Open Source Concerns
  • OSS is now a credible alternative to proprietary
    offerings no longer a garage/hobbyist
    activity.
  • Lack of market confidence remains, due to
    concerns such as
  • availability of support,
  • skill levels,
  • understanding of licence terms,
  • liability
  • OSS tends to push the integration into the users
    as opposed to vendors (off-putting extra support
    and integration costs)
  • The overall trend is towards mixed business
    models companies offer both proprietary and OS
    offerings to meet customers needs (Red Hat, IBM)
  • 70 of OS developers in Europe
  • 90 of business derived from OSS generated by
    non-European players
  • Most OSS consortia are US-based and funded by US
    companies

Open Source in Public Sector
  • OSS is making an inroad to public
    administrations, mainly, with small budgets
  • Advantages at National level include
  • Independence from particular vendors
  • No (limited) licence fees
  • Cost reduction in development and maintenance
  • Advantages at European level include
  • Facilitate application sharing between different
    national administrations, assuming EU Directives
    have been transposed
  • Overcome interoperability issues resulting from
    fragmented implementations
  • Capability to customise OSS according to each
    public administration needs and to combine with
    proprietary systems is a crucial factor

Open Source for Public eProcurement
  • Public eProcurement is a good candidate for OSS
    development since
  • IDABC has laid foundations (Func Specs)
  • Implementation of i2010 Plan requires investment
  • Local and regional authorities (80 of tenders in
    EU) do not have required resources
  • Public eProcurement is a highly complex project.
  • Collaboration between public administrations
    seems to be the sole alternative for reaching the
    i2010 target and achieving interoperability

5
Next Steps for OS Public eProcurement
  • Collaborative Public eProcurement project using
    the OSS model is needed to be implemented and
    managed jointly by Member States public
    administrations.
  • ELLECTRA offers the seed for attracting OSS
    community to help
  • A fully developed application
  • Development infrastructure, portal, repositories
    provide services to developers
  • Public administrations members of the community
    can provide feedback to developers
  • INTRASOFT is a de facto OSS community leader
  • Public administrations need to
  • justify developers motivation and consider
    funding models
  • continuously monitor and evaluate results
  • Involve other public administrations
