Il primo dei quattro fondamentali domini dell’information security è rappresentato dalla governance, vale a dire la creazione, da parte del senior management, di una strategia preordinata alla individuazione di un framework di policy per la protezione del patrimonio informativo aziendale. In tale prospettiva, la governance presuppone un forte commitment del senior management verso il modello di information security strategicamente individuato e, al tempo stesso, l’adozione del modello richiede per la sua efficacia ed efficienza un requisito essenziale, ossia l’allineamento agli obiettivi di business.
SCALES “Supply Chain Architecture Leading to Enhanced Services” (Action No: 2018-IT-IA-0053) is a project funded by the European Commission through the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) programme. AgID coordinates a group of Italian institutions and private partner (Politecnico di Milano, UNINFO, InfoCert and DAFNE), which has been awarded funding for the project under the CEF Telecom Call - eInvoicing (CEF-TC-2018-2).
The main objective of the project is to consolidate the national eInvoicing system with a strong focus on innovation. It will study and implement a new services-oriented architecture based on DLT/blockchain and distributed repositories, aimed at processing, in a cost-effective way, large volumes of electronic invoices and other relevant documents, and integrate eInvoicing with eProcurement and other systems/services used in the post-award phase.
More specifically, the action will encompass the following objectives:
- Analysis, design and implementation of a new service-oriented architecture to be adopted by the public procurement systems involved in the post-award process, especially focused on the evolution of the architectural model now implemented by SDI. The outcome will be to move from an architecture based on a centralised registry and repository to an architecture based on distributed registries and repositories
- Implementation and enhancement of services targeting SMEs for a complete adoption of the EN and its ancillary deliverables with a specific focus on the digital transformation of the post-award in B2G, B2B and B2C contexts
- Integration of eInvoicing functionalities into existing eProcurement platforms scaling up the results achieved in previous actions eIGOR (2015-EU-IA-0050) and EeISI (2017-IT-IA-0150) with a specific focus on the digital transformation of the post-award and based on the abovementioned service-oriented architecture instead of on the current centralized, SDI-based architecture
- Analysis, design and implementation of an innovative supply chain services framework based on cutting-edge technologies and distributed electronic registries
- Dissemination and exploitation activities to facilitate and promote a further adoption of EN 16931 invoices in cross-border and domestic contexts in both public and private business domains.
The project also entails a close coordination with the standardization activities already ongoing within the EU technical committees and reference communities for electronic invoicing and eProcurement.
