A digital Finland is built on secure data exchange

The Finnish Digital and Population Data Services Agency governs the Data Exchange Layer that enables smooth data flow between authorities, businesses, and organizations. This translates to streamlined services and reduced data request needs for Finnish citizens.

The goal was to increase security and standards for Finnish IT infrastructure. The Finnish society had already undergone a significant digital transformation in the early 2010s. However, there were still challenges with interconnecting different systems, which was largely done with point-to-point connections. To standardize integrations, the decision was made to implement a national data exchange layer that would introduce a streamlined and secure approach for transmitting data between both public and private organizations.

The Data Exchange Layer was Gofore’s first major project with the Finnish Digital Agency. The smooth and close-knit collaboration has since expanded into other areas.
