Raising Awareness About BSD in the Government of Canada
The only significant barrier to use of xBSD operating systems in the Canadian Government seems to be a lack of awareness among IT decision-makers about this set of options, and of the related xBSD support services offered by suppliers. Open source off-the-shelf solutions are deployed in a diversity of production environments throughout the Government of Canada. Treasury Board Secretariat has stated that "existing Canadian federal legislation, agreements and policies accommodate a wide variety of business models for public sector software acquisition, use, production and distribution. Accordingly, software solutions used in government come under many license types, including certified 'open source' and 'free/libre' software licenses." In this session, participants will discuss ways to raise awareness of the several BSD operating systems available to the Government of Canada.
