Join us on 30 November for an OSOR community event focusing on how open source can contribute to the sharing and reuse of IT solutions!
In an increasingly connected world, the sharing and reuse of IT solutions plays a fundamental role in boosting European governments’ interoperability. Open source is a key enabler of this process in addition to supporting cost reduction, increased efficiency, and faster delivery of digital public services.
Some of the good practices deployed by European public administrations involve the creation of open source communities, the publication of guidelines and toolboxes, the use of common registries to share solutions, and the deployment of sound governance structures. These practices facilitate the reuse of existing solutions, thus ensuring faster delivery of digital public services.
Despite the numerous benefits, governments often have trouble when leveraging open source and lack documented lessons learnt from other organisations. How can they overcome these challenges? To answer this question, OSOR has invited Kristo Vaher, Chief of Technology for the Estonian government, and Matthieu Faure, an open source project manager at Adullact (French organisation of local governments) to share their experiences. They will talk about enabling the sharing and reuse of IT solutions through open source in their administrations at the national and local level, especially the use of common catalogues and repositories in boosting the open source software adoption.
After the presentations, we will explore the challenges that remain in capitalising on OSS for the sharing and reuse of IT solutions and how we might overcome them together.
