The PANDA project addressed the user needs of large and complex organisations such as public administrations. The objective was to build a demonstrator able to support the main activities carried out in public administration offices. The demonstrator was to address case-handling tools as well as tools for information flow control and circulation. The project aimed to integrate on a common platform the components available from these projects, taking the relevant standards into account.
The basic goals of PANDA were to:
PANDA was concerned with the building up of integrated office systems including servers, communications facilities, dedicated devices and different kinds of workstations; particular emphasis will be devoted to problems of case processing, documents processing, filing and retrieval, and information exchange.
The project was an attempt to address the overall information management problem, providing document handling and control facilities by means of user-friendly graphics interfaces.
The result of the project is a demonstrator able to support real-life applications in office environments.
The consortium members will exploit the various modules according to their marketing strategies, and have agreed to support each other in the maintenance of the modules and in extending their scope.
