The Canary Islands Government has made a firm commitment to modernizing its justice system in order to make it more flexible and efficient. These efforts are based on two fundamental pillars: organization and technology. In the Canary Islands Justice Administration, this technological progress has a name: Atlante. This system has exponentially improved the region’s judicial processes. With even greater levels of integration, the new upgrade to Atlante II will further enhance the justice service’s citizen-oriented approach.
According to Pedro Herrera, Deputy Regional Justice Minister, The Canary Islands, 2000 was the turning point in the justice department’s approach to new technologies. According to Herrera, throughout the twentieth century the tools and processes used remained virtually unchanged. With the dawn of the new millennium, technology took center stage in the courts – a role that is now being reinforced.
