Designing a Governmental Backbone
The presentation is about the design of the backbone of the Estonian governmental information systems - X-Road. The system is already ten years old and has proven to be useful and reliable. The presentation describes the vision of the system, the requirements analysis process and the technical design decisions. The vision was to create a web-services based unified access to all governmental registries. The requirements analysis was guided by the existing legislation and organizational setup of the government. The technical design was pragmatic and based on some unorthodox solutions.
