City of Karlsruhe How Local Councils and Mayors Channel the Information Explosion
The city of Karlsruhe is networking digital information to enable well founded decision making. Karlsruhe introduced a consulting and administrative information system (ravis) based on the IBM Websphere Portal for central access to internal and external information sources. In addition the corporate search engine, IBM OmniFind was integrated for easy searching over all data sources. One uniform interface lets users reach different data sources for structured access (portal) as well as unstructured access (search). Access takes place via the web browser and single sign-on.
