Union des Groupements d’Achats Publics (UGAP), the national public procurement agency in France, has selected eccenca to serve as provider of semantic data management solutions and knowledge graph creation to government departments in France. The decision mirrors the need for organizations – private and public – to link their siloed data and disparate IT systems to drive digitalization and process automation.
As France's "generalist" public procurement agency and specific player in public procurement, UGAP assesses and approves technology and service providers for purchase by public entities. Public and governmental departments are exempt from any prior competitive bidding and advertising process when choosing solutions from the approved list of providers.
eccenca will provide public service organizations the foundational framework and services to create a shared view on their data. The knowledge graph platform solution eccenca Corporate Memory enables the comprehensive and transparent management of organizational data across all systems. It also provides visibility to related processes, rules constraints, capabilities and configurations in a single application.
We are delighted, to be selected as the first official semantic data management solution provider for public service agencies across a list of more than 3000 companies, explains Antoine Janning, Director of Business Development at eccenca.
Public agencies struggle to collaborate because of disparate IT systems, different data models and different views on their data. Most data is stuck in silos, often redundant or even contradictory. French public agencies have realised that in times of need for rapid crisis management and cross-departmental collaboration, they must establish a cross-functional data management framework that allows fast data integration, lifting, processing and visualization.
