Two thousand open source applications for the public sector

Filed under
OSS

The European Union's Open Source Observatory and Repository (OSOR.eu) as of today is offering public administrations access to more than two thousand free and open source applications.

The OSOR is a platform where public administrations can exchange information and experiences and collaborate in developing free and open source software. The platform has managed to bring together more than 2000 such open source software applications in just sixteen months after its launch.

The most recent projects added to the OSOR repository include Zorb, an extension to the open source network monitoring tool Nagios, Comerzzia, meant to aid public administrations in providing services to SMEs and Genericoder, an open source converter for XML files.

Francisco García Morán, Director of Informatics at the European Commission, welcomed the milestone of 2000 projects. "I officially opened the site in October 2008 at the Open Source World Conference in Malaga."
