Organisation:Foundation for the Development of the Science and Technology in Extremadura, Extremadura, Spain

In January 2009 the Foundation for the Development of the Science and Technology in Extremadura started to study the potential adoption of Zimbra server. Six months later, the decision was taken: Zimbra would be installed in the public administration. Zimbra is a next-generation collaboration server that provides organizations greater overall flexibility and simplicity with integrated email, contacts, calendaring, sharing and document management plus mobility and desktop synchronization to users on any computer.

Software components / licenses:The Zimbra collaboration suite is the only application suite installed on the server, which bundles and installs, as part of the installation process, various other third party and open source software, including Apache Jetty, Postfix, OpenLDAP, and MySQL.

Main results /achieved objectives

  • Improvement of performance and effectiveness of the organisation
  • Reduction of procurement/ licensing costs
  • Promotion of open source software
  • Minimization of the need for technical support

Perspectives:At the Foundation for the Development of the Science and Technology in Extremadura they keep on using Zimbra server and the perspective for the next years is to be enhanced, expanded or replicated.
