Openbaar Ministerie, the Dutch Public Prosecution Service, leads adjudication of criminal cases in the Netherlands. It decides whether or not a case should be brought to court, and, if so, it initiates proceedings. In addition, it is also responsible for protecting the rights of victims and offenders throughout the judicial process. To put it concisely, Openbaar Ministerie is responsible for maintaining legal order.
The organization was looking to digitalize its entire workflow and to use the already centralized databases from criminal justice case files more efficiently by simplifying data storage and enabling quick multimedia data retrieval. To achieve its goals, the organization selected Oracle Exadata Database Machine. The solution, which is managed by Atos and delivered to the Dutch Public Prosecution Service as through outsourcing, led to more efficient day-to-day handling of criminal justice cases.
