    The meeting was organised in the prestigious Sala delle Colonne of Palazzo Marini, kindly granted by the Camera dei Deputati (Chamber of Deputies).

    About 80 people attended the meeting and another 95 followed the meeting by streaming.

    CMDBuild Day 2014 was introduced by Paolo Coppola, Member of Parliament, who also participated in the first CMDBuild Day as council member for Innovation in the Municipality of Udine.

    Tecnoteca, maintainer of CMDBuild, presented the trends in diffusion of the project, the new functions that are going to be released with the upcoming version 2.2 and the developments that are forecast in the months following.

    The interventions of Chamber of Deputies and Senate of the Republic described how CMDBuild is used in both branches of the Italian Parliament.

    After that it was illustrated how CMDBuild is used by other institutions, among them Italian Ministry of Interior, Invitalia – the National Agency for Inward Investment Promotion and Enterprise Development – University of Bologna, Tuscany Regional Council, AGSM Verona, Serco Ltd, Emilia Romagna Region, CSI Piemonte, Piaggio SpA.

    A common topic discussed by these organisations was the implementation of  Service Desk solutions based on the workflow system of CMDBuild.

    A new open source product, openMAINT, was also presented during the meeting. Realized by Tecnoteca and based on CMDBuild, openMAINT is an open source solution for the Property & Facility Management.

    All slides and videos of CMDBuild Day are available on the event's page.

    They include important case histories about the use of CMDBuild. We suggest you to consult the ones closer to your needs, in order to learn how to use the system.

    We are thankful to the technical operators and to the staff granted by the Chamber of Deputies. They supported us in order to reach a great success; after that, they provided the videos recorded during the meeting.
