Die URN:Technology ist der intelligente Verlinkungsmotor im Guichet Virtuel, dem offiziellen Portal zur öffentlichen Verwaltung der Schweiz.
Vortrag an der Konferenz EGOV 2003 - 2nd International Conference on eGovernment, Prag, 1. bis 5. September 2003.
In the year 2003 the administration portal for Switzerland, the Virtual Desk www.ch.ch, went live. This portal is based on a powerful meta-database of all available resources and services of the federation, the cantons and the districts and allocates a unique name, the URN (Uniform Resource Name), to every resource. The URN:Technology, adapted to the requirements of www.ch.ch, became an open standard and a building block of the Swiss e-government platform. This article highlights the URN:Technology and shows how portals in powerful and established federal structures benefit from this innovation. URN:Technology represents nowadays a key factor in the success of building and operating large portals with split responsibility for the content and interlinking. The present meta-database of URN:Technology, already similar to UDDI, can be developed with the help of web services into a registry with UDDI conformity.
