Sharing and Reuse of e-Services at a large scale in Spain, challenges ahead

  1. 1. Sharing and Reuse of e-Services at a large scale in Spain, challenges ahead Text of the presentation by Miguel A. Amutio Good morning, Ladies and Gentlemen, I appreciate very much the invitation to speak here today in this ISA2 Sharing and reuse Conference 2017. My talk is about “Sharing and Reuse of e-Services at a large scale in Spain, challenges ahead”. This subject has to do with the recommendation 36 of the new European Interoperability Framework. So, in this presentation we will see why, how, challenges and the way ahead. 1. Sharing Services at a Large Scale, Why Look, the public sector in Spain has a considerable size: the General State Administration, 17 regional governments and 2 autonomous cities, plus over 8,000 municipalities, public universities and other entities under public law. As you can imagine the scenario is quite complex. This means we have to cope with complexity and diversity like in many other countries. There are front runners and those who lag behind, because of unbalanced resources (human resources, technical skills, budget…) 2. Sharing Services at a Large Scale, How So, how to break this gap? How to take as many public bodies as possible to the front line? How to do this by avoiding a long and painful path? 1
  2. 2. Well, through the combination of the following aspects: a bit of legal framework, together with agreements, plus paying attention to certain semantic aspects and taking advantage of the possibilities offered by current technology, and without forgetting security aspects. Legal The main functions or pieces (or links) of the value chain to provide eGovernment services are identified and supported in legal framework. Also the legal framework promotes the reuse; and, in particular, it foresees the adhesion of Public Administrations to the platforms provided by the Central Government. Organizational Agreements have been signed with regional governments on the use of the basic eGovernment services. Local entities adhere to the agreement signed by their corresponding regional government. Also with Public Universities (through their association, CRUE). Semantic Here is a lot to be done, without any doubt. But it has been crucial the coding of ‘administrative objects’ like administrative units and services; as well as the Metadata Schema for electronic Documents. And the specification for the Data Intermediation Platform (for Once Only Principle purpose). Technical The use of cloud services has been a golden opportunity. There is a catalogue of services, many of them available as cloud services. These services support the functions of the value chain mentioned above. And in many cases choices are offered (also depending on the type of service): as cloud service, as web services, local installation, and light client. Security 2
  3. 3. We are promoting the protection of information and services managed by entities of the Spanish Public Sector by means of the National Security Framework, in place since the beginning of 2010. 3. Sharing Services at a Large Scale, challenges Challenges evolve and they don´t remain the same along the time. At the moment the main challenges have to do with the following issues: sustainability, support, conditions of use, quality and security and keeping complexity under control. Sustainability A critical issue now is to sustain the pace of growth: services, entity users, transactions, end users, storage needs… Users ask directly: “Are you going to survive the success?” Support by a large base of different types of users Users with different profiles and that require adequate support. There are two main targets here: o Provide support to developers and integrators. o Also to end users, closer to the user entities. Conditions of use (talking about payment) These common services/platforms are provided for free to public bodies. Although separate agreements for payment when storage is needed have pproach facilitates the extension of the services; and Quality and security services are provided under the conditions included security, so certification of compliance of the been foreseen. At this moment, this a it seems to be less complex than other alternatives. In terms of quality, the in the agreements, best effort basis, but there is growing demand of SLAs by entity users. And it is the same with services with National Security Framework is in the horizon. 3

Surely you have noticed, yes, a wide number of agree burdensome, time consuming, and provides less flexibility than expected: signature, follow-up, renewal… Looking ahead, what is there: conditions of use, adhesion, participation of the Conditions of use of services conditions of use of the portfolio of Adhesion through electronic means ral agreements and evolve to s the electronic adhesion to the eInvoicing private sector, knocking on the door lutions he common sions of interest of private actors to consume our services ing blocks (ISA2 , CEF- private sector, integration in EU building blocks and services, and keep cooperation and alignment.

Thank you very much for your attention Conference, please, follow the presentation by Ms Elena Muñoz on the Technology Transfer Center. For more information about d “Digital Public Services: This is the dimension where Spain is performing best. Spain ranks 6th among EU countries, with a slightly increased score over last year's. Indeed, Spain scores the highest in Open Data and it is one of the EU countries with the highest online interaction between public authorities and citizens. The reason for the good results in Open Data is linked to the law 18/2015 which ensured data re-use and data transparency1 . 40% of Spanish online users actively access eGovernment services.” 1 With support of the Royal Decree 1495/2011 dealing with general Authorisation regime.
