The Fabasoft egovday on the 5th of October 2023 at Palais Wertheim in Vienna was all about innovation. The event was aimed at everyone interested in the digital transformation of public administration and the latest technologies and trends. For the first time, the event took place in a new format as a full-day event to better support the exchange between federal, state and local governments.
Fabasoft board member Matthias Wodniok opened the event with the presentation of the new eGOV-ecosystem. Based on many years of experience with public administration and the established use of the Fabasoft eGov-Suite in numerous public authorities - especially in Germany, Austria and Switzerland - the vision of a "one shared government reality" has emerged. The eGOV-ecosystem realises this vision through the synergies that the Fabasoft eGov-Suite forms together with the complementary solutions "on Fabasoft eGOV" and a cloud-native technology as the key to innovation and growth. Bastian Drugowitsch, Managing Director of Fabasoft Austria GmbH, discussed the advantages and the interaction of the solutions with the automation of Done! on Fabasoft eGOV, the personnel file Talents on Fabasoft eGOV and the contract management Contracts on Fabasoft eGOV, as well as the use of online services, thus setting the central focus of Fabasoft egovday 2023. In addition, he presented the highlights of current project successes of public authorities together with Fabasoft.
In the morning, the participants could expect concrete reports from current projects as well as information about innovations and features of the Fabasoft eGov-Suite. In the presentation "Successful digital transformation: The decisive role of the Fabasoft eGov-Suite", Stefanie Rytina and Stefan Arnold from Fabasoft covered topics such as encrypted e-mails, digital signatures and search requests. In addition, they went into detail about the drawing client and further developments in procedure handling and Mindbreeze search.
Benedikt Schraik, CTO of the City of Vienna, gave an insight into the current digital offering of the City of Vienna in his presentation "Personal digital government - transformation with ELAK". In addition, Mr Schraik explained the current status of the "ELAK" and the upcoming projects in connection with the Fabasoft eGov-Suite.
Andreas Koch from the Bavarian State Ministry of Finance and Home Affairs presented details of the digital personnel file Talents on Fabasoft eGOV, which is used by the state of Bavaria. The audience was given an informative overview of the project approach and objectives, as well as a summary of the benefits for Bavaria from the digitalisation of personnel files.
Peter Marktl from from the Office of the Federal Government of Carinthia, Katharina-Anna Reitter from EVN, Josef Schnürer from the Office of the Federal Government of Lower Austria and Bastian Drugowitsch from Fabasoft rounded off the morning with a panel discussion. The content covered the acceleration of procedures through digitalisation in companies and organisations.
The afternoon offered six break-out sessions with expert input on individual focal points, from concrete project successes to new trends and technologies for the digital transformation of public administration. The focus was on the Fabasoft eGOV-ecosystem with one presentation each on the solutions Done! on Fabasoft eGOV, Talents on Fabasoft eGOV and Contracts on Fabasoft eGOV. Two further sessions revolved around the topics of cloud-native strategy and citizen-oriented services with the help of online services, which Stefan Haubenwallner from the Office of the Federal Government of Lower Austria illustrated with practical examples from his authority. In addition, Fabasoft, in cooperation with Oliver Lindlbauer and Jasmin Sprenkelder from Sourcing International, facilitated a workshop to strengthen the exchange of public authorities in the eGOV community. The presentations by Fabasoft and the experts from the public administration showed the synergies offered by the Fabasoft eGOV-ecosystem and highlighted the benefits of joint digital public administration work.
