e-Pragati Architecture Vision
This document presents high-level architecture vision of e-Pragati (a.k.a Andhra Pradesh State Enterprise Architecture or APSEA). The central theme of e-Pragati is to provide “just enough” structure, which can be created “just in time” to meet transformational requirements of the Government. The e-Pragati architecture shall work as meta-model, where the architecture of various departments and agencies should conform to this meta-model.
Technical Standards for Interoperability Framework for e-Governance
An interoperability framework for e-Governance is essential to support flow of information through which applications can interoperate. This document describes technical standards to be adapted for e-Governance applications to ensure interoperability.
All e-Pragati applications need to follow same standards across to achieve ONE Government vision. This document describes various IT standards that shall be adopted to all applications under e-Pragati framework.
All new and existing applications which are under e-Pragati framework, shall adhere to its specific architecture compliance requirements. This document describes various business, application, data and technology architecture compliance requirements of e-Pragati.
Architecture Governance Structure
The governance structure is concerned with leadership, organizational structures, and processes that:
1. Set strategic enterprise goals
2. Provide direction and strategy on achieving the goals
3. Secure and allocate resources to activities
4. Establish measures for activities and results directed at achieving the goals
5. Manage risks in the process of achieving the goals and operating the business
6. Measure performance to ensure business value is being achieved
To operationalize Enterprise Architecture Governance in AP, following key components would be used:
1. EA Governance Framework:
A set of standards, procedures and operating protocols that guide and direct decisions around the adoption, reuse, reporting, and retirement of architecture of information system and related technology.
2. EA Organization/Practice:
A cross-functional, multi-disciplinary team which will consist of:
- Enterprise Architecture Design Group : A cross organization board members or identified IT steering committee leaders to oversee the implementation of EA
- Enterprise Architecture Support Group : A team with backing of EA Design Group to oversee the architecture of key strategic initiatives. This team will be responsible for overall architecture review and planning by using defined set of architecture governance processes.
- EA Working Group : This team will consist of domain architects which will be led by Lead Enterprise Architect to manage and maintain architecture work across the state enterprise.
- EA Extended Group : EA departmental consultants will act as single point of contact (SPOC) for aligning departmental architecture with AP State Enterprise Architecture and guide departments in its implementation.
Benefits of Architecture Governance
Significant cost savings will be achieved with right governance model in government enterprise. In addition, Architecture Governance:
1. Brings clarity in roles and responsibilities through management oversight
2. Facilitates clear and quick decision making on contentious issues by bringing in transparency and accountability
3. Preserves architectural coherence by weaving in a compliance culture
4. Keeps architecture relevant and useful in a pragmatic manner
5. Elevates the role of and accentuates visibility accorded to architecture within the government
6. Expedites adoption of architecture thinking in the government
7. Ensures that architecture efforts are expended in the right activities
8. Sets focus on performance improvement leading to attainment of best practices
The Government provides wide range of services to citizens, business entities, and employees through its’ departments. The service portfolio is an important business architecture building block of e-Pragati.

In simple terms Localisation is the process of adapting a system for local language and culture nuances.
For the fruits of e-governance applications to reach the masses, it is important that the content of applications be localised. Today most applications get designed developed in English and language is an afterthought. At e-pragati, we are trying to change this mind set. The multi-pronged approach targets existing brown-field as well as new green-field projects.
Surface Localisation of website:
Deeper Localisation if web applications :
For interactive applications having databases it is imperative that the data be in in local languages. For applications under development there will be periodic trainings conducted for developers. The training will cover
- Standards to implement for Indian language
- Localisation Guidelines
- Tools for Indian languages
Telugu by default.
The following websites are made in Telugu under this mission:
