MyGIFOSS is prepared as a supplement to the Malaysian Government Interoperability Framework version 1.0 (MyGIF), August 2003.
The intention of this document is to provide a guide for government agencies in the adoption of, and migration to, OSS within their ICT framework. It addresses issues concerning the use of OSS and proprietary software, integration of OSS with legacy systems, the exchange of information and data between heterogeneous systems, and compliance to published open standards where applicable. The emphasis for addressing the issues above is to ensure interoperability between systems and applications.
