LocalGov.ie: an experimental portal for users of Local Government services in Ireland
The Local Government Management Agency (LGMA) is a state agency of the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government established in 2012 to provide a range of services to the Local Government Sector.
It provides such services as ICT infrastructure and business support services, staff negotiations, human resources, communications and management services.
Annertech work with the LGMA on an on-going basis, building and continuously integrating websites such as LGMA.ie and LocalGov.ie, and web applications such as the Building Control Management System. LGMA “always found that Annertech’s work was carried out to the highest of standards, with great care put into timings, costs, and deliverables”. They are “delighted to have chosen to work with Annertech”. We're delighted they chose us!
The Portal beta site is the first example (for the whole Local Government sector in Ireland) of what it is possible to achieve with semantic web technologies. The site is set for huge expansion over time as more services and data are added. We are pre-emptively excited!
