Diia.Engine – a tool for creating and managing registers – presented in the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine

Ukrainians are already used to receiving state services online, quickly and modernly, in particular through Diia. Each such service is made possible by state registries, which are the basis of the digital state.

Until recently, a significant part of the 400 Ukrainian state registers remained technologically outdated, vulnerable to cyber-attacks, or were generally kept on paper. Finally, Ukraine is ready to solve this problem systematically.

What is the Registry Platform?

Recentlt, the Diia.Engine platform was presented, a product of the joint work of the Ministry of Digital Transformation, State Special Communications Agency and SE “Ukrainian Special Systems”, created on the basis of the National Center for Reserving State Information Resources.

It is a tool that will enable public authorities to create and manage registries.

The cost of developing a registry on this platform is twice as low as compared to the usual one. The development period is two to three times shorter.

Who is already working with the Registry Platform?

Currently, 20 ministries and Central Committees use Diia.Engine to create more than 50 registers and more than 100 public services.

During the presentation, the Deputy Prime Minister for Innovation, Development of Education, Science and Technology – Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov, Deputy Minister of Digital Transformation Valeria Ionan, Head of digitalization projects from the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) Yuliya Shappert, Head of the State Intelligence Service Yurii Shchygol, and President of the Eastern Europe Foundation Viktor Liakh spoke about the possibilities of the new platform.

BRDO CEO Oleksii Dorogan spoke about the experience of using the Platform by the BRDO team, successful cases and general impressions of the tool.

What projects does BRDO implement on the Platform of Registers?

  • ePermit is a system of 14 unified registers belonging to the Ministry of Economy. Used by businesses to obtain licenses and permits, submit complaints and declarations.
  • Educational registers are an ecosystem of more than 9 registers that belong to the Ministry of Education and are used by directors of educational institutions, teachers and educators.
  • The registry of domestic animals is a state registry of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food, which is used by state and private veterinary clinics, as well as veterinarians working as private entrepreneurs.

In general, BRDO has experience in implementing 5+ projects based on the Platform. Some of them consist of 2+ registries within the same system, some require complex solutions (creation of public websites for unregistered users, extensive user role model, etc.).

“We have a wide background of using this tool, so we can confidently point out its advantages,” Oleksii noted. “This is a unified lowcode approach to software development; built-in integration tool; a multi-level support system and a unified approach to security; convenient tools for building forms and business processes, etc. I am sure that the active use of Diia.Engine will allow building a truly digital state in Ukraine at an accelerated pace.”

For a significant contribution to the development of projects on Diia.Engine, BRDO was awarded with a commendation as part of the platform presentation.

The registry platform was created with the support of the European Union as part of the EU4DigitalUA project, the Eastern Europe Fund, GIZ Ukraine, and the German government.
