KUALA LUMPUR, April 23 (Bernama) — The Malaysian Administrative Modernisation and Management Planning Unit (Mampu) expects all government agencies to implement open source software (OSS) by end of next year.

To date, 462 agencies from a total of 720 agencies have implemented OSS, which managed to provide a savings of more than RM47 million, said Mampu deputy director of ICT (information and communications technology) policy and planning division, Tan King Ing.

“We had utilised the OSS development model for rapid development of product at a lower cost by building upon existing solutions,” she said at a media briefing here today.

Eight OSS products have been developed for use by all public sector agencies, she told reporters.

To further contribute to the industry, Mampu and Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) will host the 2009 MSC Malaysia Open Source Conference from May 31 to June 3.
