“Service views comprise the most visible product of the national service architecture programme. The programme gathers public services for administrative customers – citizens, companies and other authorities – and a selection of private services in a separate personal service view,” says Janne Viskari, director of the Population Register Centre's Architecture for Digital Services unit, and continues:
“Users can quickly and easily search for and use the services they need, review their registration data (personal, vehicle, property data, etc.), communicate with authorities and get reminders or recommendations regarding the use of the services. The service views will be built for mobile devices and larger screens, while focusing on the customer.”
“Turning public sector services into digital format is one of the most important development projects in our society. For more than 15 years, Cybercom has offered strong support to digital businesses and the public sector in this development. We are excited to have the chance to build a service which combines the services of the state, municipalities and private service providers into a single service view which all parties can utilise effectively. It makes services easier and their development more cost-efficient. This is an important assignment for us, and further strengthens Cybercom's role as an agile developer of open source code services for the Finnish public administration,” says Petteri Puhakka, managing director of Cybercom Finland.
The implementation of the service views is included in the national service architecture (KaPA) programme which creates a functional infrastructure for digital services. The objective of the programme is to make it simpler and easier for citizens to be in contact with companies, associations and authorities. Cybercom will implement application services for agile development associated with the service views project.
The national service views will be implemented in 2014–2017. The implementation programme includes projects concerning the service channel, service views, identification, and role and authorisation management. The service channel is a data transfer channel which enables the transfer of data between organisations and makes service development more effective. The production use of the service channel will begin in spring 2015. Through the service views, the personal data of citizens, entrepreneurs and government officials, as well as electronic services, are available in a single location through a single user interface. In the first phase, the view for citizens will be implemented, with its demo to be released in January 2015. Its beta version will be released in autumn 2015.
