To meet citizens’ expectations, DSS sought to create a solution to provide citizens a seamless, transparent, personalised and two-way experience with government. Recognising that government websites are one-way and transactional, DSS wanted an effective way to communicate with today’s digital citizens. DSS engaged with Version 1 to build a digital solution that would effectively communicate, promote and amplify uptake of government services and information.


The Version 1 team deployed, configured, customised and supports the content management solution that underpins the new MyNI website for Northern Ireland government. Version 1 works in collaboration with the DSS team and other vendors using an agile scrum-based approach to deliver MyNI. Version 1’s technology platform enables ongoing collaboration between the public and private sector to create and share content that will benefit citizens living in Northern Ireland.

Content Management Solution (CMS) – Version 1 delivered an open source technology solution to enable the public and private sector to collaboratively create and share content that benefit citizens living in Northern Ireland.

High Performing Agile Team – In partnership with our customer, Version 1 strived to understand and agree what success looks like then we collectively worked towards it.

“MyNI is focused on social engagement with citizens. Version 1 has been instrumental in making this project a success – in partnership, the Version 1 team built the underpinning technology platform that enables government to engage with digital citizens."
