Digital and Population Data Services Agency – Building a more digital Finland
The Digital and Population Data Services Agency and Loihde Advance are building a digital Finland together. The Digital and Population Data Services Agency selected Loihde Advance as its data warehouse development partner to implement the National Service Architecture Program’s electronic support service metrics for the administration. Agile data warehouse development began in January 2017 and is still ongoing. Loihde Advances’ development team is implementing the project under the guidance of the Digital and Population Data Services Agency and in cooperation with Suomi.fi services.
Suomi.fi services are building a digital Finland
The National Service Architecture, KaPA, was a program launched in 2014 with a view to developing the compatibility and retrievability of the digital services of the state, municipalities, and companies. The Suomi.fi services implemented in the KaPA program have taken e-services to a new level in Finland. The common logo of the Suomi.fi services is the Suomi.fi flag symbol.
The Suomi.fi online service includes the Suomi.fi identification service and the Suomi.fi authorization service for electronic authorization. Suomi.fi messages is the electronic mailbox for interaction with public authorities. The Suomi.fi Finnish Service Catalogue offers public services and communication channels in a uniform manner. Thee system’s interfaces are subject indexed, allowing the services to be retrieved and utilized in any electronic service.
Nina Wiiala, Product Owner of the data warehouse, is pleased with the results of the project’s pilot phase: “The Loihde Advance development team has done a great job, so we are in a good position to continue this demanding project.”
