Persistent Systems has announced a new, innovative Multilingual Intelligent Search and Analytics Solution – addressing the needs of India’s State legislatures. The Hon’ble Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Mr. Akhilesh Yadav, inaugurated the solution at the Vidhaan Sabha Bhavan in Lucknow.
Uttar Pradesh Vidhaan Sabha, India’s largest state assembly, is the first state legislature in the country to embrace the Persistent Systems solution and to embark on such a comprehensive digitization of the proceedings of the State Legislature. SemanticBits, a Hyderabad-based company, partnered with Persistent as part of a consortium for this initiative.
“The Legislature of the State of Uttar Pradesh is the first State Legislature to undertake this stupendous task. Persistent Systems with their partner SemanticBits have completed the task successfully and they deserve appreciation for that. The features of this software like its search engine and other aspects are the latest technology in the field,“ said Mr. Pradeep Dubey, Principal Secretary, Legislative Secretariat Uttar Pradesh. “I hope other state assemblies will follow suit.”
“Like every business is becoming software-driven, the opportunity is in front of every state to become software-driven in its functioning. It is a privilege and an honor for all of us at Persistent Systems to be able to impact and improve lives with such a solution. There is an urgent need in India today to make Governments more accessible, transparent, and efficient – both within its own departments and to the general public.” said Dr. Anand Deshpande, Persistent Systems founder and CEO.
