Diaspora- Innovative Solution by zaiTEC Logixs

zaiTEC Logixs have started working with Pakistan Embassy Ireland in 2020. Back then they were managing their entire diaspora operations through excel sheets. After having multiple iterations of requirement gathering zaiTEC was able to make a high-level architecture of their operations and then proposed a Diaspora/Consular Payment Management System that can automate their entire diaspora/consular services including workflow management, appointment booking, standardized receipts, reporting, and data analytics. The end product was deployed in a very short period of time and was well appraised by Pakistan Embassy Ireland and the diaspora. Pakistan Embassy Ireland utilized the system in a meaningful manner and was able to generate different analytics through the system. The following is just a glimpse of analytics and reporting through Diaspora/Consular Payment Management System.

An organized approach at collecting data is extremely important to draw meaningful conclusions.

In 2021, we worked on our processes to facilitate the same and answered  the question of Diaspora spread in the country


When does our Diaspora usually book their Passport appointments?

Again, conventional wisdom dictates it is done in their free time, esp. weekends. However, data shows that our Diaspora mostly sits down to book appointments on Mondays, Tuesdays & Wednesdays between 10 am-2 pm

Privacy by Design (PbD)

Privacy by Design (PbD)

Privacy by Design is a proactive framework that embeds privacy into the design, developement and operations of systems and products. Due lots of Data privacy regulation like GDPR, HIPPA etc we always think privacy of our customer as our first pripority. Lets learn what is Privacy by Design framwork and how we think when we design, develop and test the software applications for our clients.

Privacy by Design (PbD)

The Privacy by Design (PbD) framework is characterized by the taking of proactive rather than reactive measures. It anticipates the risks and prevents privacy invasive events before they occur.  PbD does not wait for privacy risks to materialize, nor does it offer remedies for resolving privacy infractions once they have occurred — it aims to identify the risks and prevent the harms from arising. In short, Privacy by Design comes before-the-fact, not after.

Privacy as the default setting

We can all be certain of one thing — the default rules! Privacy by Design seeks to deliver the maximum degree of privacy by ensuring that personal data are automatically protected in any given IT system or business practice, as the default. If an individual does nothing, their privacy remains intact. No action is required on the part of the individual to protect their privacy — it is already built into the system, by default.

Privacy embedded into design

Privacy measures are embedded into the design and architecture of IT systems and business practices. These are not bolted on as add-ons, after the fact. The result is that privacy becomes an essential component of the core functionality being delivered. Privacy is thus integral to the system, without diminishing functionality.

Full functionality: positive-sum, not zero-sum

Privacy by Design seeks to accommodate all legitimate interests and objectives in a positive-sum “win-win” manner, not through the dated, zero-sum (either/or) approach, where unnecessary trade-offs are made. Privacy by Design avoids the pretence of false dichotomies, such as privacy vs. security, demonstrating that it is indeed possible to have both

End-to-end security: full lifecycle protection

Privacy by Design, having been embedded into the system prior to the first element of information being collected, extends securely throughout the entire lifecycle of the data involved — strong security measures are essential to privacy, from start to finish. This ensures that all data are securely collected, used, retained, and then securely destroyed at the end of the process, in a timely fashion. Thus, Privacy by Design ensures cradle to grave, secure lifecycle management of information, end-to-end.

Visibility and transparency: keep it open

Privacy by Design seeks to assure all stakeholders that whatever the business practice or technology involved, it is in fact, operating according to the stated promises and objectives, subject to independent verification. The data subject is made fully aware of the personal data being collected, and for what purpose(s). All the component parts and operations remain visible and transparent, to users and providers alike. Remember, trust but verify!

Respect for user privacy: keep it user-centric

Above all, Privacy by Design requires architects and operators to keep the interests of the individual uppermost by offering such measures as strong privacy defaults, appropriate notice, and empowering user-friendly options. The goal is to ensure user-centred privacy in an increasingly connected world. Keep it user-centric.
