Virtualisation: Multiple Operating Systems and Applications on One Computer and at the Same Time
Darius Spaiys, IT infrastructure solutions director, Bytelife Solutions, Lithuania
No. 03, 2007
When companies grow, they usually face higher IT infrastructure expenses. Today, however, this no longer need be true. The process of virtualisation allows organisations to use their existing servers in new ways, as opposed to needing to buy new ones.
Systems Must be Introduced for Profit, Not Fashion
Nerius Jasinaviius, partner, TOC Sprendimai consulting firm, Lithuania
No. 03, 2007
The size and cost of an information system do not matter if the technology does not offer a good return on the investment!
New E-Government projects in Latvia
Gunta Kavia, Sakaru Pasaule, Latvia
No. 03, 2007
One of the most important goals for the Secretariat of Special Assignments Minister for Electronic Government Affairs of Latvia is to liberate society from mountains of paper documents by promoting E-government in Latvia and co-ordinating the introduction of E-services among local government and state institutions. We take a look at some of new E-Government projects in Latvia at this time.
Availability and Effectiveness of Electronic Services in Latvia
No. 04, 2006
This article reflects the main results of a study called The Availability and Effectiveness of Electronic Services in Latvia. The aim was to study the accessibility of E-services that are offered by state and government institutions and to determine an indicator concerning their effectiveness. The data can be used to elaborate recommendations to improve the availability and efficiency of E-services. The study was conducted in 2005 by the secretariat of the Latvian minister with special portfolio for E-governance and SIA DATI. The survey was conducted via telephone interviews of 1,116 respondents in all of Latvia, as well as 95 direct interviews of respondents.
Electronic Signature in the E-government: Lithuania waits for the breakthrough
No. 04, 2006
Although laws concerning the E-signature were approved in Lithuania as early as mid-2000, when Lithuania became one of the first countries in Europe to institute a legal framework for the use of the E-signature, it still took a long time to prepare the full E-signature system so that it could be put into practice. This paper summarises the key legal developments in this field and offers a general insight into further trends in this regard. Only the use of the E-signature in the field of public administration is discussed.
The Interoperability of Records Management Systems in the Estonian Public Sector
No. 04, 2006
This article describes a project which focuses on the exchange of electronic records among governmental institutions. The objective is to create an interface for the records management systems of these institutions, guaranteeing their interoperability, increasing the relative importance of E-records exchange in the public sector, and ensuring the transition of the Estonian public sector toward paper-free records management. A pilot project has tested electronic correspondence among four government ministries. In 2007, the records management systems of all ministries will be connected to the X-road via a specially designed documents exchange centre.
Accelerating Online Signature of Electronic Documents
No. 03, 2006
Imagine that a new highway has recently been built, but most people still prefer to drive down their accustomed routes, no matter how much zigzagging and potholes in the road this involves. That is the way in which one could describe the current situation in Lithuania when it comes to signing E-documents. Officials and politicians have done all of the right things the legal framework for E-signatures in Lithuania creates no obstacles against their use. The law on electronic signatures and other pieces of legislation in this area mostly comply with the relevant EU directive and the practises of other EU member states. Although the quality of the new road is quite impeccable, however, few people choose to take that route. The situation must change soon keep reading to learn why.
Nationwide Components of Estonia
No. 03, 2006
Estonian government agencies are all responsible for the development and maintenance of their information systems, and they must all keep in mind the general principles of the states IT interoperability framework. In order to ensure interoperability and a multilateral approach toward public sector information systems, the public sector assumes responsibility for the development and maintenance of several central and nationwide components of these systems. These include the common single point of entry which is a part of collaboration among state information systems, as well as support systems which refer to agreements among state information systems and the relevant middleware.
Latvia Post to Handle E-signatures in Latvia
No. 03, 2006
Since mid-September 2006, the residents of Latvia have had the chance to become owners of an electronic signature. Nearly all of the major post offices of the Latvia Post can handle requests for E-signatures.
IT Solutions in the Development of Health Care Institutions in Latvia
No. 03, 2006
IT solutions are becoming increasingly popular among Latvias health care institutions, even though there are still many obstacles against their full use. Modern information technology solutions are mostly used in Latvia by those health care institutions which have actively planned their economic development and the way in which they care for their patients. Among them there are institutions which provide services to hundreds of patients a day, as well as small private practices which employ between one and four physicians.
