Created by bdu on Mon, 05/13/2013 - 16:34
The Ghana-India Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence in ICT (AITI-KACE) is organising the next Technology Transformation Seminars (TTS) focused on Using Open Source Tools for Work on Thursday 16th May 2013. The TTS' are geared towards bringing innovations and emerging issues in ICT to the knowledge of the public and interest groups.
The Open Source Initiative defines Open Source Software as “computer software which is distributed along with the source code used to create it, under a special licence which allows users to study, change and improve the software.” Generally, OSS' is created in a collaborative way within the public domain with a shared intellectual property, and is very often made available free of charge.
At this seminar you will learn about the industries and professionals that will benefit from Open Source tools. Find out how your business, school, church, hospital, organisation can increase performance for free or at relatively lower costs using open source school management, Human Resource Management, Customer Relations Management, Accounting, Church Management, Procurement Management systems, and other software and tools.
Frederick Yeboah, FOSSFA Lead and Prince Kpasra (BLO, AITI-KACE) will make presentations on the subject. The Moderator will be Dorothy K. Gordon Director-General of the Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence in ICT.
Join us at the AITI-KACE to discover the benefits of using open source tools as businesses, institutions and as individuals.
