The Open Source Development Labs (OSDL), a global consortium of leading technology companies dedicated to accelerating the adoption of Linux, has announced that NTT DATA INTELLILINK, a subsidiary of NTT DATA, one of the largest systems integrators in Japan, has joined the Lab as its newest member.

NTT DATA INTELLILINK, a leading systems integrator in Japan that partners with NTT DATA and the NTT group companies on enterprise systems support, was an early champion of open source software solutions. The firm has expertise in open source and Linux-based systems, including feature and performance tuning, deployment, office automation, data base implementation, Web serving, middleware and more.

"NTT DATA INTELLILINK supports open source-based system development and deployment and we recognize that adoption of open source software for the enterprise and carrier system is indispensable in the current and future systems integration and carrier business," said Dr. Kou Miyake, President and CEO of NTT DATA INTELLILINK Corp. "However, we think that there are several challenges for open source software in mission critical systems. To solve these issues, common understanding of these issues and feedback to the development communities are important. We believe that OSDL provides a unique bridge between users, vendors and open source communities."

NTT DATA INTELLILINK plans to also participate in OSDL's initiatives driving Carrier Grade Linux and Data Center Linux, Miyake said.

"We're pleased to have NTT DATA INTELLILINK, one of Japan's most important systems integration companies, working with us as a new member to advance Linux in the world's second-largest economy," said Stuart Cohen, CEO of OSDL. "We look forward to NTT DATA INTELLILINK's contributions working with OSDL, customers and the Linux development community as we broaden our commitment in Japan."
