The overall objective of the project was to contribute to the modernization of Albania’s civil registration system for the benefit of the authorities as well as the citizens. The new National Civil Register enables Albanian institutions to build a modern IT infrastructure where civil registration will be one of the cornerstones of the public administrative IT systems. This project is another step toward the increase of transparency in the economy and simplifies the interaction between public administration, the nation’s residents and the private sector.

This project was financed by Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union in cooperation with the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), SN, US Government, Council of Europe (CoE) and the Government of Albania.

The system is based on a solid IBM Hardware and Software infrastructure, guaranteeing the performance and authenticity of the data.

Infosoft Systems as the most consolidated IBM partner in Albania for years, has been actively involved in this continuous project, upgrading the IT infrastructure (hardware and software) in 2010, and is now offering maintenance services. Our main responsibilities were to supply, install and configure the Hardware Infrastructure up to the preparation of virtualization layer and installation of operating system.
