The Unique Identiﬁcation Authority of India (UIDAI), established by the Government of India, is mandated to issue a unique identiﬁcation number (called Aadhaar or UID) with associated biometric data to all residents to allow them to identify themselves anywhere in India, and to access a host of beneﬁts and services.
Here is how Mindtree helped the UIDAI build an ambitious data management portal with information pertaining to millions of residents alongside thousands of employees and partners.
The customer wanted to build a single portal to share and manage data pertaining to its stakeholders―residents, employees and partners. This included master and transaction data, demographic and status of enrollments and certiﬁcation data. There were several challenges in organizing and displaying this data, including:
To meet the customer's needs, Mindtree created a common platform called the UIDAI Admin Portal. The solution was delivered using an agile approach based on iterative and incremental development.
The solution was built largely on open-source technologies for the database, search, secure access, trend analysis and bulk operation capabilities.
Going forward, Mindtree has also been tasked with maintaining and further building out the system as more features and partners are added to the program.
