The Secretary General updates the data processing services



Introduction of a new data processing system for the provincial secretaries

07/10/2011: General House

The Secretary General, after updating the data processing services of the General Administration, will begin to meet with the provincial secretaries and their assistants to familiarize them with the operation of the new system. The meetings will take place by geographic area, keeping in mind the working languages of the Marist world. Brother Pedro Sánchez de León, Secretary General, along with Brother Marcelo De Brito, programmer of the new data processing tool, will be showing the provincial secretaries the operation of this new instrument. Their intent is to establish a new data processing system that will provide a solution to the needs that the Secretary General's office presently has, especially in the gathering of information from throughout the Institute.

The first meeting has already begun with the Provinces of Compostela, Ibérica and Mediterránea, in Spanish October 3-7, in the Mediterránea provincial house at Guardamar (Spain). The process will continue in November with the Provinces of L’Hermitage, Europa Centro-Oeste and Canada, in French. In December, in Mexico, the provinces of Latin America and the USA. A similar meeting is planned for Africa, in January, in Nairobi; and in February there will be a meeting for the provincial secretaries of Asia and Oceania, in Davao.

The present plan of updating, that the Secretary General is implementing, is the start of a new era of communication with the administrative units. This new strategy of communication is envisioned in three broad areas: constant and smooth correspondence with all the provincial secretaries; the modernization and updating of the database of the Institute and its establishment in all the Provinces and Districts; and, in the coming months, to show all the provincial secretaries, and invite them to use, the file management and library tool called PERGAMUM, developed by the PUCPR (the Pontifical Catholic University of Paraná, Brazil), offspring of the Archivum v.2.
