Cloud-based Software Offers Government Services to Bermuda Citizens

Lagan Software Connects Government and Citizens to Communicate Online

Bermuda, famed for its 220 days of sunshine per annum, is welcoming the arrival of the cloud. Lagan, the global leader in government to citizen (G2C) technology, today announces it has been awarded the contract to implement a pilot program utilizing cloud-based enterprise case management software for the Government of Bermuda. The program will go live in the summer.

Announcing the trial, David Atwood, Director E-Government, Bermuda, said, "'At Your Service Bermuda' is the motto of our Civil Service. We believe that the Lagan cloud solution is a pragmatic way for us to achieve some of the benefits we have observed in government organizations on both sides of the Atlantic implementing 311 type solutions."

Bermuda will be Lagan's first government deployment for a small island state of cloud-computing software. The contract will be Lagan's second implementation at the national government level. Lagan currently serves nearly 200 governments at local, regional, state and national levels, primarily in the UK and North America, providing a range of G2C technology solutions--on-site, cloud-based, and mobile.

The initial implementation will focus on queries (both phone and web) to the Transport Control Department, responsible for both driving and vehicle licenses. The eventual intention is to case manage requests from Bermudian citizens for a wide range of government services across multiple government ministries.

David Moody, CTO of Lagan, said, "We are delighted to have won this important pilot contract to support the Government of Bermuda in delivering services to citizens. This is the first implementation of cloud-based enterprise case management that we have executed at the national level and it puts the Government of Bermuda at the forefront of G2C innovation globally."

Lagan OnDemand is configured for rapid implementation--potentially within weeks. New modules and licenses can be added. Periodic upgrades can be handled efficiently in the cloud, with enhancements based on user group feedback from Lagan's network of nearly 200 government clients worldwide.

Martin Walsh, Customer Insight Manager, Ministry of Energy, Telecommunications & E-Commerce, said, "Our research identified Lagan as a clear leader in the provision of Customer Relationship Management systems for Government Contact Centres serving populations of our size. Site visits to Hampton, Virginia; Argyll & Bute in Scotland; and three locations in England confirmed Lagan's excellent relationship with their clients. This combined with the availability of their new OnDemand "cloud-based solution" that negated the need to initially purchase any hardware or software, established Lagan as clearly the best choice for our pilot."

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
