If not already a known concern before, the Covid pandemic made it obvious: to maintain its market competitiveness, Germany must accelerate its efforts to digitize its public sector! However, while citizens and companies expect administration and authorities to act with agility and efficiency powered by digital processes, bureaucracy and process complexity have put hurdles in place which prevent society from evolving at a required pace. With its Online Access Act (Onlinezugangsgesetz, OZG), legislation mandated federal, state, and municipality institutions in Germany to optimize online accessibility to their service portfolio by end of 2022. It exemplifies that pursuing digitalization would present Germany with new opportunities to keep its status as a world economic power nation along with increased resilience to potential future crises.
Natuvion is well-positioned to guide and support public entities on their journey to become the effective, fully digital administration. In the past, our transformation experts have found themselves at the center of legal requirements, innovation pressure, and customer service. Managing those challenges for businesses in the public sector are similar to those that we have experienced when serving energy companies.
At the same time, our teams have demonstrated their broad functional and technical expertise in many transformation projects, making Natuvion the go-to consultancy for process and system transformation needs. Komm.ONE is a German state public institution providing IT and technology services to the state’s various municipalities.

Public institutions often run large IT systems with considerable amounts of data. Although widely recognized that staying on top of your data makes a significant difference, many organizations still struggle with managing their data.
To address the data challenge, Natuvion has developed tools and methods. With the help of the analysis platform Natuvion SOPHIA, we gain detailed system insight, identify duplicates, and initiate necessary steps for data cleansing. Increased data quality is not only a crucial prerequisite for a successful transformation project, but it also creates the basis to continuously ensure high data quality.
Public administration personnel handle personal data on a daily basis. Therefore, all related activities and processing of such data must be in full compliance with GDPR to ensure data protection.
At Natuvion, we excel in implementing data protection and compliance regulations as part of our core business. Whether it concerns the anonymization or pseudonymization of personal data, or the introduction of a sustainable data protection compliant information lifecycle management system, you can count on our extensive experience. We leverage powerful tools that support us during the implementation of GDPR requirements while accelerating phases and delivering best compliance results.
