Open source software awards season is upon us and open source ERP vendors are taking home some important awards. A few weeks ago, during OSCON 2008, Sourceforge announced its 2008 Community Choice Award winners. Then, Infoworld awarded open source projects with its BOSSIE, followed by Linuxworld 2008 Product Excellence Awards.
Several open source ERP projects were declared winners in this years’ LinuxWorld contest. xTuple won Best Business Application (nominated along with Concursive CRM and Drupal content management). Congratulation to Ned and the rest of the xTuple team for winning the award!.
Openbravo won in the Best Integration Solution category for its up and coming Openbravo Network Edition, the companies’ latest ERP offering. We hope to be able to provide you with some insight into Oepnbravo Network soon. Stay tuned to our updated on Openbravo Network Edition by registering to our RSS feed.
One thing I found to be odd was SugarCRM, the most popular open source CRM solution, to be a nominee in the Best Desktop Solution, along with Ubuntu, the Linux distribution. Ubuntu is the obvious winner of that category, but Sugar is no desktop solution- it’s just a very good CRM solution.
