The importance of data availability and accessibility anytime and anywhere is even more pronounced in the current health crisis. This is especially true for government agencies engaged in serving mission-critical citizen-centric services.

Government agencies are facing new demands from citizens as well as businesses in these unprecedented times. Legacy backup cannot meet these requirements and cannot deliver the availability that is needed to keep the operations running.

Accurate data protection and recovery are essential for successful mission-critical applications. Efficient access to data is essential and is necessary to improve agency collaboration and government productivity.

The government IT environment is no longer solely based on physical servers and workloads. Many projects have migrated to cloud solutions where security and control of data are paramount. 

Intelligent data management strategies

Globally, government agencies are recognising the importance of managing the growing amount of data. 

Cloudbased services are essential tools to deal with these vast amounts of data and building some innovative citizencentric services. 

With the absolute necessity of cloud, multiple variants of cloud environment – such as public cloud, private cloud, and hybrid cloud – have emerged to manage vast streams of data. While traditional on-premises data storage remains, the use of cloud and cloud-based services is non-negotiable. 

Cloud data management remains a big issue with government agencies, as with many enterprises. Taking a smart approach to cloud data management takes a lot of planning. There are a lot of moving pieces that need to happen before having a data strategy. 

Serving mission-critical citizen-centric services

In the current volatile environment, the success of any governmentrun operation is dependent on the strength of its IT infrastructure. With the majority of businesses closed, the government has a mission, to keep serving its citizens in the best possible manner. 

Cloudbased services take prominence as analysis of big data relating to citizens’ movement, disease transmission patterns, and health monitoring could be used to aid prevention measures. 

In these trying circumstances, data protection, data mobility, and data agility are the key factors while ensuring its availability across any application or cloud infrastructure. 

The question is:

    • Are you well equipped to handle disruption or a critical event and yet have access to your data?

    • Is your data available at a moment’s notice and yet secured, compliant, and ready to handle a disaster (unplanned) situation?

    • Are you able to keep your agency’s operations as close to “business as usual” as possible and maintain service continuity?

OpenGov is pleased to invite you to our exclusive and highly timely OpenGovLive!, our virtual Breakfast Insight session aimed at imparting knowledge on effective and efficient cloud data management and how to ensure data availability, accessibility, and protection across any cloud environment.

This session would serve as a great peer-to-peer learning platform to gain insights and practical solutions to go beyond just managing data, but to make it smarter and more self-governing while ensuring its availability across any application or cloud infrastructure. 

We will be discussing:

    • Key challenges surrounding intelligent cloud data management strategies 

    • Implementing a robust disaster recovery and business continuity plan to ensure data availability 

    • Enabling zero downtime and data protection, while maintaining integrity and accessibility 

    • Mitigating risks, enhancing availability, reducing IT complexity, and achieving lower costs 

    • Managing multi-cloud data management and protection strategies 

    • Ensuring that data remains protected, portable, and available, regardless of the cloud technologies and platforms 

    • Reducing costs by enabling more effective and timely data backup and recovery efforts 

    • Decreased cost of data-related outages in terms of lost user productivity and revenue 

    • Minimising the staff time required to manage and support data backup and recovery environments
