The General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways operates from its head-quarters in Warsaw (approx. 550 employees) and 16 voivodeship offices which manage 104 local units: regional offices and road laboratories. A problem GDDKiA had not been able to solve for years was the distribution of software within the dispersed organization. When at the end of 2011 the IT department of GDDKiA faced the prospective of migration of workstations using Windows XP to Windows 7, the matter of software distribution, which at the time had been "Suspended", returned. The prospective of migration to Windows 7 revealed a strong need to put software management in order-not only of Microsoft software, but also of those of other providers. In the case of GDDKiA, there were several dozens of them.
