1 Dutch programme on Open Standards and Open Source Software for governments Mark Bressers, programme manager OSOSS

2 egovernment in the Netherlands! National agencies, provinces, local municipalities and 'waterschappen' (1400)! Largely independent! Need for more interoperability (improve service, efficiency)! Accessibility and availability of information

3 egovernment in the Netherlands: general policy! Re-use of information: agencies shouln't ask twice! Authentication on several levels! Agencies should use open standards! Aim: 65% electronic service delivery in 2007

4 Policy on Open Standards and Open Source Software!Starting point: vote in parliament (2002)!All governmental organisations should use open standards for communication and messaging - this is not (yet) mandatory! Equal opportunities for open source software and closed source software - there is no duty to use open or free software

5 Drivers for governments using open source / free software! Vendor lock-in! Interoperability / Flexibility! Re-usability! Quality: transparency, sustainability, safety! Costs (?)! Stimulating local/european software industry (?)

6 Programme OSOSS! Competence centre on open standards (OS) and open source software (OSS) for governments! Open Standards are a must!! Encouraging use of Open Source Software! Commissioned by ministry of Interior and ministry of Trade and Economics! Part of the Dutch organisation for egovernment (ICTU)! Competences: technical, legal, communication

7 Tasks of competence centre 1. Creating awareness / knowledge dissemination

8 Tasks of competence centre 2. Guidelines and best practices! How to start?! License-manual! Legal advise (liability)!! TCO-studies! Catalogue of open standards (www.canos.nl)

9 Tasks of competence centre 3. Just helping / Advise! Anything that is needed: legal, technical, organisational..! Helpdesk: mail, telephone, inhouse! Quick advise upto supporting pilots! We don't give money

10 Open Source Software: in practice! Most public organisations use 'some' open source software! Use of free software concentrates in backoffice - server, content management (MMBase), file-print services, databases! Slow adoption on the desktop! Governments mostly 'user', not 'distributor'

11 More examples Municipalities Haarlem: OpenOffice.org on 1400 desktops estemated savings: Euro on license costs Woerden: Fileservers Linux/Samba Amsterdam: MMBase / pilots Linux on the desktop Haren: PostgreSQL database as alternative for Oracle Other Department for Infratsructure: Linuxcluster for monitoring ''water-management'' very critical system Savings: 50% on hardware and licenses KNMI: Linux on 120 desktops, power users Savings: ,- National Aviation and Space Agency: Linux-VMware-Windows 2000 solution Savings: 66% on hardware and licensecosts Donderdag 13 mei 2004

12 Open Standaarden: we all agree but...! There is no standard (semantic, document formats)! Too much standards! Standards implemented with a 'flavour'

13 TCO is very confusing! Soreon Research (onafhankelijk), 2003 Robert Frances Group (i.o.v. IBM), 2002 IDC (i.o.v. MS), 2002 Cybersource (onafhanklijk), 2002

14 What needs to be done?! More transparency in TCO: where is the data?! Network effects of standardisation! We need facts, but look beyond TCO! Compliance to open standards! Software patents and open source software
