  • OpenOffice 2.3 Overview About this Presentation
    • This presentation was built leveraging business case studies, technical evaluations. It is meant as a road map for an organization to determine the value proposition for the organization to migrate from Microsoft Office to OpenOffice.org.
  • OpenOffice 2.3 Overview Please to meet OOo! Note: Will build animation with next slide
  • OpenOffice 2.3 Overview Please to meet OOo!
    • OpenOffice.org Writer – a word processor you can use for anything from writing a quick letter to producing an entire book.
    • OpenOffice.org Calc – a powerful spreadsheet with all the tools you need to calculate, analyse, and present your data in numerical reports or sizzling graphics.
    • OpenOffice.org Impress – the fastest, most powerful way to create effective multimedia presentations.
    • OpenOffice.org Draw – lets you produce everything from simple diagrams to dynamic 3D illustrations.

    • OpenOffice.org Math – lets you create mathematical equations with a graphic user interface or by directly typing your formulas into the equation editor.
  • OpenOffice 2.3 Overview Why an Open Format?
    • "To me, that document formats for "office" applications should be completely open, not hindered by patents, and not owned by a single vendor is just obvious. I wasn't brought up to think otherwise, and so this whole business around why everyone should be rushing to implement the new OASIS OpenDocument format standard is a big "duh" (that is, slap-yourself-in-the-head-obvious)."
    • Robert S Sutor, Vice President Standards and Open Source- IBM
    • "OpenDocument OASIS Standard (ISO/IEC 26300) is a shining example of what partnership in standardization can achieve for the business community. Its publication underscores the importance of partnership among ISO and IEC and standards developing organizations such as OASIS to craft a common set of standards, and reflects the international community's recognition of the importance of open formats in enabling business interoperability. "

    • "the implementation of the open source software solution has provided to the Banco do Brasil new functionalities, hardware benefices utilization, costs reduction, and has rendered independence from software providers.

    • Vilson Carlos Pastro, Manager of the Open Source Center
  • Migration to OOo Novell
    • Began migration to OpenOffice.org in 2005
    • 90 percent of the workforce using OpenOffice.org
    • Realized that there is no need for mass conversion of documents to OOo
    • "We're willing as a company to make this migration because we're willing to learn. Although it's challenging I think we're really enjoying pushing the migration, knowing what we're knowing and learning what we're learning... My guidance to other CIOs is to look at where there is business value, bottom line, it's about business value. This isn't about taking on Microsoft head on, it's about finding the value, which could be security, it could be cost, and it could be synergies.
    • Debra Anderson, CIO- Novell
  • Migration to OOo Health First
    • Began migration of 3500 computers from MS Office in 2004
    • “ The major plus was obviously the cost. The financial difference between Office and OpenOffice was our foot in the door.
    • You see, our CIO and some CIOs from other health care organizations tried to get a not-for-profit organizational discount on Office from Microsoft. We can't afford to roll out a $2 million application when we are stretched, budget-wise, to take care of our patients. Basically, Microsoft would not offer a not-for-profit organizational discount. Obviously, that steamed our CIO, and he really liked the fact that we could save the company $2 million.”
    • Daniel Bray, Network Administrator- Health First
  • Migration to OOo Everex
    • Everex teams with OpenOffice.org to offer first PC with open source productivity suite sold in major US retailers

    • "On July 18 th of 2007 Everex launched its first Back to School PC with OpenOffice.org 2.2 into Walmart stores throughout the United States. The response was fantastic. Not only did Everex receive rave reviews from the media but consumer interest resulted in a 3 fold increase in web traffic for Everex.com. The feedback from Walmart was also very positive. They requested all of our future models to include OpenOffice productivity software
    • Everex would like to thank everyone involved with OpenOffice.org for their help and support. Congratulations again for providing the world with such a wonderful product.” ”
