DVZ Datenverarbeitungszentrum Mecklenburg-Vorpommern GmbH (DVZ) is the IT service provider for the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. DVZ has provided a secure IT infrastructure within its own high-availability data processing service center for more than 30 years. As the high-security data processing center for the state, DVZ must ensure the utmost level of data security at all times. Its environment includes modern and reliable data processing operations and a secure communication infrastructure that meets the strict rules and regulations of the Federal Office for Information Security (Bundesamtes für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik or BSI), including its recently implemented TR-ESOR guidelines. Having this secure environment based on Oracle’s SOA Suite has enabled DVZ to implement an electronic personal civil status registry two years ahead of the legal deadline.
DVZ Datenverarbeitungszentrum Mecklenburg-Vorpommern GmbH evaluated several other solutions that met BSI technical guidelines requiring organizations to implement the systems as monolithic, complete solutions. The organization chose Oracle because no other solution supported the intended modular architecture or vendor independence for the archive to reduce long term risks, or met DVZ’s specific needs.
DVZ chose Oracle SOA Suite because of its open user interface and standard components, which proved to be optimal for third-party component integration. DVZ also used Oracle SOA Suite for the implementation of the ArchiSave module that is specified in the BSI Guidelines.
With Oracle SOA Suite and the organization’s consequent standardized interface implementations, DVZ can replace components in-house, according to its specific needs and requirements, thus meeting specifications of the BSI technical guidelines.
