Deploying Open Office

Jens Ole Hald
works at the municipality of Hanstholm, Denmark. He is in charge of the IS department and the project that evaluates Star Office for use in Hanstholm.

We will consider using Star Office as an alternate office package to the MS Office suite. This presentation will cover the evaluation that we are performing to determine if it is possible to switch to Star Office. The presentation will detail foreseen problems with the Star Office implementation, the time lines and mile stones, and practical problems with the implementation and solutions to those. The evaluation was undertaken with a number of different perspectives: from management; from the IS department; from super users; from end users.
