ING Life Adopts Open Source To Expand Business

| "When I first heard of the migration, I was very 
| apprehensive. I thought the cultural shift would 
| be very hard," says Venkat Reddy Peddolla, deputy 
| manager, customer service, Secunderabad, ING 
| Life. "My biggest fear was adapting to a whole 
| new range of changes. My level of technical 
| expertise isn't very high. Making adjustments to 
| Linux was a big deal."


Asay and Tiemann, mano a mano.

| What Matt doesnât seem to get is that this split-
| personality marketing of âwe do all this open 
| stuff, except for this scarce bit weâre charging 
| you for!â is a prize example of a house divided 
| unto itself. You canât sensibly talk about the 
| benefits of open source without contradicting 
| yourself completely when it comes to the paywall 
| behind which your proprietary software sits: 
| basically you have to fess up that the open 
| source bits are the bait.
| What Michaelâs post illustrates nicely is not 
| just a clarity of purpose, but a 100% commitment 
| to what they tell their customers: no ifs, no 
| buts, but a single compelling story. Customers 
| understand the value they offer, and thatâs why 
| they make money.

| Richard Stallman, the founder of the Free Software Foundation

| on Wednesday, wherein about 21,000 computers will see
| migration from present OS to e-Swecha across the
| state in the next one-month, they said.
