The performance of the Information System and management services will be constantly measured and monitored.
Selex ES has extensive experience in developing applications for the automation and streamlining of business processes; institutional sites, internet and intranet portals re-engineering projects; and e-government services and solutions. Some important achievements in Italy are: the INPS (Istituto Nazionale della Previdenza Sociale) portal for on-line services to citizens and workers; the “Processo Civile Telematico” project for the Ministry of Justice; the CONSIP portal for the Ministry of Economy and Finance; the UIRNET system for the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transports; the portal for the fight against pedophilia for the Department of Equal Opportunities; and the portal for the City of Rome citizens.
Building on its proven track record developing information systems in the areas of Justice, Economics and Welfare for the Public Administration, the technological capabilities of Selex ES, together with a deep knowledge of administrative processes, now extend to improving the efficiency of Education and Research organizations, both central and local. These are strategic areas essential for the economic recovery and digital development of the country.
