SAMSUNG SDS to Develop Solutions for Building Electronic Government

Samsung SDS is set to develop XML-based (eXtensible Markup Language) solutions jointly with leading global companies. Recently, electronic administrative documents developed using standard XML, which was adopted by the Ministry of Government Administration and Home Affairs (MOGAHA) as a standard language, are being widely used for e-business in the governmental and public sector, setting the stage for electronic government, built based on XML, a primary next-generation Internet language. Under the newly formed partnerships with two world-class companies, Samsung SDS plans to develop a next-generation XML standard framework by combining XML solutions developed by eXcelon and the EDI transformation engine by Redix. The company aims to come up with various applications for electronic procurement, tailored to the local circumstances, and position itself firmly in the public sector e-business service market. The XML-based standard framework, on which a built-in EDI transformation engine will be loaded, will feature advanced compatibility, powerful security functions like digital signature and authentication, and electronic catalogs, gearing up for its application to electronic procurement. "Being recognized as an excellent language, XML was designated as a standard language for electronic documents in foreign countries as well as in Korea and is expected to play a crucial role in implementing electronic government as an infrastructure solution," said Dr. Ahn Jung-soo of Samsung SDS. "With the absence of standard solutions for a wide range of e-business, however, the application of XML has been limited to the procurement process or electronic documents." Dr. Ahn said that the planned development of a next-generation XML-based standard framework will present a stable solution, enabling a wide range of e-business in the public and governmental sectors ranging from medical to national defense, including electronic procurement, electronic transactions of agricultural and fisheries products, electronically integrated administrative services, tax services, and transportation and integrated logistics services. He also added that the XML-based standard framework is in the final stage of development and Samsung SDS plans to advance into the Chinese, Southeast Asian and European markets by utilizing its overseas marketing network, while it will start to provide the service to domestic government institutes and public companies from this November. The two partners of Samsung SDS, EXelon, a developer of XML-based solutions, and Redix, a world-leading EDI technology company, are seeking to form joint venture firms with domestic companies for the electronic procurement business, taking advantage of the strategic alliance with Samsung SDS.
