Altinn is a web portal and a technical platform for submission of digital forms to the public sector. Altinn also provides other digital services, such as transmission of messages and mail from the public sector and access services related to public registers.
Altinn has been under development since 2008 to support new services, for example cooperation, distribution and transaction services, sharing of data and processing of sensitive personal data. Due to increased use, however, it has proven challenging to deliver a robust, stable and reliable solution in Altinn for both new and existing services. Altinn must be developed further to handle future challenges and become an important element in connection with the development of digital services.
