Health insurer CNAMTS chooses Bull to support its Linux RedHat distributions
As part of its global Open Source strategy, French health insurance provider CNAMTS (the Caisse Nationale de l’Assurance Maladie des Travailleurs Salariés) has awarded Bull the contract to support its Linux RedHat distributions across all its technical infrastructure servers and front office applications (up to 5,000 servers in all), as well as to provide additional support services in other Open Source environments.
The three-year contract responds to CNAMTS’s requirements for professional-quality support tools and expertise in Open Source software. It includes corrective maintenance and updating services, on-line support and assistance on site, as well as audit, monitoring and technical assistance.
“We chose Bull because of its commitment to Open Source, its professional support center – which gives us access to a single contact point and personalized support – and the possibility of accessing the full spectrum of the Group’s expertise in Open Source software,” explained Maryvonne Cronier, CNAMTS’ IS Director.
For Bull, this is another new contract for its Open Access service – the support element of its Open Energy offering. Launched in November 2005, Open Energy is a comprehensive service offering based on a professional, industrial approach and responding to the full range of requirements in the deployment life cycle for Open Source solutions: from porting to development, and including integration, support and change management services.
