Main Challenges

The national agency in charge of the digital transformation of public services develops the central citizen portal. As a measure to increase the speed and efficiency of administrative operations, the agency decided to streamline online form submission and processing by integrating AEM Forms into the eGovernment system.

AEM Forms in a Multi-Vendor Ecosystem

The agency had to build a new form management platform and connect it to a dozen software systems operating under the hood of eGovernment. This initiative required a thoughtful approach to using XML transformations during the data exchange.

Solution for Pixel-Perfect PDF Generation

The agency had to find a way to create pixel-perfect PDF templates and attach them to specific forms for subsequent dynamic content and data generation on the citizen portal.

Support Unified Form Package Generation

The forms generated in AEM had to pass a specific validation and registration process in the central document management system of the government.

Integrate with a Custom Identity Provider

It was required to introduce rigorous security protocols to help citizens securely submit their data through online forms. An integration with the government’s Identity Provider for SSO was needed for a seamless user identification on the portal.

Custom Solution

AEM developers from Axamit have built a form management solution using extensive out-of-the-box capabilities of AEM Forms. The solution was built to handle hundreds of form types. It allowed both the creation of digital forms from scratch and the import of old forms from legacy systems.
