    E-ID and X-road data exchange between government and private sector entities

    Cybernetica

    The X-Road is the backbone of e-Estonia and was initiated by the Estonian government to enable secure data exchange between governmental organisations. The first version was developed by Cybernetica and launched in 2001.

    X-Road is a distributed information exchange platform that makes it possible for all different systems to communicate all across the governmental sector; for example, the police can access data from the health system, tax board or business registry and vice versa.

    It has enabled to increase the depth of cooperation between public organizations and reduced paper work exponentially so that public employees can concentrate on tasks that require human interaction.

    11.00-12.00

    Estonian Association of Information Technology and Telecommunications (officially abbreviated as ITL) is a voluntary organisation, whose primary objective is to unite the Estonian information technology and telecommunications companies and organisations, to promote their co-operation in Estonia’s development towards information society, to represent and protect the interests of its member companies and to express their common positions.  The turnover of companies belonging to ITL makes up over 70% of the total turnover of the Estonian ICT sector. ITL is representing Estonia in many international cooperation projects, inlcuding digitalisation cooperation in Africa.

     

    Government Budget Management System

    with Aktors
    The main objective of the Budget Management System (BMS) is to administer and supervise the government and public-sector spending. BMS is a small banking system where the government and public-sector institutions act as customers. Accounts of government institutions are virtual accounts (e-accounts) inside the BMS system, real bank accounts where the real money is deposited are owned and handled only by the Ministry of Finance. This setup guarantees a central point of control and reporting of the whole public-sector spending and reduced costs of bank transactions.
