OpenGov is recognising GovTech for its development of the Content Websites Platform and the API exchange (APEX). The Content Websites Platform (CWP) is a common hosting platform for government websites. It provides a common secured environment based on a resilient, robust and controlled platform which provides a suite of standardised software for hosting content-based websites. It enables unclassified government websites to be centrally managed and operated on public cloud, bringing the benefits of convenience, greater security, optimisation of resources, faster deployment speed and cost savings through economies of scale.
APEX, which has been developed by GovTech in collaboration with the Ministry of Finance, serves as a centralised data sharing platform for government agencies to share data conveniently and securely through the use of Application Programming Interfaces or APIs. APEX also facilitates secure transfer of data between the public-facing front-end i.e. the Internet and the back-end (Intranet).
