  • 3. NATIONAL IT- AND TELECOM AGENCY
    • Standardisation
    • Standardisation is important because it will:
    • Secure interoperability
    • Improve the incentive for innovation in accessible ICT solutions and AT, as the suppliers will not have to bare the burden of complying with a variety of different national requirements and regulation.
    • Make it easier for buyers to control a product up against a standard
    • Help to provide an equal level of accessibility across Europe
  • 4. NATIONAL IT- AND TELECOM AGENCY
    • Cloud Computing
    • Cloud computing is web based processing, whereby shared resources, software and information are provided to computers on demand over the internet. Done the proper way it is:
    • Cheaper
      • Customises products on a Large-scale production
      • Only have to pay for your actual use.
    • Easier
      • Less IT competencies are needed internal in the company because it is now the supplier who has the expertise
      • No update, new firewalls, patching etc
    • Faster
      • Start servers immediately and hence no waiting for new hardware to be bought and set up.
    • More flexible
      • Start and stop when you want
      • Scale up and down the capacity
      • Search cloud application where ever you are – only an internet connection is needed. Therefore AT in the cloud is a big advantage for users with impairment.
  • 5. NATIONAL IT- AND TELECOM AGENCY
    • Open Source
    • Applied properly, open source can contribute to:
    • Distribution and development of software on free terms, including AT
    • Promotion of IT-businesses to offer services in relation to software and to develop new IT-products
    • Collaboration on creating interoperable IT-systems
    • Collaboration and developing of it-systems across public sector institutions and indeed borders
  • 6. NATIONAL IT- AND TELECOM AGENCY
    • Public Key Actors:
    • Most of the leading public bodies across borders are rooted in groups or projects supported by the European Commission. E.g:
    • Standardisation: Mandate 376 and UWEM
    • Open Source: [pending]
    • Cloud: Strategi announced in the digital agenda
    • However, there is certain public key actors on national level who is important to target in the matter of disseminating the knowledge of assessibility in AT and ICT.
    • Procurement: Public procurement organisations on different levels (Governmental and municipal)
    • Distribution Reach frontworkers: e.g. communications centers, educational centers, Telecentre Europe, etc.
  • 7. NATIONAL IT- AND TELECOM AGENCY
    • Challenge: Economi/Affordability
    • Depression forces the public bodies to focus on cost reduction through technologi or in stimulation of cheaper it-solutions and AT products in itself.
    • This gives further attention to the areas already mentioned.
    • In this respect one of the biggest challenges from a public bodies point of view is how to convince the public and private bodies in the business case and model of accessibility in ICT and AT.
