e-Pragati | Digital Transformation in Public Governance

e-Pragati, the Andhra Pradesh State Enterprise Architecture, is a holistic and coherent framework designed to propel the state into a developed state by 2029 and country’s first state wide enterprise architecture initiative.

SRITNE and ISB’s Centre for Executive Education partnered with Government of Andhra Pradesh to train 92 officers, representing 50 unique state departments as part of the 6-month certificate programme. This programme was well-appreciated by the Chief Minister’s office, and is now being considered as a learning model for replication to address the capacity building needs of remaining state departments and secretary-level bureaucrats.

The programme was designed to meet the developmental needs of select professionals of ePragati officers representing various departments of Government of Andhra Pradesh to “develop the next generation of CIOs, Enterprise Architects contributing to Government goals, industry stewardship by advancing their profession.”
