Bernama.com, the Malaysian national news agency, reports that the Malaysian Administrative Modernisation and Management Planning Unit’s (MAMPU) Open Source Competency Centre (OSCC) is organising the Malaysian Government Open Source Software Conference (MyGOSSCON) 2012 on 26th and 27th November 2012.
The OSCC has been leading the implementation of open source software in Malaysian public sector organisations in line with the Malaysian Public Sector OSS Master Plan.
It is now in the early stage of phase 3, leading and guiding the Malaysian public towards self-reliance so that it can develop and manage open source software on its own.
To date 99% of all government agencies have used, developed and implemented open source software is some way, be that in infrastructure, on the desktop or as application.
“This third phase builds on the successes of the previous two phases and includes a Change Management programme focusing on the agencies’ development of relevant human resource expertise to implement open source software initiatives independently,” OSCC said.
