With deploying the open source software Development center, it is now possible to define necessary standards for different types of localized software.
“This center is considered as a starting point for a great body of activities,” said Eng. Hakim Javadi, Deputy Minister of ITC, in the opening ceremony of the Open Source Software Development Center and the Web Research Center.
“The Open Source Software Center will be responsible to train, to issue certifications, to informe and advertise, to perform R&D activities, to approve open source software, to make policies and to set related protocols,” he added.
Mentioning the successful experiences of other countries, such as Brazil and India, in the open source software area, Eng. Hakim Javadi declared that Iran is ready to cooperate in the open source area, with different sectors, despite heavy sanctions.
