Major news today:
Denmark is the first country in the world where Microsoft deploys an entirely new policy of openness. This means that millions of documents can be easily and effortlessly exchanged between different IT-systems.
– The new openness around the standards are expected to enhance competition in the software field, says Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation Helge Sander at the presentation of Microsoft’s initiative at a press briefing in Copenhagen today, November 17th.
This is a major step for Microsoft, and we’re rather proud in the office to have been helping them take this step. It’s going to be interesting to see how the rest of the world reacts to this news. The Legal Notice is bound to cause some discussions.
