> Switching from proprietary software to open source software in Danish
> public administration has an economic scope of several billion DKK every
> year. This is the conclusion in a report prepared by a working group under
> The Danish Board of Technology. The working group has compiled a detailed
> analysis of the use of open source software in public administration in
> Denmark - especially the economic perspectives. The analysis shows that
> open source software is a viable alternative to the proprietary software.
> One reason the open source software is competitive is because it allows
> users to change, to correct and to distribute the software and therefore
> to a greater extent leaves the user in control of changes.
>
> The analysis shows good possibilities for using the open source software
> as desktop software, e.g. for word processing and there is a potential for
> lowering the cost of using desk-top software.
>
> Open source infrastructure software (e.g. web- and mail servers and
> operating systems) already has a strong market position, caused by
> superior performance and lower cost.  In relation to custom developed
> software, where the public administration is expected to perform massive
> investment for the years to come,  the report discusses alternatives to
> the traditional ways of development.
>
> Based on the analysis and the conclusions of the report, the working group
> lists a set of recommendations for a policy of creating more competition
> on the software market which could lead to a possible switch to open
> source software. The most important recommendation is on creating open
> standards for document storage and exchange. The group's consideration is
> that open source is "a real alternative for e-government", and that "it
> will
> be necessary for executives in the public sector to consider strategies
> for future it-investments, which includes open source software".
>
> The report presented October 2002 initiated many articles and a hefty
> debate in the Danish media concerning proprietary software versus open
> source
> software. The report is now available in English.
>
> The European Parliament has contributed to the translation of the report .
