Open source document management built for ministries of Interior and Justice

The village of Koigi (Estonia) will start to use Delta, the document management system made available as open source software by the country’s Ministry of the Interior. The village is the most-recent public administration to switch to the open source DMS.

The Interior Ministry started using Delta in 2012. The software is also used by the Ministry of Justice and in many parts of the country’s justice system, including courts, prosecution offices, prisons, and the data protection inspectorate. Since then, the DMS has been implemented by 31 of the country’s 213 municipalities, and by the state-owned welfare organisation AS Hoolekandeteenused.

Delta is a web-based application, making it easy for users to store and manage documents. The software can easily be integrated in document workflows, and is built with support for both open source as well as proprietary office productivity suites.

The software was developed over 2 years by Nortal, an ICT service provider. The solution is based on the Alfresco DMS and Delta’s source code is published using the same software licence, the GPLv2.
