The Flexibility of Open Source - Plone in the Public Sector

A talk given by Matt Hamilton, Technical Director of Netsight.

This talk was part of the British Computer Society (BCS) event "Public Funds in the UK: Open Source for Document and Content Management" held in London on 7th January 2010.

The talk is a case study of two specific public sector clients of the Open Source WCM, Plone: Warwickshire Police, and a large educational portal.

The Flexibility of Open Source: A Case Study of a large Corporate Intranet

The advantages of Open Source systems go beyond simple cost savings. Content management by its very nature requires a significant level of customisation and integration to meet business requirements. By not prohibiting the inspection and modification of the source code, Open Source enables a level of flexibility not available with proprietary systems.

This talk will present a case study of the process one corporation, Belron®, went through in the development of a corporate Intranet based on Plone. Belron® is the world’s largest vehicle glass repair and replacement company, owning some of the best known brands in the industry including Carglass®, Autoglass®, O’Brien® and Safelite®. Belron® employs more than 19, 500 people working in 28 countries worldwide.

In this talk you will see how the flexibility of Open Source allowed an initial modest Intranet to adapt and grow over time to an organisation’s evolving requirements, and the development of multiple sub-sites, specific business processes and multilingual support. You will also see how Open Source’s licensing model allows un-fettered growth and deployment of the Intranet to multiple countries.
