The agenda of the seminar will be devoted to discuss ICT project management in European social security organizations, with a more particular attention to countries in transition. At this seminar, relevant ICT realizations, experiences and initiatives in the management of ICT projects will be shared and discussed.
For the period of activities 2008-2010 the ISSA Council has proposed to study ICT as a strategic management tool . The use of ICT to offer new service channels and more holistic sets of services is now well accepted and the demands for faster and more integrated progress are growing everywhere. For countries planning new social security services the cost factors that dictated approaches in earlier years have also changed and exciting new opportunities can be considered for rapid development, especially where the heavy constraints of large legacy systems do not arise. The objectives and nature of social security include a growing need for collaboration between agencies.
The working languages of the Seminar will be English, Azeri and Russian.
