The FOSS BUZZ Campaign
On May 17, 2013, Anova launched its initiative the FOSS BUZZ campaign on Facebook, in order to promote Free Open Source Software, and since then, Anova has been organizing several orientation events, contests, programs and activities sponsoring the FOSS BUZZ campaign .
In 1996, Anova was formed to provide quality information and communication technology services to the market.
Anova has been interested in Free Open Source Software technology, Linux and their applications, due to the numerous advantages and capabilities they offer. Since 2013, Anova has been certified as the only LPI Approved Training Partner in Egypt, authorized to organize training courses preparing for LPIC certificates.
Its cooperation with a high-caliber group of professional trainers has enabled it to provide top international standard curricula in different fields of knowledge. However, the company integrates and customizes additional non-standard educational services specially designed to fulfill business and employees needs.
Since the launch of Richard Stallman’s GNU project, open source software is continuously increasing.
The evolution of smart mobile phones (Android and Apple) with their wide range of open source software makes users of ICT less attached to paid software, and more comfortable to migrate from a platform to another, especially as most open source software offers a cross-platform portability.
Similarly, the use of open source software (rather free) responds to the increasing need to rationalize resources and control the institutional ICT bills, due to the global economic crisis, particularly in Egypt after the revolution.
The crisis forced the Egyptian government to decide use open source software in government institutions. This decision will have a significant impact on training needs and human skills on open source software.
For these reasons, we can estimate outrightly that the promotion of open source software in Egypt would have a high probability of success.
This promotion is provided by organizing open days to educate beneficiaries, knowledge transfer workshops and various activities.
