Brazil has always had economic growth potential. Six years ago that potential was obvious. But the drop in commodity prices and the economic slowdown in China has not been kind to Brazil. Brazil’s GDP growth is shrinking, and even though the new president wants the economy to improve in 2017, the chances of making a major comeback are doubtful. The political instability, inflation, and debt burden are working against President Temer, and parts of his government are working against him too.
Brazil is the most urbanized member of the BRICS alliance. Russia, China, India and South America have fewer people living in cities than Brazil. More than 86 percent of Brazil’s population lives in urban areas. That is 12 percent more than Russia, 30 percent more than China, and 53 percent more than India. Most of Brazil’s economic issues are big city issues. City officials in Rio, São Paulo, Salvador, Porto Alegre and other metropolitan areas are trying to reverse the economic tide and bring the country back from the bowels of recession.
São Paulo is the leader, when it comes to economic output, population, wealth, and just about any other category that relates to economic growth. Sao Paulo is the first city to embrace the tech company, E-governe in a big way. Sao Paulo is rolling out the E-governe Educacao School Management System in 138 city schools. The E-governe system is a new approach to teaching, learning and administering. The plan is to use the E-governe system in city government and in all the city schools.
E-governe is an interesting concept. E-governe is three companies in one. Each company brings different skill sets to the system. Minauro Informatica is a software company, Consult is an information company, and Sisterplan is a technology company. The company uses algorithms, new techniques in administration, data security, and other innovative systems to enhance productivity, increase awareness, and implement necessary changes in old procedures.
São Paulo is one of the seven Brazilian cities with double-digit dips in GDP growth. The economic downturn was due to productivity reductions, unemployment, a decline in exports, and manufacturing changes. Manufacturing jobs are becoming scarce, and that is one reason the city of São Paulo is embracing the E-governe system. Another reason is to enhance the city’s education platform. There is a push to get more kids in college, and São Paulo’s city leaders think the Educacao School Management System will be the tool that helps the city reach that goal.
The Educacao School Management System will also help the city attract more investors, according to some São Paulo city officials. If São Paulo can turn the tide, and implement better administrative procedures using E-governe systems, it will be a game-changer in the largest country in Latin America. E-governe is helping other cities in Brazil. The response and the results prove that innovative technology can turn a recessionary country into an economic powerhouse once the system is running smoothly in all areas of city government. https://www.facebook.com/pages/E-Governe/325368564267182
