The Business Register (BR) is one of four basic registers within the System of Basic Registers of the Czech Republic and it is maintained by the Czech Statistical Office (CZSO). The Business Register deals with the registration of legal entities and their organizational units, people who do business, foreign companies and their organizational entities, organizations with international affiliates, and government departments.
The goal of the project was to build the entire infrastructure of the newly emerging information system, fill it with relevant data, verify the data, run pilot operations and put the BR into full operation. The delivery also included an Integrated Agenda Information System BR (IAIS-BR) – a central web solution maintained by the CZSO – which provides a tool for inserting and editing business entities and for changing reference data without the need of an agenda to create or modify its own information system. As a whole, the project establishes the processes of end-user support, system maintenance and data actualization.
Building the system of Basic Registers of the Czech Republic required the close cooperation and coordination of activities of 4 project authorities (the Ministry of Interior of the C.R., the Czech Statistical Office, the State Administration of Land Surveying and Cadaster, the Office for Personal Data Protection) and 6 suppliers.
The BR is amongst the largest IT projects ever realized in the Czech market. Its size bears witness to its:
To be the system integrator of such an immense project is testimony of Adastra’s credibility.
The project delivery incorporated numerous phases and Adastra’s task was to coordinate all steps of the delivery such as:
We successfully completed the BR project for the CZSO and our involvement
continues to this day as Adastra oversees the maintenance and development of
this information system. Full operations of the Basic Registers system commenced
on July 1, 2012. The System of Basic Registers by Adastra and cooperating
vendors was named the “IT Project of the Year
for 2012” by the Czech Association of CIOs (CACIO).
The Business Register (BR) boasts significant benefits for citizens and businesses. Thanks to the BR, they only need to report references or changes in public administration once. The authorities in question
exchange the data amongst themselves and use the data amongst themselves and use the data without having to repeat the process of substantiation. The BR acts as a unified structure focusing information on all business entities from administrative agenda information systems into a single information system, thus eliminating fragmentation in the provision of information concerning individuals. The project is characterized by high accessibility and the thorough monitoring of the quality and safety of the implemented solutions, including all aspects of privacy.
