[News] Governments Show Interest in Standards/Freedom/Transparency

Hash: SHA1

How Open a Platform does "Open Government" Need?

,----[ Quote ]
| These documents, which were posted for public comment through September 22 of 
| last year, represent but the latest deliverables of a carefully considered 
| and practical process. The definition and requirements for open standards 
| that the IDABC has developed are both sound in substance and founded on real 
| and well articulated justifications.    
| I believe that the EU is following a path that is leading towards the type of 
| interoperability within governments, and between governments and citizens, 
| that should serve as a model for governments everywhere. Hopefully 
| governments around the world will so conclude as well. If they do decide to 
| follow along on the carefully considered roadmap that the IDABC and the 
| Member States of the EU have laid out, vendors as well as citizens will 
| benefit, as achieving a global consensus on what constitutes an open standard 
| for government procurement must inevitably serve to rationalize and expand 
| the market for compliant products..        


This week:

| 11 projects, including the building of a website on software and content
| industry, a fund to develop software and content industry, a digital
| information standard system and information exchange standards, an IT
| complex, and the developing of a software industry and digital content
| nursery.
