The Netherlands are currently facing their biggest IT challenge ever. The main reason is the activation of a new law which turns out to be an enabler to refactor the entire digital government. Having a lot of established departments and public authorities, our governmental IT landscape consists of lots of legacy systems which now need to be connected to each other, or replaced.
