Integrated Omnis web application brings 21st-century technology to Malagasy judicial process

After previous failures encountered by the Malagasy administration, there were growing demands for a robust, modular, scalable and maintainable solution”

— Technical Director of Capdata Software Marcel Ramanantsoa

SAXMUNDHAM, SUFFOLK, UNITED KINGDOM, November 25, 2020 / — The wheels of justice can potentially turn much faster in Madagascar now that every court on the island has access to an ultra-modern digital system. Legacy IT networks and paper-based procedures have all gone, from now on Madagascar’s digital justice will be administered via a highly secure, paper-less office environment. The primary beneficiaries of this new upgrade – the outcome of a cooperative partnership between the State of Madagascar and the European Union – will be the island’s Ministry of Justice and Ministry of Finance. Capdata Software won the project tender, presenting a full web solution developed with Omnis Studio which exploits the no-fuss, multi-device, multi-platform connectivity Omnis JavaScript Client technology was designed for.

Anchoring this democratic republic’s justice system is a high-order challenge: the Omnis web application seamlessly manages three different types of Malagasy courts, meeting the daily demands of 20,000 users accessing a system spread across 19 different servers. The new, end-to-end system digitalisation encompasses the entire judicial framework, right through to the drafting of the final judgement. This requires substantial administrative support including the digitisation of every kind of court document, and the use of an advanced text editor to facilitate the production and handling of a vast array of legal templates in two languages. What it also requires is the trademark stability and rock-steady assurance Omnis now delivers behind the scenes.

Modern standards of legal transparency also create heavy demands for rigorous authenticity and high-profile security. So Madagascar’s new, Omnis-inspired court system must now be on constant standby ready to certify all documents using QR code readers and identification keys, while also implementing robust data security, processing cloud backups, and maintaining a state-of-the-art PostgreSQL database to keep track of everything.

Technical Director of Capdata Software Marcel Ramanantsoa explains why Omnis Studio was the obvious choice for such a task: “After previous failures encountered by the Malagasy administration, there were growing demands for a robust, modular, scalable and maintainable solution … Omnis Studio made it possible to respond coherently, effectively and completely to the technical and architectural needs of the project.”

And commenting on the decision to deploy the Omnis JavaScript Client, Mr Ramanantsoa added: “We chose the Omnis JavaScript Client technology for this project because of its efficiency in development, as well as its speed and simplicity of deployment. Omnis Studio allows powerful UI development and allows us to react immediately to any user requirements and requested modifications.”

The NFD project

This productive collaboration between Madagascar and the EU is just one part of an ongoing NFD project (in Malagasy, Ny Fanjakana ho an’ ny Daholo be: “Administration for All”) which aims to support the establishment of good governance, and seeks to modernise the state administration.

Noting the important contribution this judicial project has already made to the NFD scheme, Mr Ramanantsoa said: “The project has been welcomed by the European Union and the Ministry of Justice since the implementation of the entire solution makes it possible to take a major step forward in the digital transformation of the Administration.”
