A licence costs free platform

The E-government platform has been developed entirely with Open Source software. That means that the local authorities interested in adopting the application won't face any license costs or be tied into contracts.  Budgets are shrinking but our open source commercial solutions help local government to serve citizens while significantly reducing costs.

In Italy special laws have been passed to facilitate the exchange of software and knowledge among the public sector. That works much better when the public offices have chosen open source components. Os software is not only free of costs but can be improved at any time and by anyone, because that is an integral part of the Open Source philosophy

GisWeb has been developing OS solutions for the public sector since the beginning, gaining skills and knowledge about GPL licenses and the advantages that (especially the public sector) can gain in adopting and sharing OS Solutions.
