Israk Technology is proud to participated in Malaysian Government Open Source Software Conference MyGOSSCON 2011 for the 5th year (consecutively). It was the biggest Government Open source software (OSS) conference ever held with turnout of more than 1,000, the highest number of participants compared to previous three similar events.
This combined event has brought together an excellent mix of CEOs, CIOs, CTOs, industry leaders, academicians, open source communities and government officials, providing a solid platform to share ideas knowledge, experience and discuss current issues and challenges in enhancing efficiency and productivity of business and public service delivery.
We have successfully put together a meaningful event that covered a wide variety of topics, aligned with the conference theme New Economy of ICT and Open Technologies Empower Digital Transformation Through Sustained Creativity and Innovation. Another significant mark in this year's conference was the revealing of Phase III – Self Reliance of the Malaysian Public Sector Open Source Software Master Plan.
This year's conference was a thriving affair for winners of MyGOSS 2011 Award; an award to recognize and acknowledge organizations in their efforts in implementing open source software to promote service excellence and effective use of ICT.
In line with our initiatives to promote creativity and innovation, an International Open Source Solution Creative Multimedia Competition was held in conjugation with the conference. After spending 12 solid hours creating and developing their creative master pieces, the competition saw the best team walking away with the handsome cash reward.
Also held in conjunction with the conference was the National OpenOffice.org Competition 2011; a competition opened to all primary and secondary students all over Malaysia to introduce and encourage the use of open source software. Best three schools from both primary and secondary received their awards in a brief presentation during the conference opening ceremony.
We believe this conference has provided overwhelming opportunities in enhancing technologies and exploitation of knowledge that is important in enhancing the country's Public Service delivery.
