In addition, NSHB will through Altinn have access to a service platform which, due to Government funding, is rapidly growing in functional richness. The Altinn platform with its open ended integration architecture, will also serve as an integration platform between NSHB and its customers and collaboration partners.
The new technical platform which is based on the “Data centre of the future” paradigm will provide NSHB with a highly scaleable (computing on demand), flexible, robust and cost efficient platform for NSHB’s total development and operations environment across the complete application portfolio. “NSHB is now, through the use of open standards and open source products, proactively well prepared for the Government’s future requirements to the Public Sector in this area,” says Robertsen.
The modernisation strategy and plan define a road map, which will guide NSHB into the eNorway future. The strategy and plan are closely linked with the new IT Governance model in order to generate maximum return of value from the investments made in the program. “The IT-Governance model will provide NSHB’s management with a consistent framework for prioritising, deciding and reviewing critical aspects of the program, which in turn will considerably reduce the risk exposure,” says Robertsen.
