The three nominees for the 'Prémio Abertura' 2020 Award are already known.

This is an annual award given by ESOP to entities that have highlighted through the use and adoption of Open Source technologies, or that have contributed to its dissemination and dynamism in the last year.

In previous editions, the award was presented at Open Source Lisbon, the largest Open Source event in Portugal and this year will be no exception.
This year, the Open Source Lisbon 2020 event will take place on November 11, for the first time in a virtual format, and ESOP will present the winner of the 'Prémio Abertura' 2020 Award at this extraordinary event.

The nominated projects are:

Banco de Portugal,
with the implementation of a CI/CD solution and Container orchestration based on Red Hat Openshift.

In this project, SYONE and Red Hat were responsible for the design and implementation of a CI/CD solution and Container orchestration to support the Banco de Portugal Statistics Portal. The solution was implemented using several Open Source technologies such as Python, Django, Red Hat Openshift, Jenkins and Red Hat Container Native Storage.

Produced by Banco de Portugal and several national and international statistical entities, more than 300 thousand statistical series on the Portuguese economy and the euro area economy are disseminated and made available on this new BPstat portal.

The new BPstat presents a navigation logic much simpler and more intuitive, integrating statistical information, texts and infographic content for a better understanding of the published data; on the portal, the user can search, access and cross-check statistical data from different domains and subdomains, and can also build graphics, export content and share information with other users.

OMIP – Pólo Português, S.G.M.R., S.A,
with the OMIP (OMI-Polo Português) and OMIClear websites.

The OMIP and OMIClear portals relied on JAVALI's know-how to respond to the need to unify the image and structure of their websites. For this, the concept of multisite was developed and implemented, with a more current design and a more intuitive and organized content structure. The Iberian Electricity Market Operator (OMI) is structured in two companies holding shares, OMEL and OMIP SGPS. Each company holds part of the two management companies for the electricity market in the Iberian Peninsula, namely: OMIE, the daily and intraday market manager, and OMI-Polo Português (OMIP), the forward market manager. In turn, the management companies also hold a stake in OMIClear - Sociedade de Compensação de Mercados de Energia, SA.The open source Content Management System used for the development of this project was Drupal.
