SunGard Announces Availability of ONESolution
New Enterprise-Wide Product Suite for Local Government Utilizes Microsoft®.NET and Service-Oriented Architecture for Interoperability
LAKE MARY, Fla.- SunGard Public Sector kicked off its annual local government international user group meeting with the news that ONESolution, its new suite of ERP, community development, and public safety and justice products, is now available. ONESolution also includes a consolidated national citizen services ePortal.
“We are at a critical moment for our industry, a time for innovation and evolution,” said Tom Huber, president of SunGard Public Sector’s local government business unit. “We have applied nearly thirty years of experience in the local government and not-for-profit technology space toward our latest suite, ONESolution. Built from the ground up in Microsoft .NET and leveraging the latest service-oriented architecture and windows presentation framework for enhanced usability, efficiency and integration, ONESolution is designed to help our customers do more with less.”
The SunGard Public Sector International Users’ Group is a premier annual event for users of SunGard Public Sector software, providing training and information sessions, as well as previews of upcoming products. ONESolution was featured as part of the event’s opening session, including a live proof-of-concept demo using Microsoft’s Surface gesture-driven user interface and Apple’s iPad.
The new Microsoft .NET solutions are built on a service-oriented architecture (SOA), a framework for designing software applications that emphasizes shared processes and flexibility to allow faster response to changing customer needs. SOA allows for interoperability and integration, not only with existing SunGard Public Sector products, but also with customers’ in-house or third party systems. Additionally, the new solutions provide a role-based common user interface and secure single sign-on designed to support the needs of specific mobile and office-based staff within each department.
The national citizen services ePortal is designed to consolidate online government information and payment services into a single site and to operate across SunGard Public Sector’s customer jurisdictions through a series of interlinked local portals. IBM’s Websphere Portal Express 6.1 provides the framework for the Java-based ePortal solution. This IBM portal is designed to securely combine information from both the enterprise and the Web.
