Governikus KG set another record for attendance at this year's annual conference at the dbb forum in Berlin. More than 370 visitors, guests and exhibitors took advantage of the two-day event at the end of February under the motto "Digital administration - shaping the future together" to find out about current topics relating to the digitization of administration and justice. The importance of such an event is also emphasized by the CIO of the Federal Government, State Secretary Klaus Vitt: "We have set ourselves a lot of goals in the digitization of administration. And I think it's important to use an event like this to discuss the various aspects of digitization, problems, challenges and, above all, solutions."

And so the most important future topics for the digitization of administration were discussed in almost 40 panel discussions, interviews and presentations. One of the highlights of the event: the entertaining and controversial panel discussion with the Chairman of the Standards Control Council, Dr. Johannes Ludewig, Bremen's CIO and Chairman of the IT Planning Council, State Councilor Hans-Henning Lühr, Prof. Dr. Peter Parycek, Head of ÖFIT and member of the Digital Council, and the CIO of the Federal Government, State Secretary Klaus Vitt.

There was a particular need for discussion on the focus topic of the Online Access Act and its implementation. A live survey showed that more than 60 percent of visitors doubted that only half of the 575 business transactions envisaged would be online by the end of 2022. State Secretary Klaus Vitt, Dr. Jens Bender of the BSI and Ministerialrat Matthias Taube of the BMI, as well as Dr. Dirk Woywod and Peter Eisenhofer, the managing directors of VERIMI and YES, respectively, countered this with unanimous optimism during their panel discussions. At the same time, they spoke not only about the progress made on OZG, but also looked ahead to the future of electronic identities in Germany and Europe.

Other focus topics included the IT Planning Council and FITKO, register modernization, e-billing, electronic legal transactions, and cooperation between eGovernment and online banking.

The following partners were also present: bol Systemhaus, brain-SCC GmbH, Ceyoniq, codia Software GmbH, Computacenter, Dataport, Fabasoft, Form Solutions, Frankenraster, ibml, inovoo, Lava Unternehmensberatung, Materna, NetApp, OpenText, Optimal Systems, PDV GmbH, Red Hat, Rubicon, Westernacher Solutions, Zertificon.
