SIA Autentica becomes a member of LATA
SIA Autentica has become a member of Latvian Open Technology Association (LATA), because the association promotes open source software and defends the interests of companies that use it; as to a company, which provides services to public sector institutions, it is important to us that ICT procurement process is fair and transparent, and we urge authorities to publish data in open formats to make them usable in IT solutions.
LATA unites organisations and individuals, including information technology providers and users who consider that they, their organisations and the whole society will economically benefit from broader use of open source solutions in Latvia. Applying open standards to information exchange and storage is necessary provision for free competition in the market of IT solutions between commercial and open source software.
LATA members and associated members are minded to altogether contribute to make the environment favourable for those Latvian IT users and providers who use open source software, programming tools and components thus promoting economy of resources expendable on IT matters and returning them to Latvia’s national economy.
