SAP Labs India has partnered with the National e-Governance Division (NeGD) under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) to improve the country’s digital capabilities. The new SAP Centre for Digital Government (SCDG) was also inaugurated by Abhishek Singh, President and CEO, National e-Governance Division (NeGD), MeitY and Sindhu Gangadharan, SVP and MD, SAP Labs India. This new centre is expected to work towards capacity building, product management, and implementation of projects and initiatives taken by different ministries and departments across state and central government levels.

“At SCDG, our technology experts will directly engage with public service professionals to provide strategic mentorship and will conduct training programs, workshops/roundtables, and innovation showcases. SAP is committed to driving the innovation agenda in India, and the latest initiative further reinforces our efforts towards enabling digital transformation and journey towards sustainable growth”, says Sindhu Gangadharan.

The two institutions also signed an MoU which underlines three broad pillars of activities—innovations in technology application for government service delivery, capacity building and knowledge sharing, and thought leadership. 

“The potential and application of technology for inclusive growth has been a game changer for India. To leapfrog, cross-stakeholder industry-government collaboration is becoming more important than ever. The collective initiative of the National e-Governance Division and SAP will support innovation and capacity building to enable the next wave of Digital India’s inclusive and transformational initiatives”, says Abhishek Singh.

SCDG will conduct regular training sessions for government officials to build their technical and digital skills. These trained officials will further accelerate e-governance adoption. SCDG will also work with MeitY, the Ministry of Education, and the Ministry of Commerce to deal with all state and central government digitalisation requirements.
