PloneGov goals

The objectives are to deliver tools for public administrations and on-line web services to citizens most effectively and efficiently by reducing or eliminating the duplication of effort between Public Organizations through sharing and collaboration. We enable governments to benefit from greater technological independence and together build tools that are truly suited to their own needs.

PloneGov success results from a close collaboration between public organizations, open source communities and Zea Partners, an international non-profit network for companies building open source solutions.
