OpenOffice.org at the Budapest Metropolitan Court

  1. 1. OpenOffice.org at the Budapest Metropolitan Court Ten years with OpenOffice.org Laky, Norbert lakyn@fovaros.birosag.hu
  2. 2. Outline ● The organization of the Hungarian Judicial system and the Metropolitan Court ● OpenOffice.org migration ● Milestone 1. 18th and 19th District Court of Justice in 2000 ● Milestone 2. The Pest Central District Court of justice in 2003. ● Milestone 3. The Labour Court in 2005 ● Experiences
  3. 3. The Hungarian Judicial system Supreme Court of Hungary Courts of appeal Budapest,Szeged, Pécs, Debrecen and Győr Metropolitan Court + 19 county courts district courts – local courts Budapest Labour Court – 19 Labour Courts
  4. 4. The Metropolitan Court ● Headcount: 2557 ● 939 judges, secretary, drafter ● 1339 clerks ● 2750 computeri- sed workplaces ● 14 buildings
  5. 5. The infrastructure of the information systems in 2010 ● The courts in Hungary has a country wide network for the 158 court buildings ● The building blocks: Novell Netware, E- Directory, ZENWorks, Linux - OpenEnterprise Server etc. ● The Metropolitan Court is part of the country wide network
  6. 6. M1 - 18th and 19th District Court of Justice ● In 2000 the District Court moved to a new building. ● We planned a new thin client based system. ● The options were: ● Oracle NC in Java environment, ● WBT in MS environment, ● SunRay thin clients in Sun environment, ● LTSP based solution. ● We chose the SUN technology. ● SUN dropped up us to the oo.org express! :)
  7. 7. 18th and 19th District Court of Justice ● 65 (98) SunRay Thin Clients (judges, clerks, court rooms) ● 3 network printers ● OpenWin/Gnome graphical user interface ● StarOffice 5.2 ● Integrated to the network ● Linux/Windows application servers
  8. 8. Experiences ● It worked! And it till work in 2010! ● The users could change from PC to thin clients. ● The StartOffice 5.2 ● had no Hungarian menus, (we translated) ● had no Hungarian spell checker ● it was a not the same than MS Office. But our users could change! (on going training programs) ● There were no migration problem at that time. :)
  9. 9. MS 2. The Pest Central Dist- rict Court of justice in 2003. ● In 2003-2004 we had to change the old PC-s at the district courts. ● We calculated that we can by ● 110 PC with MSOffice and ● 195 PC (80 more) if we chose OO.org ● The decision was we go with oo.org.
  10. 10. MS 2. Why we could do it in 2003? ● 18th and 19th District Court of Justice's thin- client and Star/OpenOffice.org based system was working. ● The OO.Org user base in Hungary reached the critical mass. ● The FSF.hu localization project had it's results. Since 2000 the Hungarian community (with the support of the government) made very good work for us. ● We had commercial supporting partner too. (Novell)
  11. 11. MS 2. The Pest Central Dist- rict Court of justice in 2003. ● Headcount: 747 ● 334 judges, secretary, drafter ● 367 clerks ● 260 old PC (~500 in 2010) ● 100 local printer ● 14 network printer
  12. 12. Experiences ● For technical reason we had to do, a one weekend change project. ● On Monday the users could change from their old PC/MsOffice to new PC-s with OO.org ● The OO.org at that time: ● had Hungarian menus, it were localized ● had Hungarian spell checker (it was better than, the MS Office had!) So our users could change! (we held ongoing training programs) ● There were no real migration problem.
  13. 13. Experiences OO.org training ● In 2003/2004 we had to train for oo.org hundreds of users. ● The solution was an e-learning system (moodle) with hungarian ECDL compatible oo.org curriculum. ● The curriculum was developed by a Hungarian company with the help of the government. ● In 2003/2004 we had no Hungarian version of the oo.org user documentation.
  14. 14. E- learning
  15. 15. Experiences Till 2003 at the Metropolitan Court, every new PC or thin client set in operation with openoffice.org!
  16. 16. M3. The Labour Court in 2005. ● The Labour court was moved to a new building. ● We set in operation 90 dual boot (Linux/Windows) PC-s, with certainly OO.org ● The Linux environment was based on NLD, and it was integrated into the country wide network. ● The change to OO.org on every PC went trouble free. ● This was the 3. building in which we used only OO.org.
  17. 17. Experiences ● The permanent revolution (Lenin:) is the our friend. ● We need ongoing word processor courses - not concrete product courses. ● Today there are good documentations, e-larning tools and curriculums, so the training is not problem!
  18. 18. Experiences ● Oppositionals ● The “lazy “ sysops. ● The “lazy” programmers. ● and the users who were trained to the use of a concrete product. ● Technical problems ● The features in ODF. ODF register the printer you used (It is solved in oo.org 3.0) ● Old winword “templates”, used till the winword 2.0
  19. 19. Experiences ● Till 2003 at the Metropolitan Court we set in order every PC/ Thin Client with OO.org ● In 2008 only the 12 % of the workplaces used MS Office! ● In 2010-2011 we plan to reach the 5%! ● In the country wide information network, on all the courts in Hungary, the 56% the used Office applications is OO.org(!) in 2010!
