Statistical Business Process Modernization

Modernization is key to continuous improvement of statistical business processes. It enables National Statistical Offices (NSOs) to maximize the use of existing sources and better manage data confidentiality issues. Modernization is at the core of transforming statistical systems to meet the needs of the 21st century.

Stakeholders engaged in the modernizing process can rely on a variety of models and tools including the Generic Statistical Business Process Model (GSBPM) and the Generic Activity Model for Statistical Organizations (GAMSO), as well as standards and tools such as the Generic Statistical Information Model (GSIM), the Common Statistical Production Architecture (CSPA), the Data Documentation Initiative (DDI), and the Statistical Data and Metadata eXchange (SDMX).
