Market Readiness Synthesis

LUTECE was originally developed in 2001 by the City of Paris as a platform to facilitate the implementation of coherent websites and web services across its administrations and districts. It has grown to a mature extensible system with some 500 plug-ins. The core development team is comprised of 10-15 developers financially supported by the City of Paris. The situation could evolve as several major cities use or plan to use LUTECE such as Lyon, Marseille, Nice and Budapest.
