From reference architecture to implementation: experiences from Dutch e-government | Kongres ITAPA 2013: Putting IT togetherHow Netherlanders live?
Why not to miss the presentation?
Netherlanders are mostly high-hearted and pleasant companions who do not like to spend for useless staff. And this is also how they treat their municipalities. The speaker will present three projects with beautiful woman names – NORA, PETRA and WILMA. You will find out what is behind them…
In this talk, Marc Lankhorst will describe the way in which the architecture of e-government in The Netherlands aims to create a coherent experience for citizens and cost-effective, reusable building blocks for administrations. The national government reference architecture (NORA) provides general guidelines, principles and building blocks. Domain-specific reference architectures, NORA's "daughters" such as GEMMA for the municipal domain, PETRA for the Dutch provinces, and WILMA for the water boards, offer more specific guidance, concrete business processes, application services and other building blocks for these domains. Finally, software several vendors provide the actual implementations of these building blocks. Marc will use the municipal domain to illustrate this chain from high-level principles to concrete realization.
