ODF alliance

The ODF Alliance for the promotion of the Open Document Format (ODF) was launched in spring 2006 and started with about 140 members from 30 countries. The ODF Alliance is primarily concerned with governments and public authorities so that they use the ODF format instead of Microsoft's document format, the Office Open XML.

As it is in these institutions that the conversion of information and records from paper to electronic form is taking place, access to important information and documents will be challenged in the medium term. Since the standardized ODF format ensures access and exchange of information and documents regardless of the platform and applications, the ODF format lends itself as a future document format.

The ODF Alliance informs those involved in administration and IT about the future-proof cross-platform storage of documents.
