Abstract: eServices with Spagic at OMSAR - Public Administration of the Republic of Lebanon - Gianfranco Boccalon, Spagic - Engineering Group
The Public Administration in the Republic of Lebanon has adopted Spagic to develop an infrastructure supporting the realization of eServices, which allows citizens to request for specific services delivered by the Public Administration, through the portal of the Office of the Minister of State for Administrative Reform (OMSAR). Citizens can submit various types of service requests on-line, such as requests for registration certificates. At any time users can check the status of the submitted requests: in progress; need for additional documentation; incoming communications sent by the administration; outcome. During the project development, particular attention was paid to the realization of the tools that had been provided by the operators of the various administrations, in order to dynamically create new eServices. This project is an important step forward in the Lebanese public administration's IT infrastructure innovation path. This is not only the result of the adoption of a completely open source solution. It also allows a greater involvement of citizens in the management of administration activities, with a particular focus on delivering efficient services and transparent information. The speech provides an overview on the project state of the art and the obtained results. Participation of some OMSAR representatives to be confirmed.

Abstract: DocDokuPLM: Product Structure - Digital MockUp visualization using HTML5 - Florent Garin, DocDoku
DocDokuPLM (Product Lifecycle Management) is a middleware solutions aim at managing the entire lifecycle of a product from its conception to its disposal through the manufacturing stage. PLM systems involve the whole enterprise, they gather at a central point data, business processes and people. They expose backbone services for the company, their partners and their subcontrators thus we design our PLM with the extended enterprise concept in mind. On the technical part we made the decision to not rely on any native code on the client side all the features must be accessible through a regular web browser. If that seems quite obvious nowadays and doesn't represent a big challenge for the "Document Management", "Product Configuration", "Change Management" or "Bill of Materials" modules that tends to be far more complex when developing the data visualization of the product structure. This session will focus on how we implemented the visualization and the manipulation of the Digital MockUp (DMU) using HTML5 technologies. We'll explain the difficulties we encountered and also the various optimizations we made in order to render a model with thousands part. And obviously we'll show a real demonstration !
Florent Garin is the co-founder of DocDoku, an IT consultancy and software development organization specialized on Android, iOS and HTML5 technologies. We’re focus on business applications, our customers are mostly big companies and innovative startups. Prior to DocDoku, Florent has 10 years’ experience working for the IT departments of fortune 500 companies, and more specifically in the PLM area in the aerospace domain.
