Alexander Malakhov, the Head of the Department for Methodological Support of Data Management at the Analytical Center, told ComNews about the opportunities offered by the National Data Management System for citizens, business and the state.
The National Data Management System Will Yield the First Notable Results in 2019
"As part of the experiment, errors in the Federal Information Address System (FIAS) will be corrected, the Central Electoral Commission of the Russian Federation will be able to test the technology for automated collection of the Voter Register in the pilot regions, and the Digital Citizen Profile will be launched," said Mr. Malakhov.
Citizens will receive a new quality of public services in digital format (due to personalization and unification of interfaces for interdepartmental information interaction), including reducing the term of the official response of state authorities from 30 days to one day, expanding the range of public services, which require the submission of only one document, etc.
The National Data Management System will increase productivity and business efficiency of business entities through the use of operational, relevant and reliable data based on industry information and reference services, additional data sources and analytical services, and will reduce the excessive administrative reporting burden.
The National Data Management System will increase the efficiency of government agencies (due to the reduction of errors associated with low levels of data completeness, accuracy and efficiency in government information systems), will increase planning and forecasting accuracy, speed and quality of management decisions through the use of Big Data and machine learning technologies.
Government data that will be managed by the National Data Management System is the data contained in the information resources of state agencies and organizations, as well as in the information resources that are created for the exercise of powers by public authorities and organizations. The National Data Management System will also manage non-government data, if it is provided for the implementation of state powers. The exception is data constituting a state secret. Such data is not allowed to be processed in the National Data Management System.
Mr. Malakhov clarified that all government data should be managed by the National Data Management System. First, the data requirements will be applied to information that has interdepartmental importance, and they will be recommendatory for other data. The best practices and technical solutions will be replicated within the experiment. The methodology of the National Data Management System will be constantly improving, along with the expansion of its scope, until 2022.
"The National Data Management System does not collect the data for itself or store it. The National Data Management System acts as a common methodology, evaluating compatibility and completeness of data in various departmental and regional or municipal registries. The inclusion of information systems in the National Data Management System will be gradual; only closed departmental systems with information constituting a state secret will not enter it," the expert emphasized.
Mr. Malakhov said that the National Data Management System would yield the first notable results for citizens, business and the state already in 2019.
It is worth reminding that that the Analytical Center for the Government of the Russian Federation is the center of competence for the development of the National Data Management System.
