| DCM Engineering, which has a turnover of Rs 245 crores, is running its
| core application mySAP Enterprise Version 5.0 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
| Rakesh Dhamani, chief financial officer and company secretary, DCM
| Engineering Ltd says, "We wanted a very robust and a stable platform
| for mySAP that does not escalate our TCO in the long run. The amount
