Azerbaijan, Baku, April 6 / Trend H.Veliyev /
Ministry of Communications and Information Technologies of Azerbaijan is working on the integration of electronic services provided on e-government portal, the chief consultant of the Information Society development department of the ministry, Etibar Umudov, said.
Launch of the portal will reduce the number of documents requested from citizens due to the fact that different bodies will interact with each other electronically.
He said the state structures use different platforms, and to ensure that they are integrated with each other it's necessary to carry out technical work, install servers, etc.
Work in this direction is planned to be completed in near future, after which the portal will be fully ready for operation.
"Today, the number of state agencies connected to the portal is 16 units and the total number of electronic services provided by them exceeds 60 units. As new services appear their number on the portal will increase," said Umudov.
It is expected that the total number of electronic services to be rendered by agencies of the republic, will be 300.
The 'Electronic Government' portal will be a key tool for supporting work with the population and enterprises in both the public and private sectors.
The X-Road principle was used while creating 'Electronic Government'. It aims to combine the existing databases and systems of state institutions, created on different platforms.
