HP Develops Portal For DGE&T's SDI Scheme

HP Enterprise Services have developed a web-portal, a centralised system to manage the entire operations of SDI Scheme under DGE& T, and bring all the regional offices, States, VTPs and ABs onto a single platform.

The portal has been developed as project for the Directorate General of Employment & Training (DGE&T). It aims at enabling effective implementation of Skill Development Scheme (SDIS) to promote training of around 6 lakh people in India annually.

“Government institutions like DGE&T need technology solutions that can support large number of users and provide timely information to various stakeholders as necessary, and in a transparent manner,” said Marshal Correia, Vice-President & General Manager, HP Enterprise Services, HP India. “Developed to meet customer needs, HP Application Management services for the portal will help DGE&T to increase the pool of skilled manpower in the country,” he added.

“The Skill Development Initiative (SDI) scheme was introduced to develop skilled manpower, provide employment and help citizens to have an improved standard of living,” said Sharda Prasad, Director General /Joint Secretary. “With this web portal, timely access to information across all stakeholders would be available thereby offering better citizen-centric services in a transparent manner as stated by the Director General/Joint Secretary, DGE&T.”

The SDIS web portal would help the DGE&T in registering candidates, VTPs, and ABs. It will also track the creation of training or assessment batches, publishing test results and dispersal of online certificates.

As part of the agreement, HP will manage applications for the portal, along with hardware at the datacentre in addition to maintenance and support through the entire duration of the project. HP will provide support for three years and has trained over 2000 users across 30 states of India to administer the SDIS portal.
