Swedish National Police Board (SNPB) is the law enforcement agency for the country of Sweden. The SNPB wanted to replace costly proprietary software with reliable open source solutions to reduce acquisition and ongoing costs for the organization's IT department. As it explored open source solution alternatives to its costly proprietary software, the SNPB IT department embarked on a pilot proof-of-concept project to test the viability of using open source solutions within its organization. Looking to replace its existing BEA WebLogic application server with an open source alternative, the SNPB saw only one realistic option, JBoss Enterprise Application Platform.
