An overview of the introduction of the ODF standard and Apache OpenOffice in an Italian public administration with more than 3000 users.
In this presentation Giovanni Grazia will review the main technical issues encountered and the solutions deployed, including:
- configuration of OpenOffice, complemented with community developed and custom extensions to help users in their everyday work
- interoperability with Sharepoint through the webdav protocol and the fix we developed in Apache OpenOffice for the correct interaction
- an extension to simplify choosing the right format for document exchange, in relation to our ODF census project in Italy.
- alternative OOXML to ODF conversion when native AOO conversion is not satisfactory
