An all-in-one database SFDB is a data integration and exchange platform that is envisioned to be an all-in-one database used across different departments of the state government to maintain records of various kinds. For example, SFDB can be used by the Department of Revenue to maintain land records pertaining to a citizen and by the Department of Higher Education to maintain education records of the same citizen. Currently, fifteen state departments are expected to participate in this project and each can have its own application and associated database. "The Government of Tamil Nadu and its various departments have embraced computerization and automation to conduct their day-to-day operations.
