New ISA Collaborative Platform set for launch
The OSOR.eu and SEMIC.eu portals will merge soon into the new ISA Collaborative Platform – www.joinup.eu – to offer users a single integrated platform with an enhanced range of value-added services.
Joinup will provide more and better features and functionalities and has been designed and built using the latest tools and techniques. The future development of the integrated Platform will be more focused, efficient and cost-effective – enabling its users to easily and efficiently meet, share, learn and work together.
The Platform is designed to provide state-of-the-art communication, network and collaboration tools to public administrations, policymakers, developers and experts involved in the interoperability of public information systems. It will also help improve communication and collaboration on common projects through, for example, the sharing of ideas, code and implementations between public administrations.
In addition, the Platform will offer a wider range of features and greater interaction between the various communities, alongside the services current users are familiar with. Merging the portals will provide instant and seamless access to the content of the other portals which, in many cases, overlaps with current users’ areas of interest.
A well-planned migration strategy will ensure that all content and features will be transferred to the new ISA Collaborative Platform. To access the new service, users will simply have to renew their current passwords.
