Three years of rapid growth have brought Information Society to the forefront of the digital transformation of Greece with emblematic projects that have helped to improve the daily lives of citizens, that is, all of us. Projects such as Freedom Pass, Power Pass, Digital Care, 112, the Digital Museum of Acropolis have been added to a number of important projects that we have implemented in our 20-year course, such as Sizefxis I, Taxisnet, Pothen Esches, Diavgeia, Kallikratis, Police on line, “I participate in Information Society”, the actions of e-services, etc.
In the new page of our company, which commenced three years ago, the assignment and implementation of projects and actions were accelerated, while at the same time critical digital transformation needs due to the pandemic period were addressed.
This newsletter aspires to become a communication channel for our actions and plans.
We, Information Society, are the executive support arm for the implementation of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) projects in the public sector, as well as state aid actions in ICT. Over the past years, we have concluded more than 70 programme agreements worth over 2.5 billion Euros. We have an open channel of communication with the Ministry of Digital Governance, the Public Administration Bodies and the market having as main partners IT and telecommunications companies, in order to achieve the optimal implementation of the projects of the Digital Transformation Bible and Recovery Fund. In particular, the Recovery Fund gives a big boost to digital projects, as its interventions touch a broad framework of action for the digital transformation of public administration.
Through our work, we are convinced that this digital transformation is something that concerns everyone and in the same way.
We participate institutionally in the specialization of the digital strategy of the country, we implement ICT projects financed by the EU Structural and Investment Funds (NSRF), the Public Investment Program, the Recovery Fund or through Public Private Partnerships and we support the identification of needs in ICT projects.
At the same time, we provide specialized support to bodies throughout the life cycle of ICT projects that we have been called upon to implement. As it is easily understood, our actions touch almost every aspect of the relationship between citizens and businesses with the State.
In the near future, where, based on our planning, we will proceed with the announcement of 63 projects with a total budget of 1.4 billion Euros, we will trigger the digital transformation of each process in key areas such as Health, Justice, Entrepreneurship, Tourism, Shipping, the Primary Sector and the Public Administration.
Usually the projects are impressive in terms of their number and budget, but they are not implemented without the equally important element of Information Society being its human resources. From a small unit of 60 people, in recent years Information Society has developed and evolved into an organization with 200 highly qualified associates, from whom a very large number of applications and services that are now part of the everyday life of citizens and undertakings went through.
