Romanian president predicts public sector cuts07/05/2010BUCHAREST, Romania -- President TraianBasescu predicted on Thursday (May 6th) that authorities will have to cut public sector wages by 25% and reduce pensions by 15% to prevent substantial tax hikes. The cuts will take effect as of June 1st, according to the local media. The president noted that two fiscal packages are under discussion with the IMF mission that is currently in Romania to negotiate the disbursement of an 850m-euro tranche under the country's 13 billion-euro stand-by arrangement with the Fund. The first option includes a 5% VAT rate hike to 24%, as well as a 4% hike in corporate and personal income tax, from 16% to 20%, Basescu said. This option also envisions public spending cuts. The second focuses only on the continuation of strong expenditure restructuring plans. (Mediafax, Agerpres, HotNews - 06/05/10)There are many challenges when it comes to managing all the records that Public Sector organizations must handle. With EMC Captiva and Microsoft SharePoint, your management is simplified, business processes are automated, and information is handled throughout the entire lifecycle.So if we put it all together, capture + SharePoint, we are able to address to discrete business goals and challenges.Store and retrieve – simple getting paper into digital form so that companies can reduce storage cost, speed access, and manage risk. To do so requires two parts – Capture & SharePoint. One without the other won’t address the problem.Supporting paper based processes – Essentially we are focused at specific business processes where paper plays a critical role. The end goal is to stop paper from slowing your business down. With the benefits being that you can then reduce processing cost (eliminate manual data entry), accelerate the process, manage risk, and improve customer service. By bring capture and SharePoint together you are able to address specific business processes like Accounts Payable (invoices), claims, new account applications, and more.
The object of decommissioning legacy systems that hold important reporting or compliance data is to provide a way to access the data at significantly reduced cost.EMC’s offering uses either EMC xDB, our standalone native XML database or Documentum with XML Store (XML Store is actually xDB) as the data repository.We use XML as a long term archive format as it is open standard, application and system neutral. It also has other key advantages in decommissioning which will be highlighted shortly.CLICK BUILD: The core activity in decommissioning is to extract data from legacy systems and move the data to a central archive repository where it can be managed and accessed.The data is extracted as relational database tables. The data meaning is derived from the application. What we must do is to capture this meaning.CLICK BUILD: We do this by mapping the relational data to a logical business object or record that is represented as an XML file. The key advantage that XML has in this activity is that it enables the simultaneous capture of data and the data context, enabling the data to be held in a file but retain meaning. In this example we are transforming the relational data to purchase order records.CLICK BUILD: Once the data is transformed to XML the complete extraction and transformation process must be validated and audit records produced. This is essential if the decommissioning is to pass business audits such as Sarbannes Oxley.CLICK BUILD: The data is then loaded to the EMC repository where it is indexed for search and retrieval and retention policies applied.CLICK BUILD: Data can be compressed and moved to low cost compliant storage such as EMC Centera to reduce costs.CLICK BUILD: Finally a data access application is generated. This is a web based application that allows users to search across data and generate reports without the need to have application specific knowledge.CLICK BUILD: With this completed, the legacy applications can be safely shut down.

Should governments aspire to be agile ?<br />Do laws change frequently ? Do they effect the way processes work ?<br />Are governments keeping pace with new technologies available to give better service ?<br />Does M&A happen in the public sector ? Did you have departments, units move between ministries ?<br />How is the information flow between ministries works ? And between governments ?<br />How long does it take to deliver a new information system ?<br />How easy is it to support Freedom of information requests ?<br />Does the political landscape change priorities for government projects ?<br />Are compliance and discovery important in the public sector ? <br />
Reduce Carbon Footprint<br />Eliminating the need to move paper around reduces the overall carbon footprint. <br />The average CO2 emissions from cars in Britain according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders 103.89g/mile.<br />For sake of an example an officer of a council in the UK travels approximately 250 miles per month between council premises.<br />An average CO2 emission of 103.89g/mile - Travel could be reduced by 20%.<br /> The above equates to a council employee, on average, producing 0.3 tonnes of CO2 per year. By using Documentum to reduce travelling by just 20% means a reduction in CO2 emissions of 0.062 tonnes.<br />If this were to affect just 500 officers per annum it would reduce the council’s Carbon footprint by 31 tonnes of CO2 per year.<br /> <br />
