SaaS Solution Developer Mind Supports the Idea of E-Government

16 May On May 16 the largest Russian SaaS solution developer Mind participated in the 2012 Russian E-Government Forum, which took place as part of the international Sviaz-Expocomm Exhibition.

Director of the Mind Partner Sales Development Dmitry Sklyarov made a presentation on the Saas Web Conferencing – Experience with State Agencies. Dmitry talked about arranging video conferences, webcasts, and e-receptions, all of which are new tools for interaction with government agencies and promote government transparency and effective communication both inside the government and between the officials and the public.

The goal of the 2012 Russian E-Government Forum was to provide information on the latest developments on the government services portal and the System for Interagency Electronic Interaction (SIEI) at the federal and local levels. The representatives of the Government Commission for Integrating Information Technologies in the Work of the Government and Local Administrations, of the Ministry of Communications and Mass Media of the Russian Federation, and of the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation, as well as over 200 representatives of federal and regional state agencies and IT companies creating e-government and implementing electronic state services in Russia participated in the discussions.

At present the state agencies are aiming toward transparency, and video conferencing is an innovative and, most importantly, effective solution for the task. Mind has arranged live webcasts of state events a number of times.

“We know by experience the interest that people take in objective coverage of forums, party congresses, etc. At the same time, we suggest arranging online reception rooms for officials within the framework of e-government; that way people can resolve their problems quickly and efficiently without wasting their time waiting in lines and can receive expert advice directly on the website of the state agencies,” commented Dmitry Sklyarov.
