Netherlands helps Denmark with open IT

,----[ Quote ]
| The Dutch government has provided Denmark
| with information regarding the Dutch
| national plan Heemskerk for open government
| IT.
| In Denmark, there is heated debate about the
| approach for open IT usage by the
| government. One of the obstacles is the open
| file format for mandatory use by the
| government and government organizations. ODF
| (Open Document Format) and OOXML (Open
| Office XML), originally developed by
| Microsoft, are the candidates for use.
| The Dutch Ministry of Finance shared with
| Denmark the experience and knowledge it has
| gained from the national plan Heemskerk and
| the resulting action plan "Nederland Open in
| Verbinding" (NOiV). Finance spokesman Edwin
| van Scherrenburg confirmed to Dutch IDG news
| site Webwereld that the two governments are
| in contact. "We have shared all information
| regarding NOiV," he said.

,----[ Quote ]
| Mogens KÃhn Pedersen, chair of the Danish
| Standards Committee, says Microsoft is
| lying when it says it will implement ISO
| OOXML in the next version of its suite of
| office applications.
| On Saturday Pedersen accused the software
| vendor of lying, in an article by the
| Danish news site Business.dk, part of the
| newspaper Berlingske Tidene. Pedersen,
| professor of Informatics at the Copenhagen
| Business School, on Monday afternoon
| confirmed his statement: "I realise these
| are blunt remarks to make as chair of the
| committee, but when you advise the
| government you have to tell the truth."
