A single multi-purpose SOA platform that delivers environmental permissions services through the cloud of e-Government services and applications

eEnviPer is an integrated web-based platform for the application, administration and consultation of environmental permits. By making the environmental permits process more transparent, accessible and efficient, eEnviPer helps to reduce the environmental impact of economic activities through the environmental permits process in a cost-effective manner.

n 2012-2014, eEnviPer set-up and tested its existing multi-purpose cloud platform in five pilot communities, supported by the European Commission’s ICT Policy Support Programme.

In 2012, eEnviPer prepared the ground for the launch of the pilot tests in the five pilots. The integration and customisation began with a thorough evaluation of the current situation in each pilot project.

On this basis, the project defined a set of thirteen use cases and/or common procedures that the integrated software platform would need to deliver on. Pilots also modelled the workflows for their own customised installation. At the same time, a detailed Pilot Implementation Plan was drawn up to determine the timelines, tasks and responsibilities for the test phase.

In February 2013, eEnviPer’s technical team presented the customised platforms for each pilot. Subsequently, pilot partners localised and translated the software and started to train internal stakeholders in its use.
