Welcome to eGovernment Switzerland!
New portal for open government data
As of today, the new Swiss portal for open government data (OGD) opendata.swiss is online. It replaces the pilot portal opendata.admin.ch. The Confederation, cantons, communes and other organisations are offering their freely available data centrally on the platform, which is operated by the Federal Archives. The portal is a measure forming part of the Open Government Data Strategy for Switzerland 2014-18.
Thrust of eGovernment cooperation in Switzerland from 2016 defined
In December 2014, the steering committee established which overarching objective the Confederation, the cantons and the communes jointly want to purse from 2016. The members of the steering committee underlined the need for user-oriented further development and optimisation of the administration through eGovernment. In the future, the offering and use of online services should be commonplace and integrated into all aspects of daily life for the administration, businesses and the general public. The objective which should be enshrined in the 2016 eGovernment strategy is thus that eGovernment is a matter of course: fast, transparent and efficient electronic authority services for the population, businesses and the administration.
