Award for Open Source Application for Analysing Health Data

,----[ Quote ]
| Health Atlas Ireland, an Open Source application to analyse health related
| datasets using geographical information systems (GIS) and statistical
| software, was one of twenty projects that were given the 'Prime Minister
| Public Service Excellence Award'. The awards were handed out last month by
| Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern.
| Health Atlas Ireland is based on the Open Source content management system
| Plone and the Open Source application server Zope. It was selected for the
| Award because of its capacity to innovate and its technical perfection,
| writes Zeapartners, a network of companies involved in Plone and Zope. "This
| innovative Irish project greatly improves the quality and the efficiency of
| services delivered by health services."


Everything appears to be moving in this direction. Proprietary software becomes
less relevant by the day.
