Arthur G. Grant replied to the topic What Are Open Source’s Road Blocks? How Do We Overcome Them? in the forum Open Source Software in Government 10 years ago
Roland Touche, my friend. I didn’t notice that the a strictly proprietary solution was being applied for this event. But yes I believe what I said about knowledge base. People who believe find ways, and like most I have personal systems I can use when my business systems let me down. I have to offer full disclousure, I am not a government employee, I am a defense contractor employee. What I can say is we see a lot of work from our government customer to overcome platform silo’s. Most of road blocks we find aren’t so much cultural as habit. I think you will find by habit proprietary platforms were selected, now that you have been so kind as to point it out maybe they can fix it. What you didn’t do was define what system you would like to see them share the event on?
