The Greek Interoperability Center

Pavlina Fragkou


In this paper we present the Greek Interoperability Center (GIC), which constitutes a common and uniform framework for web services hosting and use. Those web services are either implemented by Ministry of Finance or other Ministries (web service clients). The aim of GIC is to act as a hub for the exchange of business/operational data between Public Sector Agencies but also to establish a uniform way to implement web services (and clients) in terms of security and web service implementation techniques. This was accomplished by implementing an Enterprise Service Bus as well as a number of "horizontal" functionalities named Common Implementation Framework.
