"A representative of the Spanish Ministry of
Presidency, Miguel Angel Amutio Gomez, started the day explaining
the crucial points of the Spanish law 11/2007: the right for
everybody to use whatever digital technology they like best and the
obligation for all Public Administrations to avoid discrimination
of citizens based on their technological choices. In order to make
this possible, the law stresses the importance of open standards,
setting the goal that all e-government services and documents
become available at least through such standards. In this context,
Amutio said, the Spanish National Interoperability Framework (NIF)
that A. Barrionuevo presented in the first day becomes an essential
legal test for all Spanish organizations.
"Besides the law itself, the most interesting part of this
presentation were the results of an analysis made using the NIF: it
turns out that 30% to 40% of the about 400 digital standards
already used for e-government in Spain comes from (in decreasing
order): IETF, OASIS, W3C, ISO, and Microsoft."
