The Agency for Governmental IT Services was established in 2010 as the result of a merger of eight ministerial IT operations organizations.

In the years 2010-2014, we implemented a number of projects that have resulted in a series of standardized common platforms and processes, which are now the basis for the participating institutions' daily IT operations.

The transformation from differentiated heterogeneous IT environments to standardized and homogenized environments on an inter-governmental level was a large and complex task but proved successful.

Today, the Agency for Governmental IT Services acts as the Danish state's internal IT operations organization.
