Jordanian government will use open source Ingres database

By Staff

Committing the country to becoming a hub for the adoption of open source in the Middle East, the Jordanian government has signed a deal with Ingres to help promote open source usage in the country.

After signing a memorandum of understanding with Ingres, Samer Shamayleh, director of strategic agreements at the Jordanian Ministry of Information and Communications Technology has said that "Our agreement with Ingres will help us to raise awareness and create a general understanding among government agency leaders about the value of open source software," and that "Open source allows IT systems to be built without expensive upfront investments in license fees and, with Ingres, without compromising on critical needs for privacy, security, and reliability that are crucial to our government agencies."
