Through this brief webinar Daniel Melin will share with the audience how Sweden is promoting open standards and open source through central framework agreements. Daniel will also cover how, from a market competitive standpoint, open source and open standards enable better competition between all suppliers of ICT solutions. This focus enables reuse of software based solutions, a more open public sector and long term cost reductions.   If you are a public procurer, a representative of the ICT industry, or if you are simply interested in the topic of how open standards and open source can be promoted through public procurement, join the conversation with Daniel Melin, in order to discover one way to promote open standards and open source to avoid lock-in situations.   ICT procurement specialist Daniel Melin from the Swedish National Procurement Services has been actively involved in promoting the use of open standards and open source as a method for reducing lock-in effects within the Swedish public sector since 2009. Daniel has been in the business of ICT for 25 years, both as a user, a vendor, a consultant as well as within procurement.   Daniel was in the advisory board to the European Commission's (DG Information Society) study Guidelines for public procurement of ICT systems” published in 2012. Daniel is also deeply involved in the use of cloud computing within the public sector. He has been the Swedish representative in the Nordic Council of Ministers working group for cloud computing, he contributes to Cloud Sweden's legal group and frequently advises the Swedish government about issues related to cloud computing.   Relevant articles you might want to read before the webinar:
