Governments at all levels provide a great number of critical and useful services to the societies, companies, and individuals they serve. These services cover a wide range of areas, including health care, critical infrastructure such as roads and bridges, emergency services, and so on.
The challenges start with the fact that each government department is responsible for what it provides, and each maintains its own systems and databases of information. Moving down through successive levels of government, from federal to provincial to municipal, information gets more fine grained and more localized with every level.
Data that has the same structure is easiest to share, but registries can include transformations that convert data from one structure to another or to an agreed on shared structure.
Registries are one way to pull critical information together into a centralized system without requiring changes to be made to the source systems or sharing details that need to be kept private.
Not all information from every government department needs to be shared with every other department, but sharing some of the critical information between departments and services can be very useful. Life cycle management, audit trails, access controls, and other governance and security structures are ways that registries can maintain the security and integrity between systems sharing data.
Galdos Registies for Master Data and Citizen Services
Galdos Systems developed the INdicio™ Registry as a new kind of information management solution that can be used to quickly build and deploy registries. Government services registries, and registries of citizen services, make these services easier to find and more readily available for anyone who needs them.
In Transportation, data accumulated over years of infrastructure development and maintenance drove the development of a common structure so that data could be shared and reused. Once data is in a common structure, registries and tools can be created to work with it more efficiently and cost-effectively.
Infrastructure information can be shared to facilitate managing Urban Development, including road maintenance, waste management, and other related services. Intelligent Cities take this a step further by integrating technology to improve quality of life and long-term sustainability.
Resource information can be shared with first responder agencies in Emergency Management situations across urban and rural district boundaries so that everyone has the same information and a common view.
GeoPortals are a specific class of registries that take full advantage of geospatial data properties and maps. Maps can be used as the basis for searching datasets to find those that pertain to a specific geographic area. Maps can also be used to display the layers of information contained in the datasets in a meaningful manner.
