The Common Interface, a crucial component of the Common Components System, underwent its last major update in 2017-2018. While maintaining stability, its existing technology stack poses limitations for future improvements and vital security updates.
Therefore, as part of the comprehensive CCS renewal initiative, a reimagination of the Common Interface has been undertaken. This transformation will leverage cutting-edge technologies and address long-standing functional and security concerns reported by users. The forthcoming New Common Interface promises to unlock new possibilities and fortify this essential system for the years ahead.
Following through a rigorous public procurement process, Capgemini Consulting Österreich AG has been chosen as the supplier for the development and ongoing maintenance of the New Common Interface.
Capgemini Consulting Österreich AG is a global leader in leveraging technology to transform and manage businesses. With a commitment to an inclusive and sustainable future, Capgemini boasts a diverse team of over 360,000 members across 50+ countries. Their 55-year legacy and industry expertise make them a trusted partner, addressing a wide range of business needs from strategy to digital engineering.
The development project was successfully kicked off in June 2023 and user-wide deployment is scheduled for beginning of April 2024.
