Recently I got a client(from Small Business Segment), here in Mumbai, who wanted to implement Office Automation, ERP , Employee Management,I.T. and Operations Management completely on Open Source. We had a formal meeting to discuss the stuff out. Since I have been quite proficient with Open Source technologies and projects for last few years and I have literally fallen in love with them, I suggested him some immediate solutions for his day to day tasks and activities.
Finally after the meeting , he asked me to prepare a proposal for the same. So I sat out to write a proposal , I did some research , evaluated some more applications and tools and based out of what I got as results , I came up with my proposal.
