REPORT FROM ERNACT E
has compiled a list of questions we would like addressed at the Lisbon
meeting on 14 and 15
May. I have also included our
responses in relation to Synthesis
Questions from ERNACT:
would also like the following questions addressed at the meeting on 15
What will be the outputs to partners from the SIS development?
When will the platform be ready for partners to test in their own regions, as
ERNACT would like to start planning
demos within our region?
We would like to
assess the platform by the end
June in order to test it and set up demo’s. Will
this be possible?
How will EDISOFT manage the handover of SIS platform to the SMITA partners.
Will there be an implementation an
d testing phase?
Is the platform development progressing according to schedule? Are there any
foreseen delays in development?
Will EDISOFT carry out training with each region when the system is complete?
Will we be able to receive a full copy of this syst
em to install on our region’s
ERNACT find the Communication structure inflexible and does not allow regions to
contact EDISOFT directly with technical questions.
ERNACT responses to Synthesis document:
Investigating the local use of the SMIT
A back office through Drupal before
the meeting in Lisbon.
The 2 content databases ERNACT are connecting to the SIS are:
Public Service Bus
The database schemas for both these databases have already been sent to EDISOFT.
Both of these
databases already have a content management system developed to upload
information into them. For DonegalDirect, tourism users are trained in using this
content management system to upload their tourism information. As a result, ERNACT
will not require D
RUPAL for this purpose.
However, we would still like a version of DRUPAL incase we would use it in the future
for other new databases.
Report on the content and map DB foreseen to be implemented with the SIS
in Ireland. This document should be done in
accordance with the external
company subcontracted for the regional implementation of the SIS.
ERNACT has already supplied the database schemas for the content databases to be
used by our region on the SIS.
For mapping, we will use Donegal County Counc
il’s mapping system.
Select a Telecom operator partner for Ireland and provide Edisoft with the
technical specification for their messaging solution
We have not yet selected a Telecom operator partner for Ireland but it will most likely
be Vodafone, w
ho are currently ERNACT and Donegal County Council’s Telecom
provider for mobile phones, etc.
Contact Edisoft to progress on the specification for the Webservice
I have emailed EDISOFT and have not received any response from them. I woul
this item to be included in the agenda of our meeting so we can get specification for the
webservices in our region.
Contact Bob to be assessed on the technical issues.
Caitriona contacted Bob on 10
May 2007 to discuss technical issues but Bob w
unaware of status of SIS development.
