White Paper on a common public-sector digital architecture

Citizens and businesses should experience services that are efficient, coherent, transparent and targeted to their needs. To achieve this, the local, regional and central governments have agreed on a common framework for digital architecture and a coherent IT-infrastructure.

The Digital Strategy for 2016-2020 established that there is a need for common architectural principles and guidelines, which would enable an easy and safe exchange of data between different public organisations. Therefore eight principles and twenty-two architectural rules have been developed and put into the White Paper on a common public-sector digital architecture.

Vision for the common public-sector digital architecture

The digitally coherent public sector

The common architecture for digitisation must ensure secure cross-organisational processes and efficient sharing of data across the public sector and between the public and private sectors.

The goal is that citizens and businesses experience services that are efficient, coherent, transparent and targeted at the individuals’ need, and also provide good conditions for innovation, growth and development in society.

The local, regional and central governments have agreed to establish the common architecture to facilitate digital coherence in the public sector at several levels. Danish citizens and businesses stand to benefit immensely from this agreement and the efforts that have been put in to creating the common architecture.

The White Paper focusses on data sharing and cross-organisational processes.
