Government Cloud System Can Help Thailand Save US$22.98 Million per Year

According to the National Standardisation Council of Thailand (NSC), the GDCC system can save more than 800 million baht (US$ 22.98 million) per year on digital infrastructure. Government Data Centre and Cloud Service (GDCC) development projects can help government agencies reduce their budget burden. In particular, the digital infrastructure budget is reduced by approximately 854 million baht annually (US$ 24.53 million), or 54.56%, compared to the cloud procurement agency from the market itself.

It also promotes the country’s information system as secure following international standards. The Thai government has changed how it collects and processes data on government cloud services (GDCC). As a result, cloud services have increased; in the last year, government agencies used cloud technology at a rate of about 86.35%, 13.32% for Data Analytics technology, and 4.61% for AI technology.

It is critical to focus on providing services to government agencies with a mission to serve the public, government, and private sectors, including creating open data (Opendata). In addition, to maximise the use of Big Data by increasing the potential of data analytics (Data Analytics) through the GDCC Marketplace service.

The top 5 most used agencies are the Ministry of Public Health 24.10%, the Office of the Prime Minister 12.97%, the Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation 12.84%, the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society Society 10.26%, and Ministry of Labor 4.64%.

There are work systems that rely on critical GDCC services. Several healthcare work systems use the cloud, including the National Digital Health Platform system, the Vaccine Institute work system, the Doctor Prompt application, the Thai Safe system of the Department of Health, the Dashboard providing doctors with COVID-19 vaccine services, the Online hospital safety system, and the YFHS Application Assessment for hospital accreditation.

Furthermore, other work systems in Thailand have benefited from the cloud; such as the Smart Bus Terminal transportation and traffic system, the Management system of Superintendents and the performance of patrol officers (POLICE 4.0), the Entry Thailand website that registers tourists, the Thailand Plus application for tourists, and the Thailand Plus application for students. The public sector’s data catalogue development system, data accounting, SKYNET work system, National Water Administration System, and Human Resource Information System (DPIS 6.0).

The National Digital Economy and Society Commission (NorChor) secretary-general, Puchphong Nodthaisong, stated that the Training & Certification section had been completed for 2,571 people. Basic level 1,294 people, advanced level 551 people, and expert level 762 people who attended the training and passed the evaluation will also receive a certificate from the GDCC project.

The National Economic and Social Development Council (NESDB) secretary-general Danucha Pichayanan stated that by 2023, it intends to upgrade GDCC services from infrastructure services. (Infrastructure as a Service IaaS) that provides virtual machines (VMs) to platform services (Platform as a Service: PaaS) and software services (Software as a Service: SaaS) with a wide range of Additional services. Agencies can easily integrate information between platforms using the GDCC Marketplace. Contribute to the advancement of public services by moving toward open government services.

Government Cloud, on the other hand, is the next step in the Digital Government that will cover the use of digital technology. Continuously connecting government, businesses, and people through the central cloud facilitates services in various fields.
