The BRZ operates the largest e-government data center in Austria. Security, quality and cost efficiency are important success factors. A high-level delegation led by the Vice Minister of Finance of Georgia took a visit to learn from the BRZ know-how.

The Georgian government is planning to build a data center. In order to overcome the inevitable challenges, the responsible authorities want to learn from the experiences and best practices of other European governments.

BRZ employees gave the Georgian delegation an overview of the company and its status within the Austrian administration. Particular interest was shown in the management and organization of the data center as well as on its security strategy and the numerous certifications that ensure the protection of sensitive data. They also focused on the legal corporate structure and the organizational environment of the BRZ. The delegation was introduced to a variety of e-government services such as Portal Services, ELAK (electronic file recording system) and various storage solutions.

Their stay led to stimulating discussions with our experts on concepts, implementations and challenges in IT management. A possible cooperation in the near future is under discussion.
