Image Matters : E-Governance Redefined

In the early 1990s, the idea of e-governance was brought to the limelight to raise the quality of services delivered by governments to citizens and businesses. However, almost two decades later today, as we stand in the epoch of digitalization, e-governance seems to have just left its initial mark. Industry stalwart Kurt Buehler, who possesses experience worth 25 years in enterprise architecture and planning, needs assessments, and other domains, explains, “E-governance is about government to citizen and business, to other governments, and government to employee making sure that these systems coherently work together and exchange information to ensure valuable transactions.“ Hence, having proper knowledge of the authoritative source of data plays a crucial role in shaping e-governance procedures. Buehler thinks that many federal entities could benefit from linking their vast portfolios of data and applications to their enterprise capabilities, operational activities, and systems/applications. That combination is enterprise architecture and linked data. It would enable more rapid decision-making processes, increase productivity at the enterprise level, and help them understand and manage change within their complex enterprises.

This is where Image Matters makes a significant difference by helping federal customers understand their data and augmenting the mission of their services while making data readily available and accessible. The company focuses on sound enterprise architecture and related policies to empower customers and enables them to navigate through the complex panorama of e-governance readily. “We bank on our rich experience in various verticals—semantics, geospatial information, AI, and others—concerning the federal marketplace and strive hard to devise strategies that help customers deliver on their mission,” remarks Buehler, President, Image Matters.

Image Matters acknowledges that the doctrine of e-governance is not solely based on IT but the people and processes involved in it. It requires thoughtful enterprise-level architecting that ensures positive results. And to bring this to effect, the company delves deep into clients’ infrastructure to identify the root of a problem. It analyzes every aspect of the enterprise to better understand the nature of the challenge and accordingly defines it to develop a plan of action.better understand the nature of the challenge and accordingly defines it to develop a plan of action. This may result in recognizing duplication of data and applications/systems and potentially removing redundancy. Image Matters outlines a solution that renders enterprise resources visible, accessible, understandable, linked, trusted, interoperable, and secure.
