KOMINFO invites government agencies to build a Government Integrated Data Centre

KOMINFO invites government agencies to build a Government Integrated Data Centre

An announcement made by the Ministry
of Communications and Informatics
(KOMINFO) highlighted the need for all ministries and
agencies to build a Government Integrated Data Centre (GIDC) for Indonesia to
be a Smart nation.

Directorate
General of Informatics Applications Ministry of Communications and Informatics
has prepared several schemes of e-government infrastructure implementation in
Indonesia.

Representing
the Director General of Aptika, Andi Hasdullah, the Head of Communications,
Statistics and Communications of South Sulawesi Province, stated that the key spirit
towards being a Smart Nation is having the extraordinary power to make this
nation as one big nation. 

He said this during the Infrastructure e-Government
National workshop at the Hotel Four Points Sheraton, Makassar, on Thursday, 24
May 2018.

"The
Ministry of Communications and Informatics invites government IT officials to discuss
strategic national policy developments through the administration of an electronic-based
government," he said. 

Provincial,
district and city government agencies are encouraged by the KOMINFO to build a GIDC scheme to achieve being a Smart
nation.

Cooperation
for all is important in order for the eGovernment infrastructure to be
successful in achieving its objectives of effectiveness and efficiency.

"I
believe that coming from different sectors, we all have a role and a contribution
in creating an electronic-based government. Therefore, each party should play
its strategic role for the consolidation of eGovernment Indonesia," he
said. 

The
Government does not object to government institutions having their own Data
Centres. However, implementing an integrated eGovernment infrastructure with
the use of cloud computing will be more efficient,  according to the Head of Technology and
Infrastructure Division of e-Government Technology, Sub Directorate of
e-Government Directorate General of Aptika, Bambang Dwi Anggono.

"What
is being done in the business world should be adopted by the government of
Indonesia. We must start moving away from being silos and instead be committed
founders of the nation as the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia
(NKRI),” he said.

The KOMINFO
plans to streamline the policy of issuing the Certificate of Comprehension on
Electronic Systems. This is in accordance with the mandate of the ITE and the
PP Regulations on the Implementation of the Electronic Transaction System. It
also includes the certificate of eligibility for the Data Centre. 

Moreover, the
Ministry of Communications and Informatics will accelerate the issuance of
regulations for the Data Centre. 

"We
have identified that the total number of Data Centres or server rooms of 615
Ministries, Institutions and Local Governments is still around 4,000 to 5,000
units. This is because the local administrations still manage server rooms for
their respective sectors," he explained. 

Committee
Chairman Jusuf A. Simatupang stated that the objective of the workshop was to
have a common understanding and commitment, from all,
to consolidate eGovernment infrastructure on a national scale.

"In turn,
it can serve as a basis for future formulation of national policies,
particularly in the infrastructure sub-sector of eGovernment," he added.

Mr Jusuf Simatupang explained that an agreement on the
design and the development of the consolidated GIDC is the expected outcome of
the discussions done during the workshop. 

Data
collection was also carried out during the workshop, which involved policy
makers, Information Technology managers from government agencies as well as experts
in Information and Communication Technology infrastructures and eGovernment.

The
workshop was attended by 200 participants. 80 of which were technical workshop
participants while 120 were local government infrastructure workshop
participants.
