Mumbai, Feb 10 (IANS) Oracle CEO Safra Catz on Wednesday met Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and discussed how Oracle can provide assistance with smart city apps to improve citizen experiences.

We have 38,000 employees and 700 partners in India and we are still growing strong,” Catz said in a statement.

myOneCity will help citizens interact with government agencies through multiple means of communication with particular focus on mobile and enable authorities to address these concerns through monitoring process.

The complaint gets registered and intelligent backend engines will route it to the right department.

Citizens can take pictures, which will be automatically geo-tagged, and embed them within the complaint.

mHelp will provide citizens and city administration a comprehensive mobile solution for disaster management. The app will ensure timely alerts and response from government for much needed co-ordination between officers on the field and affected citizens.
