GovStack is a digital solution designed to support a new model of development, based on the interconnected ecosystem of universal reusable components called building blocks. It aims to solve the problems of interoperability, doubled work, and low scalability, often encountered by government agencies on their journey towards digital transformation.
The solution is developed by a collaborative group of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), the Government of Estonia, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), and the Digital Impact Alliance.
Identification and verification
Speed of delivery
Governments can provide digital services faster, since they have access to reusable interchangeable components of which new platforms can be built.
GovStack solutions are based on open-source, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS), or freely available software, meaning that they can be used and developed with low cost or free of charge.
GovStack building blocks are designed to meet the needs of government institutions and their complex workflows.
Since government digital operations are most often involving sensitive data, GovStack offers tools dedicated to providing a high security level.
Open-source based solutions are highly customizable, and can be quickly adjusted to unexpected circumstances, such as the global pandemic.
Improving user experience and solution accessibility is reflected in the increased citizen engagement and satisfaction.
Our role and the team
SolDevelo has been involved in the GovStack project since the end of November, 2023. We’ve formed a team that is responsible for testing API specification for all the building blocks. We’re also developing a testing platform, which is used to show how candidate products align with the technical specifications that have been developed by GovStack for various building blocks. To offer further support, our team is actively taking part in the GovStack Technical Committee, where we’re providing guidance and helping with making technical decisions.
