New Platform Integrates State Agencies, Streamlines Citizen Processes

The Flemish Government oversees the education, culture, health care, and international development of the Flemish community in Belgium. The government wanted to reduce the administrative burden on citizens. A team of 20 HP specialists contributed to the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) project. They are part of a consortium of 450 staff, managing up to 100 simultaneous projects on any given day at the Flemish Government. After an initial assessment and road map in September 2005, HP started working on the core solution, a state-of-the-art, inter-agency data exchange platform known as Maximum Data Sharing Between Administrations and Agencies (MAGDA).
