Open Apps: Open Source released as Open Data
We are finishing a decree project to enable openness and reuse of applications developed for Basque Government's Public Sector (If you would like to know a little bit more about it you can check the opinion published at Free Software Foundation Blog, for example,http://blogs.fsfe.org/gerloff/2012/06/04/common-sense-in-the-basque-coun...). We plan to publish or release these Open Applications (Open Apps) into Public Domain following Open Data mechanisms. To do so we are working on identifying needed Metadata and we have started from standardization proposals currently under development at IEEE and JoinUP, supported by CENATIC.
I am planning to attend next Digital Agenda Assembly and I would like to have the opportunity to introduce the approach of this Decree for Openness and Reuse of Applications and the advantages it will create for Public and Private Sectors.
I would also like to share preliminary thoughts/ideas about how to manage the resulting big amount of information that will appear as soon as Open Apps will be realeased into the Public Directory and how to manage such a Big Data in order to improve their reusability and their influence in order to start also thinking of a Design for Reuse mathodology to be applied on it in a neas future.
