Transitioning the citizen services completely open source - utilizing Java. Migrating and restructuring existing services and departments into a single cohesive scalable resource for delivering online information for services such as, vehicle information, civil service, judicial and anything else a government entity will require. A complete SOA restructuring of disparate systems, languages and services built on proprietary systems, integration of non standards compliant web services, databases, regionally distributed system while increasing uptime, scalability, response time and management of a single master data source.
This session presents a case study of a complete transition of citizen services to an open source platform, combining NoSQL, Camel, SOA techniques, and proven Java EE technologies. It shows how a scalable, distributed, secure system was built with modular rapid development techniques. The system integrates disparate proprietary and legacy systems into a fast, modern open source solution and puts the information necessary from each government entity into the hands of the citizens.
