The national service architecture enables to build safe service packages for citizens, companies and authorities according to the one-stop-shop principle. The execution of the project is being managed by the Population Register Centre. For Finland, its success is a significant step towards realising the benefits of digitalisation.

Tieto is responsible for the project's service catalogue , which can be used to find services for citizens, companies and authorities.  Agile development is carried out by Tieto's experienced Scrum team, which is mainly based in Ostrava, Czech Republic.

"The service catalogue plays a major role, even though it is not a very visible part. In the future, it will contain up-to-date descriptions of all published services. The search engine is available at and, if desired, it is also possible to search for contents through the open interface," says Janne Viskari from the Population Register Centre. 


"After visiting the Ostrava office, I was left with the impression that, for example, the customers' confidentiality requirements have been take into account adequately. There are no special confidentiality requirements for the service catalogue as its contents are fully public and the source code of the application will be released as open source," states Janne Viskari.

In addition to implementing the service catalogue, Tieto has integrated several basic catalogues, such the population information system, the vehicle data system and the business information system, for the services. All applications of the online service have been placed in the government data centre and capacity environment produced by Tieto.
