Integrated system of information and analytical support for executive public authorities of St. Petersburg

One of the most important projects of the Committee on IT and Communications has been the creation and development of Integrated system of information and analytical support for executive public authorities of St. Petersburg (hereinafter - IS IAS).  In 2008, IS IAS was integrated into national information computer system Management as its regional component. Today it is a vertically integrated system to monitor and predict social and economic development of the region. Every year IS IAS expands to cover additional aspects of city's activities. Its analytical summaries contain comprehensive analysis of current situation as well as short-term and medium-term projections for challenging and strategically important spheres of the city.

The key result of introduction of IS IAS was the adoption of pro-active approach instead of former reactive approach in management. Today management decisions are based on current data and, moreover, on medium-term projections that contributes to improve city resources, take measures to prevent potential problems and allows to work in perspective.
