E-Akte Public: rapid, user-friendly performance of administrative tasks

E-Akte Public from T-Systems provides public-sector organizations with powerful, user-friendly functionality for the management for electronic records management in line with applicable legislation. All administrative tasks involved in performing government-agency tasks and managing records are digitally modelled from end-to-end for total transparency – ensuring the location and status of all documents is always known. It enables smart searches, allowing civil servants to find and retrieve all relevant information with ease and speed. Moreover, E-Akte Public supports effective collaboration, both in-house and with other organizations. All objects, including files and process documentation, are saved in a single, standardized database. They can be jointly viewed and processed, and are accessible via mobile devices.

Swift, simple integration

E-Akte Public is based on Microsoft SharePoint, one of the most innovative collaboration platforms in existence. For swift and simple implementation, T-Systems leverages its own app framework. This middleware is modular in design, allowing the solution to be incorporated rapidly and seamlessly into complex systems landscapes – and allowing expansion and enhancement in line with customer-specific needs. This approach also minimizes maintenance effort. E-Akte Public can be operated on-premises or provisioned from a private cloud.
A cloud-based solution hosted at highly-secure T-Systems data centers located in Germany offers the same or even greater flexibility than an in-house model. Moreover, it eliminates the need for high upfront capital expenditure in IT infrastructure – and relieves the customer of routine operational and maintenance tasks. This hosted solution is highly secure and highly reliable, with all data mirrored in a second data center of identical design (twin-core model). The T-Systems private cloud fulfills all statutory obligations with regard to data protection, security and availability.
