ZSI PGI-NRI - an integrated information system (ZSI) containing all existing and planned IT systems at PGI-NRI, whose operation is based on proven methods and best practices in the fields of: project management and project portfolio (according to PRINCE2 methodology), management of enterprise architecture (according to TOGAF 9 standards), management of software development, and service management (according to ITIL standards).

The current phase of the project ZSI (2013-2015) is being implemented within the framework of the programme entitled "An Integrated Information System of Polish Geological Institute - National Research Institute (PGI-NRI ZSI) based on the SOA" and includes:

  •           implementation of project management and project portfolio management principles in accordance with the PRINCE2 2009 methodology,
  •           implementation of enterprise architecture management principles based on the TOGAF9 methodology,
  •           implementation of service management principles based on ITIL approach,
  •           implementation of software development management principles,
  •           development of a safety management system (PN-ISO/IEC 27001),
  •           development of a strategy for the integration of PGI-NRI domain systems and ZSI concepts,
  •           design of ZSI based on business needs and the launch of two e-services in the domains of Polish Geological Survey and Polish Hydrogeological Survey,
  •           expansion of the data processing center and server infrastructure ZSI, as well as construction of a corporate IT network.

The aim of the project is to provide information necessary for the proper performance of the tasks of geological surveys enshrined in the Geological and Mining Law, as well as to realize the PGI-NRI tasks which are imposed by: law on infrastructure for spatial information, and laws and regulations relating to the computerization of public entities.

The maintenance and further development of the ZSI is  the topic of a project which has been pre-approved by the Ministry of the Environment  and will be implemented in 2015-2019. The project is funded through grants from the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management (contract No. 897/2013/GE-07/FG-GO-DN/D).
