Mexican Statistics Agency Coordinates Data Collection Using Collaboration Portal
When the Mexican Congress passed legislation in 2008, the Instituto Nacional de Estad?stica y Geograf?a (INEGI) became an autonomous agency, responsible for coordinating and managing the production of statistical and geographic information about the country, including population figures, economic data, and geographical facts. Because this information is produced by several different governmental agencies, it was necessary for INEGI to create a way to collaborate and coordinate with these other agencies. Working with bSide, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, INEGI used Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 to create a collaboration portal in just two months. The portal provides an easy way for Mexican governmental agencies to interact and collaborate on common projects that affect the way that statistical information is gathered, processed, and published.
