ODOT Moves Licensing System to OSS

Cooper Stevenson writes "Novell announced [recently] that the Department of Transportation for the State of Oregon is migrating critical components of its driver\'s license management system to Novell\'s SUSE(R) LINUX Enterprise Server running on an IBM zSeries mainframe. By switching to Linux*, the Department of Transportation has increased the system uptime to 99 percent while significantly reducing related IT administration costs. Adopting an open source solution has enabled the Department to realize a 30 percent reduction in software costs, benefiting Oregon tax payers."

Special congratulations are in order for the dedicated staff at ODOT who made this happen.

Complete story."
