APLAWS project

Sent by Steve Williams on 12 January 2004 15:03

taken from the applaws website
APLAWS was one the 25 funded Local Government Online (LGOL) Pathfinder Projects, which aimed at
exploring and developing new ways of implementing e-government.  
The APLAWS Pathfinder developed an open source Content Management System that can be freely adopted
by any local authority in the UK
<hmmmmm - from memory two of the members who worked on the original project took 'Arsdigita' open
source CMS on board (which then went down and was then consumed by redhat) and created a CMS version
that they called Aplaws CMS - which they have subsequently gone on to market in the UK. This was
more an extension of the original project.>

At least two of the organisations involved in the original work (RNIB and Age Concern) subsequently
purchased a different CMS.....though it seems as if their names have now been removed from the
Aplaws website :-) .....

IMO you have to seperate the original project from what is now a stand alone CMS. The website has
been considerably changed to reflect the success it has had in the local government environment....

can't speak from an APLAWS members point of view (insider knowledge), but for us
we've benefited from both the standards published and the profile of the project
to legitimise information management standards in local government.  So hurrah!
