When evaluating the product compatibility with the existing IT-infrastructure, the contracting authorities do not often opt for open-source software, because historically the state sector was Windows-oriented.

At the same time, the current state information policy and the strategy of a certain institution or authority are considered. Consequently, the choice can fall on an open-source or a proprietary software – it depends on the case.
