When Wuhan reported an unknown cause of Pneumonia to WHO in Dec 2019, they never thought that it would turn out to be a pandemic that can make the world standstill. The whole world is fighting against the COVID 19 Pandemic and the City Councils are not different from it. Being standing on the frontline, the responsibilities are vast and the resource availability for the same is limited. Leveraging technologies that can bring in high impact is an approach followed by most of the City Councils. Out of the several technology innovations available in the market, substituting human resources with AI Conversational Assistants was the one that is being widely adopted. Whether it's fighting against misinformation or being in the frontline for public service delivery, AI-powered chatbots can take the lead. In this article, we are talking about how City Councils can use a chatbot in their fight against the pandemic. ? Some Use Cases where Chatbots can be deployed Fight Against Misinformation: Chatbots can be trained to act as a frontline touchpoint for public information delivery. Whether its FAQ or Query resolution or real-time data update, the chatbot helps 24*7*365 days.? ? Virtual Advisory: When citizens are confined to their home, they can seek advice from chatbots in various areas like health and well-being tips, symptoms, home remedies etc. Natural Language understanding capability of bots ensure apt response for citizen queries. ? Case Reporting: Chatbots can be connected to emergency services to ensure quick reporting of cases by the public when they have the symptoms. ? Daily Updates: Bots have the capability to initiate communication triggers, which can be used to deliver daily updates on the pandemic and its prevention. ? Service Requests: Bots can collect service requests to form citizens. This includes Waste Collection, Street Cleaning/disinfection, Pothole reporting etc ? Payment Collections: Chatbots can serve as a single point for all payment collections. Whether it's a water bill or electricity bill or taxes, citizens can make payments without stepping out of their home. ? Feedback Collections: CIty councils can also use chatbots to understand whether their citizens are satisfied with the level of service delivery or do they require anything in addition. It is also possible to conduct surveys using chatbots. ? Where they can be deployed? Websites: Chabot widgets can be enabled in websites so that citizens accessing the website can communicate with them. ? Mobile Applications: Any existing/new mobile applications can offer chatbot support via the platform. ? Social Channels: Bots can be deployed on platforms like Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger, Telegram Etc. where citizens are present. ? IVR System: Chatbot services can also be implemented in IVR systems. These platforms are capable of understanding human speech and convert it to queries and respond back to them.? ? How long will it take to deploy bots who can serve citizens? Depending on the number of use cases and deployment channels the time is expected to change. Training chatbots to these use cases also require some time. But considering the urgency of the situation, it is possible to deploy chatbots with pre-trained intelligence. They can be put into action from the next working day itself. Many chatbot platforms are offering this.? Let’s join our hands to overcome this contingency. To help City Councils in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic, we are coming up with a ?FREE Pre-Trained Chatbot Solution that can be deployed in 24 hours. Reach us, if you are interested. We are more than happy to deliver you a demo of the same.? ? REF: https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/events-as-they-happen ?

Authors: Ijas Ansari, Thomas P. Thomas Prepare for the latest from Drupal. The latest version of Drupal - Drupal 9 - will be released in June 2020. If you are on Drupal 6 or 7, you can either move to Drupal 8.8 now which is in all intents and purposes Drupal 9 itself and let it be auto-upgraded onto Drupal 9 or you can wait till the Drupal 9 release in June 2020 to do the upgrade [You should wait only if you want to deny your organization the benefits of Drupal 8 & 9 for another 6 months.]. The move to Drupal 8 will offer you a set of serious benefits for your Digital Transformation initiatives including preparedness for a world of mobility, intuitive content authoring experience, and great performance and speed. The next upgrade from Drupal 8.8 to Drupal 9 will be a simple affair like applying a regular security patch and will offer you a highly efficient codebase. Read on to know more. Drupal 8 was a watershed moment for Drupal with the move to include many Symfony components in its? core. It offered tremendous benefits to site developers and site owners who are executing on their Digital Transformation plans. For Digital Transformation, content is considered to be the key link between business and customers and providing the right content at the right time to the right customer is the key to offering? high-quality digital experience. This is exactly what Drupal 8 enables through its strategic priorities of content authoring experience, mobility, integrations, and performance capabilities. A detailing of these benefits are given below. High-quality Content Authoring Experience: With the combined features of out of the box content types and powerful editorial interfaces available on desktop and mobile, Drupal 8 provides great flexibility for creating, modifying and presenting content. Mobile-First Approach: Drupal 8 comes with responsiveness at its core. It is not only responsive for users it comes with a mobile-first approach but also for the content manager. With Drupal 8 you can even review and manage content from any device at any time. Advanced Content Delivery Capability: Drupal offers content as a service approach that enables any content or configurations in Drupal 8/9 accessed via a web service.? Various sources such as native mobile applications or smart TV apps can now directly connect to a Drupal 8/9 website. Site Speed: In the fast-moving digital world, time has high value and every customer is expecting zero delays in accessing information or services online from businesses. With built-in caching modules and delivery of pages using the BigPipe technique, Drupal is able to serve the user with zero latency. SEO Capabilities: Usage of HTML 5 in Drupal 8 makes it search bot friendly and will help you get indexed correctly. It also improves the overall performance of the website.? Along with this, Drupal 8 offers built-in modules to enable and manage SEO on your website. Continuous Innovation and Backward Compatibility of new drupal releases: Starting from version 8, Drupal will be providing continuous innovation and backward compatibility for new drupal minor releases. That means Drupal will release new features every 6 months as a minor release which will be backward compatible. Multilingual Capabilities: The multilingual capabilities of drupal come in hand when you want to create sites in different languages. Basic functionalities and modules available in Drupal enable you to build websites in more than 90 languages easily. Integration Capabilities: Drupal is equipped to seamlessly operate with adjacent technologies. It's APIs and external libraries make it interoperable with other enterprise applications such as CRM, Web Analytics, Digital Asset Management, and Multi-Channel Campaign Management. Security: Drupal is a secure CMS and application framework that is designed to overcome OWASP’s top 10 web application security risks. It is the Drupal's security team and peer-reviewed code that makes Drupal the most secure Free and Open Source WebCMS available. Drupal 8 uses Twig, which is a secure theming engine, makes it many fold secure than the previous versions of Drupal. If you are on a Drupal 6 or 7 version, you should seriously consider a move to Drupal 8.8 immediately which can be seamlessly upgraded onto Drupal 9 with zero effort.. Migration from Drupal 6 or 7 to Drupal 8 is a substantial effort but it will be worth every penny as it will not only help you bring in more traffic with its SEO friendliness but also help you deliver an ecstatic customer experience. If you are already on Drupal 8, you just need to keep up with your updates and the migration will be done by June 2020. The move to Drupal 9 gives you the benefits that Drupal 8 has and you will have a system that is bereft of deprecated code with the latest version of Symfony and other libraries at its core. Drupal 9 is being created with the strategic priorities of cost reduction through automatic updates and configuration management. It prioritizes the beginner experience to attract more users by providing the best experience for the first time user and focuses on accessibility, inclusiveness, security, privacy, and interoperability to drive the open web and make Drupal the best in class content management system with flexible APIs.

Authors: Ijas Ansari,?Thomas P. Thomas Digital technologies are reshaping industries and organizations are responding to it by going through their own Digital Transformation journeys. In a general context, Digital Transformation can be defined as the integration of digital technology into the overall business process of an organization to create a radical change in the fundamental business model and the way in which it delivers value to its customers. In a study conducted by Smart Insight, they have identified that around 34% of organizations already have digital transformation plans in place. Some of the key technology enablers for digital transformation are Mobile Computing, Cloud Computing, SaaS Platforms, Web Service Integration, Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning, Big Data & Predictive Analytics, and Business Process Automation. Today’s digital-age-customers are expecting to get more than what has traditionally been offered by businesses. Over 76% of the customers think that their vendors should understand their expectations and needs. Customers expect the business to serve them with personalized services when they engage with the business.? Businesses should be ready to satisfy the customer’s expectations whenever they choose to engage with the business. Therefore, digital transformation is a survival imperative for businesses. It is in this context that modern Web Content Management Systems (WebCMS) are becoming the centerpiece to businesses. In a digital business, content is considered to be the link between business and customers. Business needs to create and serve content that the customers are looking for at the exact time and place they require. A robust WCMS is a necessary starting point for this. Drupal is one of the most robust WCMSs on the planet at the moment. It has been so for over a decade now. Gartner has recognized Drupal (Acquia) as a Leader in its Magic Quadrant for Digital Experience Platform in 2020. [Gartner had also recognized Drupal as a leader in the WebCMS category which was later replaced by the Digital Experience Platform category]. Drupal is also a Free and Open Source Content Management System that offers immense customization possibilities.
