ICT makes administration and science future-proof. The declared goal of the administrative sector is to develop Germany's cities into smart cities. In contrast, the scientific community relies on high performance computing, as excellent research requires the highest computing power and networking to compete on a global level. What's most important here is always maximum availability, the highest security and data protection, as well as continuous cost transparency.
When does a city become smart? When it uses technologies that help urban living spaces to be more sociable and use resources more sustainably. This could be an app which shows drivers the number of free parking spots or street lamps which light up only when needed. Digital public administration, with efficient processes and user-friendly services, is likewise part of the smart city concept. This ensures information is always current, individual processes can be executed significantly more quickly and cooperation between agencies is simpler. Residents, businesses, and public institutions ultimately benefit from this in equal measure.
Only: digitizing existing administrative structures and processes is no trivial task and brings with it new challenges for IT. Here the highest standards must be met for data protection and the security of communication, to ensure that electronic administrative services are accepted and trust is cultivated. The basis for this is stable, available, and secure networks.
The legal guidelines for the conversion have been supplied by the political sphere in the form of the E-Government Act. This regulates the use of modern ICT in federal agencies, which should also have an impact on the digital communication in communes and states in the future, thus paving the way for future-proof, digital administration.
The scientific community is also dependent on high-performance ICT infrastructure for engaging in excellent research: modern communication solutions and cloud-based systems bring together various locations and support common, interdisciplinary work beyond borders and time zones.
Making document management transparent, finding information more quickly, and shortening waiting times: all this is facilitated by E-Akte Public. In so doing, it ensures that internal and inter-agency cooperation is made considerably easier.
E-Akte Public is based on the high-performance SharePoint server from Microsoft, one of the most innovative collaboration platforms. For simple implementation, T-Systems works with its own app framework, upon which the solution depends. Via SharePoint, files can be edited together and final documents can be integrated - securely, even when on the go.
Connectivity is everywhere and brings extensive changes with it. Shaping the future requires a reliable provider of digital services and secure applications. ICT solutions from T-Systems help to future-proof administration and science.
