The objectives of Public Sector OSS Case Study Awards are:
The OSS ecosystem can be defined as a community of 3 different entities namely Public Sector, R&D and business communities, together with their OSS interest, viewed as a system of interacting and interdependent relationships that leverage existing resources in a collaborative effort to achieve mutual and synergistic benefits.
This year emphasis is on impact made by the OSS projects in nurturing and boosting the local OSS ecosystem. Therefore, it is very important for all government agencies and IPTAs to specifically share the contribution brought about by their OSS Projects.
OSS projects are expected to portray not only in-house software/application development but how their OSS solutions help stimulate and boost the entire OSS ecosystem in Malaysia.
A template for submission is provided. It is recommended that the main sections are kept as it is, however additional sub-sections can be added. Submission in Bahasa Malaysia are also accepted provided that they follow the same formats. English is encouraged, as these case studies will also be used to showcase and share Malaysian OSS implementations to international audiences.
The submission deadline will be on 5.30 p.m, 7th September 2010.
