Technology holds the potential of transforming governance in Nigeria, bringing about greater efficiency and increased output for the country. By better leveraging innovative technology that drives automation, we can streamline administrative processes, enhance service delivery, make data-led decisions for the future, and improve the lives of Nigerians.

Melanie Ayoola, Group Executive Director of Tranter IT, the official and exclusive distributor of ManageEngine solutions in Nigeria, said this at the dynamic and first-of-its kind 2024 ManageEngine ITGov Conference, which held across two days recently in Lagos and Abuja.

At the event, public sector leaders, technology experts, business innovators, and other stakeholders explored the intersection of technology and governance in public sector organisations.
“With the right technology in place, we have the opportunity to bridge longstanding gaps in governance, fostering a more prosperous society where government and her institutions can better serve the people, using automation to manage infrastructure, take data-led decisions, and generally impact lives.

“With the increasing adoption of automation technology specifically, there would be a rise in the productivity of public workforce resulting as well in the maximal output across board in governance,” said Ayoola.
ManageEngine’s suite of IT management tools offers comprehensive solutions for public and private sector organisations of all sizes, empowering them to secure, simplify, and optimise their IT infrastructure. From network and server management to cybersecurity, helpdesk support, and beyond, ManageEngine’s robust platform is already helping forward-looking government agencies to optimise their IT resources, deliver superior services to citizens, and uphold the highest standards of governance in the digital age.

Adebiyi-Abiola Bilikiss, General Manager of the Lagos State Residents Registration Agency (LASSRA), praised the partnership between Tranter IT and ManageEngine, acknowledging ManageEngine’s role in improving efficiency and streamlining processes within her agency especially as its automation feature has enhanced the process around the distribution of the resident cards.

Also speaking at the event, Engr Ibilola Kasumu, Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Ministry of Science, Innovation and Technology, said digital transformation is at the heart of the agenda of the Lagos State Government as such “we recognise that to achieve our goals, we must modernise our processes, embrace innovation, and harness the power of technology. One of the key areas where we are taking significant strides is in the digitisation of government services.”

Kasumu noted that her ministry is leading the innovation charge in Lagos state through the Lagos State Science, Research, and Innovation Council (LASRIC) which supports over 50 startups and numerous research projects across institutions in the state and aims to enhance government’s efficiency, effectiveness, and responsiveness to citizens’ needs.
Tranter IT, with over a decade of experience in government and business solutions, has partnered with ManageEngine for over 11 years, demonstrating its commitment to providing advanced IT solutions to drive Nigeria’s advancement in a fiercely competitive world.

ITGov 2024, which spanned two days across Abuja Continental Hotel and Four Points by Sheraton Lekki Lagos, is one of Nigeria’s foremost events for IT professionals from both public and private sectors, alongside industry leaders, policymakers, technology resellers, and enthusiasts.
