So much for e-Government: #Amsterdam cannot connect to #DigiD server #fail

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/03/06

So much for e-Government:

Er is geen verbinding met de server. Probeer het later opnieuw.


Request is unsuccessful

Those are the messages I get for the last couple of hours when trying to see my community TAX information in Amsterdam.

It means the Amsterdam community TAX office server cannot connect to the country wide government DigiD authentication server.

It basically means that you cannot get reliably get to your on-line TAX information.

Don’t give me the ‘oh, this is outside business hours, we’ll fix it during business hours’ crap.

When you – as a business or government – offer information on-line, people expect it to work 24/7, so you need to have  a system for 24/7 monitoring and response-upon-failure.

The paperless era is still ages away…
