E-government
Estonia has transformed itself into one of Europe’s business success stories of the last decade, mainly thanks to the sophisticated e-solutions available here. “e-Estonia” is a term commonly used to describe Estonia’s emergence as one of the most advanced e-societies in the world – an incredible success story that grew out of a partnership between a forward-thinking government, a pro-active ICT sector and a switched-on, tech-savvy population (source: e-estonia.com).

We are proud to belong into Estonian ICT society and take part in creating e-Estonia. We implement solutions that will fulfill your needs and requirements from the idea and preliminary analysis to the deployment and management of the implemented system. We enjoy solving complicated tasks, which present different challenges for the whole development team and which can be looked back on after implementation with pride and satisfaction.

Our portfolio includes the following types of services


Infrastructure of the e-government

Whether creating business-to-business or government-to-business solutions, these solutions rely on infrastructure like the X-Road and eID. Our team has long-term experience in developing the infrastructure components necessary for the functioning of the e-estonia. We have developed public key infrastructure (PKI) components (authenticating and signing with the ID-card/Mobile-ID on both computer and mobile platforms, Europe-wide eID solution STORK, control applications of e-voting), X-Road data exchange layer services, and infrastructure components of document exchange centre (DEC).

The infrastructure components are the foundation of the e-government. Our focus here is primarily on stability, usability and reliability, where no compromises can be made on quality. Openness, universality, independence from technical platforms, and standardisation are all very important parameters when it comes to the solutions we create.

Governmental registers and databases

When it comes to the systems, registers and databases necessary for the functioning of the e-government, the business needs and work processes of the public sector and possible technical solutions that support them are in the focus of the development work. At the same time, we are happily contributing our past experience to make the patterns of functioning and business processes of the sector more transparent, clearer and efficient.

Developing an existing or a new system does not only mean transcribing a solution from the paper-world into the digital environment for us. We are guided by the principle that by involving ICT, the concept of the whole field of activity must, as a rule, be looked over with a fresh pair of eyes and thought through. Technology does offer many new opportunities, but also brings with it new obligations, risks and dangers, which must be taken into account already while planning the system.

E-services and self-service environments

Developing comfortable and ingenious business-to-business or government-to-business e-services and self-service environments targeted at the citizens and residents of the country is the most visible and important part of the e-government, in which Finestmedia team has enthusiastically participated.

We create user-friendly and value-adding solutions, which use opportunities offered by technology, help discover new possibilities, and raise the effectiveness of the public sector, in collaboration with our clients in the public sector. Self-service environments enable to facilitate the use of public sector e-services more and more and, through this, automate work processes and simplify the dealings with the state. We enjoy challenges, which derive from devising and creating new exciting solutions.

PUBLIC SECTOR DEPARTMENT MANAGER
I have formerly been, for years, in the role of the client as an employee in the public sector as well as in the role of the systems developer as an employee in the private sector. My whole professional career to date has one way or the other been connected to the ICT field of the public sector. I am primarily attracted to the versatility of the tasks in the sector, always giving an opportunity to learn and experience something new. The whole team’s satisfaction deriving from the completion of something important motivates me again and again.
