Transcript

  • 1. FOSS in the Public Sector: agile.open.connectedBusiness and Sustainability Models 2nd OSEPA Conference in Jihlava 28 – 29 March 2012 Cesare Brizio
  • 2. This presentation is not about “which exact steps you should take”: PloneGov didn’t discover anything new, and I’m not in the condition of teaching “secret arts”. 2nd OSEPA Conference in Jihlava 28 – 29 March 2012 C. Brizio
  • 3. Rather, it’s a talk about awareness, about understanding a system that generatesopportunities - a free software community - and about surrendering to that system 2nd OSEPA Conference in Jihlava 28 – 29 March 2012 C. Brizio
  • 4. From energy to synergy:let’s put the pieces together 2nd OSEPA Conference in Jihlava 28 – 29 March 2012 C. Brizio
  • 5. Three different energies... Public Free SW Free SW organizations communities SMBs Requirements Methods and Technical and operational opportunities knowledge, knowledge (“lifestyle”) services new Laws, Procurement... Who else can provide them? ?Which is the smartest way to converge? 2nd OSEPA Conference in Jihlava 28 – 29 March 2012 C. Brizio
  • 6. Each source should irradiate the other two! Law should Public favor this organizations synergy! Global and Nationalcrises provide un , so le, fr ity mm ds So ult Co ini atio ftw eeopportunities! co tho Cu lut ing are ns ng Tra miz Me sto ion , gy e, ate ar Re sty s, str oftw qu , n ire es me Fre nts Methods, community style, free com software Fre niti SM W eS Bs e S es mu Fre W Free software, strategy 2nd OSEPA Conference in Jihlava 28 – 29 March 2012 C. Brizio
  • 7. We call such a synergy “The PloneGov Triangle”: everybody keeps on doing what he is best at, it just requires...• a mature free software community• companies actually embedded in that community (not opportunists...)• some degree of involvement of the Public Sector in that community• in short, each side of the triangle must be self- sustaining! PloneGov itself is a community 2nd OSEPA Conference in Jihlava 28 – 29 March 2012 C. Brizio
  • 8. THE MODEL Public bodies MAY APPLY TO ANY MATURE FREE SOFTWARE XXX GovPlone free RedTurtle, software Zea Partners networkCommunity & other SMBs✓ Tri-polar synergy✓ Simple concepts, far-ranging implications✓ Network-style collaboration at all vertices 2nd OSEPA Conference in Jihlava 28 – 29 March 2012 C. Brizio
  • 9. A borderline case from Belgium: “IMIO, nouvel acteur de la mutualisation informatique pour les communes” (http://www.communesplone.be/) Union des Villes et Communes de Wallonie A project-centric communitiy (“CommunesPlone”) of “Do It Yourself” Public bodies✓ Under very specific conditions (availability of skilled resources within the Public Sector, tradition of common investments) such as the CommunesPlone platform, the Public Bodies can do all by themselves✓ Resource pooling, Project-focused collaboration✓ Excellent example, but too advanced, unapplicable in most cases. PloneGov Italia may be less impressive, but is much easier to generalize and spread. 2nd OSEPA Conference in Jihlava 28 – 29 March 2012 C. Brizio
  • 10. Why the Public Bodies?... well, OSEPA already knows the answer :-) 2nd OSEPA Conference in Jihlava 28 – 29 March 2012 C. Brizio
  • 11. I hinted at “.....some degree of involvement of the Public Sector in that community” Q.: which degree??? 2nd OSEPA Conference in Jihlava 28 – 29 March 2012 C. Brizio
  • 12. A.: Any degree, up to this:2nd OSEPA Conference in Jihlava 28 – 29 March 2012 C. Brizio
  • 13. Why Plone?(...or any other suitable free software community....) 2nd OSEPA Conference in Jihlava 28 – 29 March 2012 C. Brizio
  • 14. COMMUNITIES:a key feature of free software Metrics of openness and reliability: Simon Phipps’ Software Freedom ScorecardThe model can only be based on a mature free software supported by an active, mature and widespread community, worth participating. A community giving an advantage to its members. C. Brizio
  • 15. FREE SOFTWARE Operating Personal ... Systems productivity CMS DBMS ERP ...... Drupal Joomla ... ... EZ Publish Alfresco ... Standard CMS Enterprise CMS 2nd OSEPA Conference in Jihlava 28 – 29 March 2012 C. Brizio

  • 17. RedTurtle: the importance ofbeing embedded in thecommunityOpportunists (“pretenders”) maylook like believers, we are believers.✓ highest standard of involvement: • see what’s happening Opportunists may look like believers, but they can just float ... • influence decisions • have some saying on the roadmap✓ highest standard of ethics and commitment: • release software • be fair • be collaborative ... where we swim. C. Brizio
