⭐ Good Practice Description

Logius employs about 500 people. It is a shared service entity that provides critical digital services for the Dutch public sector. To deliver its services, Logius uses two infrastructures: A data centre platform acquired from another government entity that supports applications of national interest, such as DIGID and a data centre that supports less critical applications.

Success Factors

Technology Innovation

Logius considers cloud computing a key pillar for agility. Logius is working on developing a Kubernetes container-based orchestration layer that aims to rollout to AWS, Azure, and government private cloud data centres, representing a truly interoperable orchestration layer for agile deployment.

Governance and Organizational Structure

The Logius internal operating model and culture is changing to offer more agile and scalable services to government departments by breaking up big product and application silos and by basing everything on business-case discussions.
