Mar 01, 2010

The consolidated IT of the city of Munich is reporting at CeBIT 2010 on converting their workstations to Linux and OpenOffice.

The migration to the free office package was finalized for Munich. All 15,000 office PCs of the city council will work on OpenOffice, under Linux or Windows. In the context of CeBIT Open Source, city experts and the DBI service will answer questions about the migration at booth F24. On display will be their Wollmux software tool for personalized templates and forms administration.

On the Open Source Forum presentation stage in hall 2 at CeBIT, the Munich IT group will demonstrate their recipe for office migration. The talk is Friday, March 5 at 9:15 AM and will be streamed live for free by Linux Magazine Online.

The Munich Linux team will share their experiences with Linux migration in the workplace together with IBM in hall 9, booth C67. Big Blue is supporting the city project since the end of 2009 in the areas of project management and IT architecture.
