]init[ AG Modernizes destatis.de
The design and technology of www.destatis.de, the Federal Statistical Office`s central information platform, have been comprehensively refreshed. With its new and modern internet presence, the Federal Office targets users interested in statistical reports more specifically and clearly.
With the migration of the CMS to Government Site Builder 4.1. (GBS), the e-government service-provider ]init[ AG for Digital Communication created the basis for the restructuring and the accessibility (according to BITV) of the portal. Special attention has been paid to a faceted navigation. The SOLr-Nutch search framework integrated by ]init[ has individual filters and provides more clarity and comfort when browsing comprehensive documents. Furthermore, strict load and security standards have been observed when setting up the GSB system.
Doris Stärk, Destatis manager of the publications-group: ”The demand for topical and reliable information through official statistics is constantly growing – on the part of politics, public authorities, economy, media, and citizens. Thanks to competent support, the successful modernization of our internet presence improves the accessibility of our comprehensive internet services and sustainably boosts our reputation as a modern information service-provider.”.
Maik Farthmann, ]init[ executive director: “We are proud to have revised one of the Federal government’s most far reaching information portals. Through the migration to the latest GSB version we are able to give a long-term guarantee for the maintainability and the updateability of the portal. Furthermore, its multi-client capability is the basis of two subsequent projects: the revision of the web-based information system Destatis-Intranet and network statistics (StaNet.)”.
