Annual Webware Conference at PROTO Discovery Factory

Webware aastakonverents PROTO avastustehases

Even though some time has passed since the last Info Day, we wanted to revive this format under the name of the Annual Conference.
This year’s Annual Conference
will take place on 21. September at the PROTO Discovery Factory in Tallinn.

The aim of the conference is to meet WebDesktop users after a long time, to introduce Webware’s company developments and new people, and to talk about new developments in WebDesktop.

Secure and risk-free storage of information assets


Webware’s ambition is to become an internationally recognised information management platform in the region. We have been operating mainly in the Estonian market for more than 21 years and have established a strong position. More than 120 organisations trust our platform to manage their information and, apart from Estonian companies, WebDesktop has also been adopted by multinational companies in various European countries.

Our aim is to help you store, manage and process information assets securely and risk-free. We’re not just talking about document management, but the entire organisation’s information assets, because WebDesktop has already grown to be more than just a document management system.

Main updates to the WebDesktop information system


Technology has made some important innovations over time. Some examples include the DHX migration, e-invoicing XML and the reworking of the cloud service. We’ve upgraded PHP, and the WebDesktop platform received a new version 6 this year.

We also wrote about WD6 updates in a previous post,

WebDesktop 6. Apart from an update to the interface design and look, the most important updates in the new version include:

  • Dokobit Gateway and PDF signing, which is an important innovation especially for international companies, as internationally PDF signing is more accepted.
  • Direct editing has made working with documents much easier and more convenient, as you no longer need to download a file from the download page, but can make all changes to a file directly in the WebDesktop environment.
  • We have drawn attention to security issues. It is now possible to manage the LIVE and TEST environments on separate servers.
  • ADR and intranet sharing functionality is also a major innovation. In addition, there is also a UVK or connector.

The new version of the long-awaited information system, which we have currently code-named WDX, will also be presented at the annual conference. Let’s revisit what WDX is and why we are developing it. What value does WDX offer and when and how can you start using it? Let’s explain the whole process in more detail.

Interfaces, cross-country WD solution, some use cases


EIA, internationalism, public server and cybersecurity


We are also delighted that WebDesktop users and our own customers are taking part in the discussion panel to share their real-life experiences. In this panel we will discuss interfaces in more detail. We are also paying attention to the transnational use of WD, as many companies in Estonia have also grown to become international, which is why the information system originally introduced must also be able to meet cross-border requirements.

Many thanks to the representatives of the University of Tartu and Magnum AS at this annual conference for their willingness to share their experience and discuss narrow and broader issues together.
