Agoria presents each year its e-gov Awards, to distinguish the most promising IT projects realised by public authorities in Belgium.
This year, the CRF, Conseil Regional de la Formation (Regional Council for Education) has been awarded an e-gov distinction for an innovative application for competence management, developed by defimedia.
The CRF proposes to local authorities tools that allow a consistent approach to human resources development. In this context, it tasked defimedia with the development of the application Scillus.
This application manages a repository of job descriptions, linked to recruitment and evaluation questionnaires and to job openings. These can be tailored to meet the realities of local authorities' HR services.
Scillus is a web-based application using HTML5, developed in Java with the Struts framework, and uses a PostgreSQL database. The application is available for desktops and tablets, and is fully responsive. Today, the application is used by 221 entities and it will be deployed for all cities in Wallonia.
Pierre Petit, Director Education Council at the CRF, says: "this award is a recognition of the work of a very motivated team, which relentlessly assists its colleagues in the search for the best positioning within local and provincial institutions. Our innovative approach allowed us to quickly convince the first users, by offering them solutions well adapted to their context. We can closely align onto the needs of the different entities, adding to it our experience in competencies development. The partnership with defimedia gave us access to modern technologies; their expertise in optimising user experience has1 been a key factor in the application's success".
