Shared information systems

With developments in technology, information network performance speeds are increasing all the time, the capacity of equipment is growing and the data security risks are rising. The expansion in the opportunities for utilising data means significant improvements in terms of financial and human resources administration. The future will see further uses for information, for example combining data in new ways. The automation of reporting and other information exchange between organisations will become a major growth area.

By the end of 2016, a system of shared processes in financial and HR administration, together with the ICT environment supporting these, will be introduced in central government (the Kieku project 2012–2016). Following this, there will be a need and an opportunity to improve operating efficiency within the government's unified operating environment. From the start of 2017 the ownership of the Kieku information system environment will be transferred to the Finnish Government Shared Services Centre for Finance and HR. Over the next ten years, software robotics (robotic process automation, RPA) will be one of the key innovations enhancing automation and will also facilitate new automated practices in financial and personnel administration processes and information processing. In central government financial and HR administration, there will be an opportunity to lead the field in the adoption of new technology in Finland. This could include making use of new technology suitable for today's architecture and the new technology of the future (RPA, process monitoring and analysis), and developing software robotics capacity by means of networks.

Other central government shared information systems in financial and HR administration include the M2 travel management system, the Rondo invoice processing system, the Tahti personnel data system and the online recruitment system,
