TDF White Paper Aids Migrations to LibreOffice [30337]
Outlines Comprehensive Change Management Process

The Document Foundation (TDF) has released the "LibreOffice Migration White Paper," a guide for enterprises wishing to adopt LibreOffice and other free software. The guide is framed in terms of dealing with both the technical aspects of such a migration and the resistance often encountered in the work force when long-term working habits are challenged. Developed in Open Document Format (ODF), LibreOffice is the standard document format recognized by the largest number of organizations and supported by the largest number of desktop software solutions. Legacy investments are thereby protected even as enterprises undertake migration to ODF.
