INFORMATION, COMMUNICATION AND TECHNOLOGY UNIT

[Photo ICT unit]The Information Communication and Technology (ICT) unit was established for the planning, implementation and development of ICT infrastructure at the Institute. The unit provides a full range of ICT services including technical support for eGovernance (eOffice) application & implementation, data acquisition & dissemination, Local Area Network (LAN), internet services, computer maintenance & IT help desk support and website & application development & integration.

To improve the efficiency, consistency and effectiveness of government processes, IIPS has transformed its office into a digital and paperless environment. In the deployment of eGovernance solution at the Institute, the unit plays a major role in planning, preparation and implementation. An eOffice support team is also established in the ICT unit to provide handholding and support services.

The Institute has a robust data center comprising high-end servers for various system administration services and a network-attached storage server to enable storing and dissemination of demographic datasets. The data center currently has all important datasets, such as those related to census and various rounds of large-scale surveys conducted by the IIPS, which can be directly accessed through LAN by IIPS users. Through a web portal, online databases surveyed by the IIPS are also disseminated to the registered users.

The ICT unit has its primary computer lab equipped with 48 personal computers and 3 LCD projectors. Its second lab with 16 personal computers connected via internet is also available in the ICT unit. Courses that require the use of computers (M.P.S., M.A./M.Sc., M.Sc. Biostatistics and Demography, M.Phil. and short-term training courses) are conducted in these two labs. Computer labs of the ICT unit are equipped with the latest core i5 or higher generation computers. Moreover, necessary statistical software, such as IBM SPSS Version 25, STATA Version 15, SAS 9.4, Stat transfer and ARC GIS Version 10 required to analyze demographic datasets are installed with a multiuser license. In addition, important software, such as Mortpak, Endnote X7 and Atlas Ti, have been installed.

Students, staff and faculty members have internet access on the campus. Under the National Knowledge Network project, the Institute has acquired a 1-GBPS internet link from the National Informatics Center. The IIPS LAN consists of both wired and wireless (Wi-Fi) components and connects all computers in the Institute including portable devices such as laptops. Students, staff, guest and faculty are free to access 24x7 Wi-Fi facility on the campus. A Unified Threat Management Solution has been implemented at the gateway/firewall of the Institute network. By blocking certain kinds of traffic, the firewall protects computers or network at the Institute from unauthorized users and safeguards data from attack.

The Institute’s bilingual (English–Hindi) website and other web applications for online services, such as the online admission test and abstract submission for annual seminars, are also maintained by the ICT unit.
