Om Logistics switches to Ubuntu
This operating system tends to run applications quicker than windows on the same type of hardware, this move also saves hardware upgrading costs.
Om Logistics Ltd introduced Linux way back in 2001, when there were 40 branches. Today in all 450+ branches of (OLL) the Linux Version UBUNTU 14.04 LTS has been redesigned that make working more efficient than ever in our IT infrastructure.
Ajay Singhal, CMD, OM Group said, “Though, becoming familiar with the Linux operating system requires patience as well as a strong learning zeal. Linux is sometimes behind the curve when it comes to brand new hardware compatibility. The kernel contributors and maintainers work hard at keeping the kernel up to date. We have always supported changes for betterment of workplace”.
He also told that using Linux in our organization has helped from the backbone servers to the desktops because Linux tends to run applications quicker than windows on the same type of hardware, this move also saves hardware upgrading costs. Linux developers have done a commendable work at creating alternatives to popular applications, and have good reason to celebrate when they honour the open-source operating system. Even critics are admitting that this operating system has fundamentally changed the way software is developed and proven the viabilty of open standards.”
SK Goel, VP, Om Logistics Ltd, “We started with a team of 4 IT personnel to manage 20 PCs. Today we have around 2000 PCs running Linux with approximately 12 number of IT personnel". And from a turnover of 70 crores we have reached 1000 crore. Now when the accounting system having been shifted to Linux, there is still a need to maintain few separate systems for maintaining compatibility with older data. Our internally modified Linux OS systems allow incredible work experience to company personnel. We engineer seamless experience for our users across all branches that are unparallel in the industry, as I have mentioned in my earlier interviews. The OS system has been redesigned and refined with a fresh look where controls are clearer, smarter and easier for the end users. The Linux operating system has been around since the early nineties and has managed to stay secure in the realm of widespread viruses, spyware and adware for all these years.”
RK Gupta, AGM (F&A) OM Logistics Ltd said, “I have been using the Linux OS system for the last ten years. I got surprised when friends tells me about the loss of data and other problems related to the computers.”
Akash Bansal, Head, Logistics, Om Logistics Ltd said, “Linux is considered to be a more reliable operating system, sometimes running without failure for months at a time. Linux has taken the tech industry by storm and become a commercial success.”
Sunil Mehra, Manager, Corporate Communications, OM Logistics said, “OM Logistics Ltd has business operations in over 80-85 countries and continuing endeavouring to build multinational businesses that achieve profitable growth through excellence and innovation.
