Paris, September 28, 2016 - OW2, the global community for open source infrastructure software, announces the winners of OW2con'16 Best Project Awards.

  • Quality Award: Lutece receives the OW2 Quality Award for the high quality level of its processes and of its documentation which led the project to get recognized as a Mature Project of the OW2 Code Base earlier this year. 
  • Community Award: Prelude receives the OW2 Community Award for its success with the IDMEF and IODEF standards which not only got referenced in the Referentiel General d'Interoperabilité in France, but also sparked interest of multiple OW2 project leaders who are considering to develop Prelude agents complying with these standards. 
  • Market Award: FusionDirectory wins the OW2 Market Award for its recent success with its customer the TGIR Huma­-Num (Très Grande Infrastructure Numérique) for whom OpenSides has set up a centralized solution for the management of business applications across a large number of sites.
