CA India Aligns with e-Governance Projects

by Muntazir Abbas    Jul 17, 2009

CA India, a provider of governance, compliance and management solutions, has partnered with various government agencies and system integrators (SI) to facilitate e-initiatives in the country.

In an interaction with CXOtoday, Amit Chatterjee, MD (India & Saarc), said that the company has undertaken the projects under the government’s private-public partnership model. "CA works directly with the Central government and state governments as well as agencies like NISG, NIC, NICSI, and their consultants," he said.

As the government projects are large in scope and require multi-vendor solution, CA does not bid directly. "We work with system integrators who, in turn, follow the PPP model," Chatterjee said. CA’s SI partners include KPMG, Capgemini, Wipro, TCS, HCL, Sify and 3i Infotech.

CA’s technology includes multiple domain solutions, besides IT Infrastructure fault and performance management that can help in monitoring the services and end-user experience, Chatterjee said.

CA India also offers standards-based service desk solution, and service and project management as well as security solutions.

On the future roadmap, Chatterjee said, "The growth prospects for security business are bright, and especially so in the Indian market. Some industry- specific verticals, such as BFSI, Telecom, IT-ITeS would be aligned to global trends. In fact, various e-governance initiatives in India, too, are addressing internal security threats on the top of their agenda."
