Triumph and disaster: Two migrations to OpenOffice [28789]
Simon Phipps Sorts Out the Experiences of Munich vs. Freiburg RE: Microsoft to LibreOffice

Simon Phipps analyzed a tale of two migrations -- Microsoft to LibreOffice. One resulted in a successful, cost-effective move; the other in a costly reversion to Word 2000. Freiburg, Germany was the site of the unhappy outcome; Munich the locale where things went right. Phipps speculates that Freiburg had one thing in mind: cost cutting -- an invitation to failure. Munich invested in training and securing freedom from proprietary constraints. Moreover, Munich's migration was categorical. Freiburg's was piecemeal, with some users opting out of the migration altogether. Phipps cautions against relying too heavily on the possibility of "interoperability" in productivity migrations.
