ABSTRACT
Beaumont Hospital, one of Ireland's oldest, employs 3,000 staff and has substantial IT requirements. As with many other organizations worldwide, Beaumont's IT budget has significantly decreased since 2000 in the wake of Y2K preparation costs. The overall IT environment has heterogeneous application platforms and associated servers, with approximately 1,000 desktop machines to support. To address the hospital's IT needs, Beaumont is developing and deploying open source software (OSS) systems. By implementing OSS, Beaumont expects to save over 20 million over five years.
