On August 21-22, a joint System Wide Information Management (SWIM) demonstration between LFV and Swedavia related to Arlanda airport was performed by the Swedish SPADS research project which Knowledge Agency provides consulting services to.
The demonstration, to over 70 participants, covered two main operational scenarios related to snow and medical events and one technical scenario which demonstrated the development and implementation of SWIM services.
“We have seen that demonstrations are critical in spreading understanding of the SWIM concept and achieving executive level buy-in and are very proud of the outcome of the SPADS work. Many components are now mature, and it is time to move towards operational use of the SWIM solutions.” – says Niklas Häggström, SPADS lead architect from Knowledge Agency.
Knowledge Agency kommer under hösten 2018 presentera en helt ny utbildning – GO DIGIT – som primärt vänder sig till digitaliseringsansvariga och EA/IT arkitekter inom offentlig förvaltning.
Syftet med utbildningen är att stödja företag och offentlig förvaltning med att etablera gemensamma arbetssätt och processer för att definiera och beskriva interoperabla digitala tjänster för informationsutbyte. Efter genomförd utbildning skall man snabbare kunna komma igång med utvecklingen av digitala tjänster, men också samtidigt få verktyg för samverkan med andra aktörer genom användning av standardiserade tjänster och informationsutbyte.
Utbildningen bygger på lång och beprövad erfarenhet inom informationshantering i den offentliga och privata sektorn såväl som internationellt som nationellt. Knowledge Agency har dokumenterat och förfinat en uppsättning standards och bevisat fungerande koncept, metoder och acceleratorer i en tjänstebaserad verktygslåda för att passa behoven för den offentliga sektorns digitalisering.
