Plone as a tool to build up e-goverment platforms: a successful story from Italian local authorities

John Cleese Room

Talk details

Language: English
Level: Basic

In this talk I'll show how Plone-Plomino has been successfully applied to the development of a complete and integrated e-services platform in Italy. Covering many services, including transport, new business creation, tourism, environment and many others, IstanzeOnline is an e-goverment platform that includes advanced geo-referencing and gis-analysing tools. IstanzeOnline has already been presented to the PloneGov Italian community generating very positive feedback and much interest.

Plone is used widely as CMS by governments round the world, meeting most of their requirements, especially in terms of accessibility. In the presentation I'll focus on how Plone-Plomino can become an extraordinarily powerful e-governemnt application builder. Offering in the same platform both user and administrator interfaces, IstanzeOnline works as a complete suite of components, easy to use for citizens and suitable to support public authorities in coping with the digitalising of services and procedures.

The Plone-Plomino based e-services platform has been built up with the technical support of Makina Corpus, the software company who develop and mantain the Plomino code.
