MUMBAI, April 22, 2015 /CNW/ - Rolta today announced that its eGovernance solution implementation has received the prestigious eGovernment Excellence Award 2015 from the Government of Bahrain. Winners of the eGovernment Excellence Award 2015 were honored by Deputy Prime Minister and the Chairman of the Supreme Committee for Information and Communication Technology, Shaikh Mohammed bin Mubarak Al Khalifa.
The award for the best eGovernment project was won by the Ministry of Works, Municipalities and Urban Planning ("MOW") for their Enterprise Asset Management System ("EAMS") project. EAMS was designed, developed and implemented by Rolta. Rolta adopted an innovative approach to seamlessly integrate data pertaining to roads, drainage and government buildings in the Kingdom of Bahrain from four major repositories based on disparate technologies - Infor, IBM, Oracle and ESRI - around Rolta OnPoint™. The solution provided by Rolta addresses the management of the full life cycle of an asset covering planning, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and retirement. EAMS has enabled Bahrain MOW staff, even with minimal IT skills, to carry out routine tasks and asset performance analytics more rapidly and cost-effectively.
Commenting on the award received by MOW, Mr. Hisham Yousif Sater, Director - ITD, Ministry of Works said, "The EAMS project has been instrumental in reducing costs and enhancing the overall effectiveness of asset management. He added, "Rolta has worked with us in true spirit of partnership, and can justifiably take pride in this recognition bestowed on MOW by the Supreme Committee."
