According to PTI, the 'app' is an enterprise solution that will be hosted on cloud, facilitating remote access and enrolment through 3G-enabled mobile devices from across the region. The data captured will be stored on cloud, which will be the central database. The solution will be optimised for low bandwidth and intermittent connectivity, both common concerns in the rural environments where this app will primarily be used, it said.
"The acquired social data will be an excellent repository for analysis, and through advanced analytics it is bound to yield meaningful information that can serve as the baseline for future public schemes and policies," the statement said.
