Review of the Fabasoft egovday 2018 - Bern

Sunshine and mild temperatures accompanied the participants of the Fabasoft egovday on their journey to the event.

The first presentation was held by Dr. Christian Folini, historian, security adviser and author. He pointed out several interesting parallels between the defence structures of medieval castles and cyber defence.

Fabasoft’s Stefan Arnold then gave an overview of the new features and further developments that have been introduced in the Fabasoft eGov-Suite. He was followed by Christoph Rindlisbacher from the Security Directorate Basel-Landschaft who illustrated how his office has been using the Fabasoft eGov-Suite within the framework of its modernisation and digitisation strategy. Rindlisbacher also spoke about the positive effects on usability, look & feel as well as features in connection with the further development of the Fabasoft eGov-Suite. One of the examples he mentioned was that traditional trainings were now no longer necessary. Users also appreciate the searching and filtering possibilities provided by the integrated product Mindbreeze Enterprise. Laurenz Räber, Head of IT Applications, Cantonal Informatics Department of Thurgau, gave an overview of the new functions that will be available to users after an upgrade. The Cantonal Informatics Department of Thurgau is servicing all departments of the canton’s public administration as well as further public bodies in terms of IT services. The canton’s administration has been using the Fabasoft eGov-Suite as its central document storage system and for the canton-wide support of its main administrative processes since the year 2006. The two speakers agreed: The Fabasoft eGov-Suite is providing a modern working environment with a multitude of functions that are well received by users.

After a break that was used for networking, Andreas Dangl talked about EU-GDPR (link is external) that will take effect on May 25, 2018, and presented existing tools to comply with the regulation. Under certain conditions, Swiss businesses also have to adhere to EU-GDPR.

In the final presentation of the event, Klemens Berger showed how easy it can be to classify incoming mail with Mindbreeze InSpire or to manage digital personnel files (personnel dossiers) with the Fabasoft Personnel File.
