Novell Support for ODF


December 6, 2005 11:41 am





Novell has been working closely with the State of Massachusetts for some time on its Enterprise Reference Technical Model, the most visible piece of which is the state’s decision to adopt Open Document Format (ODF) as its default document format moving forward. We’re a strong supporter of ODF, and believe it presents a compelling alternative not just for Massachusetts, but for any organization with long-term document retention requirements.Novell has weighed in officially on the debate over ODF, including this testimony submitted to the Massachusetts Senate Post Audit and Oversight Committee, which has been discussing the issue.Novell also has recently gained a seat on the OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications Technical Committee, the group leading the work on developing an XML-based file format specification for office applications.We’ll continue to work to publicize the business benefits of open standards and open source. Open is in our corporate tag line, so you can be sure we’re fighting for ODF
