European Public Sector Switches on to Open Standards

IBM today announced a range of new deals that will allow government agencies across Europe to opt in to the benefits of open standards software.
Building on recent ground breaking engagements, such as IBM's framework agreement with the German Ministry of the Interior, these new Linux contracts
will allow a variety of European public sector services--from police forces to tax departments, universities and pension providers--to lower their IT
costs, improve the responsiveness of their technology and to create new revenue opportunities for local business communities.
