Birmingham City Council

An implementation of open source software across the library service at Birmingham City Council (BCC) has demonstrated that open source software is a viable alternative to proprietary software.

The library service has piloted, and at the time of writing is in the process of rolling out, a full open source desktop1 on its public IT facilities and the open source productivity package, OpenOffice, on its staff PCs. The project indicates that for most users, OpenOffice is a suitable tool that meets their functionality needs, although power users2 may experience more difficulties with functionality and may need to retain Microsoft Office capacity.
