Västra Götalandsregionen (VGR) employs 55,000 staff and is responsible for Healthcare, Culture, Public Transport, Growth, and Sustainable Development in Västra Götaland. Swedwise contributes strategic and organisational work that will enable VGR to embrace bimodal IT.
Västra Götalandsregionen (VGR) faces the challenge to accelerate digitisation in parallel with traditional system integration and management. This requires adapting its infrastructure into an organizational model whereby operations, development, and management are streamlined towards Bimodal IT while meeting very high demands for uptime and stability.
Swedwise helped create processes to support organisational change: adapting infrastructure to a Bimodal IT approach, which accommodated both a rapidly changing agile part and more traditional legacy system integration at the same time.
The project is ongoing, but so far has been successful and led to productivity gains. VGR renewed its integration strategy and made architectural changes within the platform that will realise integration needs within the Future Health Information Environment (FVM). In addition to technological changes, such as the introduction of an API platform, Bimodal IT and a “Center for enablement” (C4E) has been built to better equip the organisation for API-led integration.
