Software available to users in MONA

The main concept for MONA (Microdata Online access) is that through a secure internet connection, a user gets access to a Windows desktop on a Statistics Sweden server. Here is a list of currently available software in the MONA system.

The MONA system is based on communication between a terminal server and a terminal client. Data is primarily stored in SQL databases, making data available from most other software without any transformations.

Desktops are customised according to user requirements for software usage.
