  • Next Generation e-Government:
    The Cloud and Beyond
    Oleg Petrov, Program Coordinator, e-Development Thematic Group, Global ICT Department, The World Bank
    E-Government Summit
    Hong Kong, 8 October 2010
  • Outline
    The E-Gov Story: from Computerization to e-Transformation
    Key Aspects of e-Gov 2.0
    Latest Technology Trends Shaping the Future
    Focus on G-Cloud
    World Bank’s Support for e-Government
  • E-Government Vision: Leveraging ICT to Transform Service Delivery
    Some good news:
    India: E-services reduced bribe-payments
    Source: Survey of e-government projects in India, IC4D 2009
    Ghana: Customs clearances went from 2 -3 weeks to 1-2 days with a 50% increase in revenue after applying IT systems.
    Korea: Investment of $80 million in e-procurement generated $2.7 billion in annual savings
  • But: ICT investments are also risky
    Partial Failures 50%
    Successes 15%
    Total Failures 35%
    e-Government initiatives in
    Developing Countries
    Guardian headline: “£2bn cost of government’s IT blunders”
    The Economist : “Although hopes have been high and the investment has been huge, so far the results have mostly been disappointing…”
    Gartner Research :“On an average, $8 out of every $10 spent in IT is “dead money” – not contributing directly to business change and growth”.
    Risks are high, though a lot learnt since the early days
    Key lesson: Smarter IT spending needed
    Richard Heeks. 2003. “Most e-Government-for-Development Projects Fail: How Can Risks be Reduced?”. IDPM i-Government Working Paper no. 14
  • Old Model: e-Government 1.0 High Costs – Limited Results
    E-Gov 1.0 = Informatization:
    Computerizing the “Brick and Mortar” (industrial age) government
    Ignoring or reinforcing organizational silos
    Limited back-end integration and sharing of data, infrastructure and services
    Limited process re-engineering that does not leverage the full power of ICT
    Limited change management
    Limited participation of the citizens and private sector
    • Project to develop Budget and Public Expenditure Management System in a West African country
    • Funded by the World Bank, implemented by the Government -- US$30 million
    • Incorporated 32 Ministries in 10 Regions and across 140 Districts
    • However, not integrated with the rest of the government and now being scrapped
    • A new IFMIS system is now being implemented at a cost of US$54 million.
    Recent Example from Africa: Silos Don’t Work
  • We can implement post-facto interoperability, but we get a “Spaghetti of interdependencies” among Government applications. Difficult to maintain.
  • Move to a situation in which technology allows you to share services and infrastructure
  • Sharing Services and Infrastructure
    Shared e-Gov Services:Think Modular
  • Service-Oriented Architecture
    Services: Before
    Services: After
  • New Model: e-Government 2.0Maximizing Transformational Impact of ICT
    E-Gov 2.0 = eTransformation– next-generation model of ICT-enabled govt transformation into open, participatory, citizen-driven and highly integrated government:
    Breaking down organizational silos, creating horizontal, whole-of-govt structures, standards, communities and practice groups
    Comprehensive back-end integration and sharing corporate services and systems
    Comprehensive process re-engineering that leverages fully the power of ICT (rethinking government in the information age)
    Comprehensive change management (“the human factor”)
    Active participation (co-creation) of the citizens in policy and decision-making and service design and delivery (Open Government paradigm)
    Government letting go and empowering innovation and public-private partnerships (Government as a Platform paradigm)
  • Key Aspects of e-Gov 2.0
    Citizen-centric and driven approach (focus on the demand side, using Web 2.0, open data): USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada
    Sharing infrastructure and services, including via Cloud Computing: UK, US, Singapore, Australia, Canada, Korea, Japan, Denmark, New Zealand
    Whole-of-government perspective: Singapore, US, UK, Australia, Canada
    Maximum openness, transparency, and accountability: US, UK, Canada
    Public-private partnerships: US, India, Ghana, Czech Republic, Estonia
    e-Inclusion-for-all & Multi-channel delivery of services, especially via mobile phones, also call centers, single window centers and web portals: Canada, Brazil, Australia, Korea, UK, Singapore, India
    Change management and e-leadership from the very top of Government with the growing role of CIOs as key enablers and empowering civil servants to act as change agents: US, UK, Australia, Singapore, Canada, Estonia, Moldova, Sri Lanka, Rwanda, Korea
    Process re-engineering/admin reform before automation: UK, USA, Canada, Singapore, Estonia
    Secure identification: Belgium, Portugal, Estonia, Malaysia, Pakistan

  • What is cloud computing?Different definitions in scope and content
  • Cloud computing delivery models
    Software as a Service (SaaS)
    The capability provided to the consumer is the use of the provider’s applications running on a cloud infrastructure and accessible from various client devices through a thin-client interface such as a web browser
    Platform as a Service (PaaS)
    The capability provided to the consumer is deployment onto the cloud infrastructure consumer-created applications using programming languages and tools supported by the provider
    Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
    The capability provided to the consumer is the provision of processing, storage, networks, and other fundamental computing resources where the consumer is able to deploy and run arbitrary software, which can include operating systems and applications
  • NIST: Cloud Computing Deployment Models
    Private cloud
    The cloud infrastructure is operated solely for an organization
    Community cloud
    The cloud infrastructure is shared by several organizations and supports a specific community that has shared concerns
    Hybrid cloud
    The cloud infrastructure is a composition of two or more clouds (private, community, or public) that remain unique entities but are bound together by standardized or proprietary technology that enables data and application portability
    Public cloud
    The cloud infrastructure is made available to the general public or a large industry group

  • Government expenditure on ICT is large and growing
    According to Gartner:
    • worldwide central government IT spending is to grow by 4 per cent in 2010 tomore than $244bn
    • total local government worldwide ICT spend will grow to more than $179bn
    • combined, the ICT spend is expected to exceed $423bn

  • Key Benefits of G-Clouds
  • Country Examples:USA
    In September 2009, the Federal Government’s Cloud Computing Initiative was announced, GSA serving as a provisioning hub for Government Cloud was established as a “cloud computing storefront”
    About a half of US governmental agencies use some cloud computing technologies
    By 2014, over $1 billion of the federal IT budget would be devoted to cloud computing
    By moving to a cloud service, GSA now pays an annual total of $650,000 for and all associated costs, a costs savings of $1.7 million, or 72 percent
    Defense Information System Agency estimates about $15 million in cost savings
    The migration to the Cloud could save Washington D.C. City Government 48% on e-mail expenditures and the City of Los Angeles 23.6 %
  • Country Examples: UK’s G-Cloud
    • The G-Cloud program is a key part of the new Public Sector ICT Strategy
    • All G-Cloud services will be delivered to the future ‘Common Desktop’ which will include both desk based and mobile devices
    • The G-Cloud will be a combination of the private cloud and trusted elements of public clouds
    - The G-Cloud Program is expected to deliver the following savings:
    £300 million per annum (by 2015) by consolidating data centres in use across the Public Sector against estimated current spend in the order of £5bn; and
    £500 million per annum (by 2020) against an estimated current spend in the order of £5bn, through faster and more effective procurement of infrastructure and services through the Applications Store for Government (ASG).
  • Country Examples: Japan
    Kasumigaseki Cloud
    • The KC is part of Digital Japan Creation Project
    • Developing the KC in stages by 2015
    • The Ministry of Interior and Communication is responsible
    • The KC will enable various ministries to collaborate, integrate and consolidate hardware and create platforms for shared functions
    • Existing back office systems, such as payroll, accounting, and personnel management, will be virtualized and hosted in the private cloud. Some front office systems, such as electronic procurement, will be virtualized to a public cloud
    - The KC will use green technology to help cut costs. The data centers will be built in cold regions, will use wind and solar power, will run on DC power, and may be placed underground where temperatures are stable
  • Country Examples: South Korea
    - Korea’s Communications Commission has announced commitment of over $500 million to the development of Korean cloud computing facilities
    • In June, the Ministry of Knowledge Economy announced plans to develop technology linking mobile and cloud computing, at a cost of 274.5 billion Won ($230.7 million)
    • South Korea is moving 17 critical applications to the Government Cloud
    • The Government’s aim is to stimulate the development of the Korean cloud computing market
    • A further benefit is that government agencies can use the onshore cloud capabilities to reduce in-house ICT costs – overcoming the reluctance of agencies to use offshore clouds
    • The goal is reportedly to capture 10 per cent of the global cloud services market by 2014 and to halve the cost of operating the public sector’s ICT infrastructure
  • Country Examples: Australia
    • The Australian Bureau of Statistics implemented its own private cloud with the potential to host the 2016 eCensus thus avoiding a $9 million outsourcing contract
    • During its transformation the ABS went from more than 300 physical servers to 70 which are now hosting around 1500 virtual machines
    • The ABS had 30 people managing server infrastructure before implementing private cloud and today they have seven
  • Country Examples: SAR Hong Kong
    • the Government cloud strategy is still under preparation
    • in the initial phase to use some kind of private cloud to support government capabilities
    • Office of Government Chief Information Officer as potential cloud supplier to government departments
    • Hong Kong government will use cloud computing to:
    • facilitate internal collaboration
    • facilitate communication within the government, government-citizen and government-businesses
    • facilitate information management - record keeping for instance
    • human resource management services
  • Moldova Cloud: First World Bank G-Cloud Project
    • M-Cloud first WB Government Cloud project
    • Internal (private/community) government cloud, defined as a multitenant, dynamically provisioned and optimized infrastructure, with some public cloud elements
    • Will initially be a Mini-cloud, and will incorporate a Mobile applications platform
    • Will target three categories
    i) government ministries, SOEs, departments and agencies
    (ii) SME engaged in the development and delivery of IT services
    (iii) universities for research and development
