KOLKATA: Oracle wants to leverage its experience in the e-governance space in India and replicate the model, with necessary customization, in other geographies such as Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Taiwan and Eastern Europe, according to Krishan Dhawan, Managing Director of Oracle India Pvt Ltd.

Dhawan said that Oracle had already proved its experience and capabilities in the e-governance arena in a complex developing market such as India. "When we now go to potential clients elsewhere in the world and showcase what we have been able to achieve in India, they are willing to take note and listen to us," he said. The revenue that could be generated on a global scale could be "huge", he added.

According to him, Oracle India has been aiding the e-governance efforts of several states such as West Bengal, Orissa, Andhra Pradesh, Pondicherry, the North-Eastern States and Uttaranchal. It has also partnered with the e-governance initiatives of the Gujarat State Electricity Board and Kolkata Municipal Corporation, among other organizations.

Oracle has set up an "E-Governance Center of Excellence" in Gurgaon to support the initiatives of the Center, States and local government bodies. "We have a leadership position in the space and have demonstrated what can be done," Dhawan said.

"We see adoption of e-governance increasing in the months ahead," he added.
