Best of Open Source Software Awards 2008

InfoWorld’s 2008 Bossies recognize the top free and open products for business, IT, and personal productivity

If the phrase “open source software” continues to conjure images of impassioned programmers selflessly collaborating for the common good, it may be because, even as commercial interests are behind many of the most prominent projects, the results are no less inspired – and typically no less free. Yes, advanced functionality or maintenance and support may require writing a check, but freeloaders looking for high-quality software – of almost any kind – have never had it so good.

Chosen by InfoWorld Test Center editors, analysts, and reviewers, InfoWorld’s annual Best of Open Source Software awards (or Bossies, for short) celebrate the best products that open source has to offer: the best free software on the planet for businesses, their IT staffs, and their employees’ workstations.

[ See Bossie winner slideshows: Collaboration | Developer tools | Enterprise applications | Networking | Platforms and middleware | Productivity applications | Security | Storage ]

ur 2008 winners include 60 products in eight categories: enterprise applications such as CRM, ERP, BI, and reporting; collaborative applications, including mail/calendar, wiki, and social networking; desktop productivity apps from office suites to 3-D modeling; platforms and middleware, including operating systems, databases, virtualization, and SOA integration; developer tools from AJAX and rich Internet apps to Web service testing and version control; networking, including server monitoring, routing, Wi-Fi scanning, and VoIP software; security software, including firewall, IDS, disk encryption, and security testing;  and storage, including monitoring and administration, backup, and NAS.

Some of our picks were easy. For office productivity suite, what else but For network intrusion detection, what else but Snort? And for security log analysis, nothing beats Splunk. Even in areas where good options abound, sometimes one solution is head and shoulders above the rest: In CRM, Sugar; in content management, Alfresco; in IP telephony, Asterisk.

But in most categories, stiff competition made the choice difficult. Would it be JasperSoft or Pentaho for BI? Scalix or Zimbra for groupware? Compiere or Openbravo for ERP? How to select the best JavaScript framework from among the likes of Dojo, Google Web Toolkit, Prototype, Yahoo User Interface, and so many others? Choosing often wasn’t easy, but we took a close look and made our call.

In almost every category we explored, the pace of development is remarkable and products are evolving fast. A few of our 2008 winners – Sugar, Alfresco, Asterisk – are repeat champions (see Bossies 2007). But in many categories – most notably ERP and SOA middleware – 2007’s winner fails to take the 2008 prize.

Our 60 winners, and the fact that so many categories are hotly contested, are a testament to the tremendous impact that free and open source software is having across the software landscape. Although we found almost twice as many product categories to award in 2008 as in 2007, we realize we have plenty more work to do. Let us know what we missed.

Best of open source applications

Top offerings in CRM, ERP, portals, content management, and collaboration platforms

By James R. BorckMike HeckTom Yager

A hunger for lighter-weight and lower-cost sales and CRM applications has brought great success to SaaS vendors such as, and also lifted the fortunes of open source offerings in the space. Open source ERP has had a harder time breaking out, but here too there are several impressive offerings to choose from. And if you’re looking to open source for an enterprise portal, CMS, or Microsoft Exchange substitute, you will not be disappointed.

[ See Bossie winner slideshows: Applications | Networking | Platforms and Middleware | Security | Software development| Storage ]

Commercial open source pioneer SugarCRM is our top choice in CRM. Its trident of offerings – installed, hosted, and a good drop-in appliance – give IT the flexibility it needs, and the easy-to-use Ajax interface enhances user adoption. Users will also appreciate the offline client synchronization; integration with Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Word is enterprise-grade.

The proficient Sugar app is becoming polished. The recently released 5.0 beta shows off advances in charting and performance dashboards, plus a new AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) e-mail client and long-awaited field-level access controls. A new custom development kit makes it easier to develop new objects to meet vertical requirements.

Just as important, a good developer community has taken shape around SugarCRM, making a library of plug-ins and feature enhancements available for the suite – including VoIP integration.

SugarCRM has no shortage of competition from open source rivals Centric CRM, CentraView, and openCRX. The most notable of these is Java-based Centric CRM, which touts team collaboration tools for customer service and salesforce automation, as well as strong online marketing tools forged through a relationship with open source demand generation software vendor LoopFuse. A recent influx of capital from Intel won’t hurt it any, either. Long dominated by big guns such as SAP and Oracle/PeopleSoft, ERP has earned a reputation for complexity, and its proximity to the revenue pipeline discourages disruption. As a result, change happens slowly in the ERP market, making it difficult for the bright lights of open source ERP — Apache OFBiz, Compiere, ERP5, Openbravo, OpenMFG/Postbooks, and TinyERP — to shine through.

Further, none of these open source solutions yet compares with the breadth of back office functionality, usability, and integration found in today’s SaaS offerings, such as NetSuite.

Nevertheless, from the hills of Pamplona, Spain, comes a viable if unlikely candidate for many small and midsize implementations: Openbravo. Openbravo does a fine job of managing general business duties like procurement and product pricing, warehouse and inventory management, production, and financial accounting. Its MRP (materials requirement planning) and sales/CRM modules are also good, and the capability to handle multi-phase projects and partner relationships help set it apart.

Openbravo comes up light on HR, customer-to-Web, and document management, but decent BI and balanced scorecard capability in addition to a solid Java development framework for building add-ons boost its enterprise credentials. The recent addition of the JasperReports engine lets users push out professional-looking PDF, Excel, and HTML reports.

Openbravo takes the Bossie, but also notable is Compiere. A split last year between members led to a forked faction founding the alternative ADempiere project, slowing the company momentum a bit. Nevertheless, Compiere’s point-of-sale and CRM modules make it worth a look.

We’re also a fan of the Apache Open for Business (OFBiz) project, but this formidable solution is not for the technically faint of heart. OFBiz is better suited to VARs than SMEs. Another worthy offering is xTuple’s OpenMFG, a Windows-based manufacturing solution with good reporting. OpenMFG is not technically open source, as is its lighter-weight sibling PostBooks, but xTuple does provide code for in-house customization.

If there’s one IT product category that would seem to be ripest for open source solutions, it is portals, because portals exemplify standards and interoperability. By definition, enterprise portals provide a gateway to content in disparate systems and let users run applications within the portal environment. This is typically done by deploying “JSR-168 compliant” portlets (i.e., portlets compliant with the Java portlet specification) be they custom-written or acquired from a portlet vendor.

Putting aside other standards, which our four portal finalists all follow, the compelling argument for winner Liferay Portal can be summed up by mentioning usability, architecture, security, integration, and portlets. Liferay’s intuitive user experience, featuring drag-and-drop portlet arrangement and management, is tops. The latest version adds PHP and Ruby support. On the security side, enterprises can have single sign-on through Microsoft Active Directory or OpenID in addition to LDAP. There’s integration with Microsoft Exchange, an iCal calendar portlet, and full WebDAV support. Moreover, Liferay offers more than 60 portlets.

Not far behind is the widely deployed JBoss Portal, which runs on the solid and scalable JBoss Application Server. JBoss Portal supports any JDBC-compliant database and has much the same security options as Liferay. However, JBoss’ user interface still needs refinement and there are fewer downloads in JBoss’ PortletSwap catalog compared to Liferay.

Also noteworthy, uPortal is designed primarily for institutions of higher education needing a personalized view of their campus Web. Using a set of Java classes and XML/XSL documents that are tuned for schools (rather than large corporations), this solution can be viable as long as you have staff with Java expertise.

Lastly, GridSphere provides a portal framework and a core set of portlets for creating user profiles and customizing the portal’s appearance. GridSphere is maintained by a small development team and boasts strong administration features that ease deploying portlets. Plus, you can build complex portlets using visual beans and the decent GridSphere User Interface tag library.

Our champion in content management systems is Alfresco, which leads an impressive field including DotNetNuke, Drupal, Joomla, and Plone. If the open source community expects their CMSes to be taken seriously, then these applications need to stand up to the same rigorous testing as their commercial counterparts — and they do. (Look here for the detailed results of our comparative review on Oct. 1.)

Considering ease, features, security, scalability, and management, as well as other factors such as community strength and the backing organization’s support, Alfresco emerges the clear winner. In particular, Alfresco’s depth in multilingual content management, scalable deployment options, breadth of built-in applications, enterprise-grade security, and superior document management put it on top.

That’s not to say the others are not extensible, lack support, or can’t be localized. Runner-up Plone has all these traits, though you might need to search for an add-in. As we go down the list to DotNetNuke, Joomla, and Drupal, they also have many enterprise-class characteristics. But there are clear weaknesses as well. For example, Drupal and Joomla have fewer authentication options. DotNetNuke, while a .Net application, isn’t so well integrated with Microsoft Office.

Still, the open source model is clearly thriving in the content management space, with these five solutions the standard-bearers out of a list numbering well over 100. Even considering the expected support and customization costs, constructing your CMS on an open source base will give you many benefits of commercial systems – and still leave you with enough funds to add features that you couldn’t normally afford.

Several open source projects attempt to implement Exchange-compatible collaboration servers, but three really stand out: Open-Xchange, Scalix, and Zimbra, each available in commercial and community editions. All three are one-stop Exchange replacements for Linux. Our winner, Scalix, isn’t the most feature-rich or innovative of the three (Zimbra is), but it has what most businesses expect from a mail and collaboration platform, along with a solid enterprise pedigree. Originally based on HP OpenMail and recently acquired by Xandros (formerly Corel Linux), Scalix sports a Web-based administration interface, strong Outlook and Novell Evolution integration, POP and IMAP standard servers, and a rich, Ajax mail and calendar client.

As is the case with Open-Xchange and Zimbra, Xandros open sources Scalix’s foundation while setting aside the most lucrative bits as closed source. The open source Scalix does not implement the full Outlook client feature set. However, the downloadable binary Community Edition includes licenses for 25 “premium” users, and those users can effectively use Scalix with Outlook as though they’re talking to Exchange.

Portal Rujukan Utama Kewirausahaan Indonesia

Ini dia, portal yang bakal jadi rujukan utama kewirausahaan di Indonesia. Ya, dengan berani dan yakin saya menyatakan portal TDA yang reborn tadi malam (15/8/2008) sebagai rujukan utama kewirausahaan di Indonesia.

Saya membayangkan portal ini menjadi wikipedianya kewirausahaan Indonesia. Apa pun yang dicari mengenai kewirausahaan, mulai dari start up sampai pengembangan usaha, bakal ditemukan di sini. Sampai sedetil-detilnya.

Portal TDA bakal menjadi one stop knowledge dan know how resources bagi siapa pun yang ingin menjadi wirausahawan.

Kelak, 5 sampai 10 tahun mendatang, hampir setiap usahawan sukses di Indonesia pasti pernah atau telah bersentuhan dengan TDA atau portal ini. Itu impian kita semua.

Hal tersebut bukanlah muluk untuk dicapai. Saat ini, TDA sudah mewarnai ranah kewiurausahaan di dunia maya. Saya sering menemukan blog atau pun situs dengan logo TDA di dalamnya. Logo TDA sudah menyebar bak virus di dunia maya.

Kemarin salah seorang keluarga saya berkata bahwa ia ingin membeli sebuah produk secara online. Ia yakin dengan toko online itu karena ada logo TDA-nya. Rasa senang dan syukur tak terhingga saya rasakan mendengar pernyataan ini. Brand image TDA sudah cukup tinggi.

TDA pun telah mewarnai berbagai media seperti majalah, koran, televisi. Brand TDA telah mendapat perhatian dan respek dari berbagai pihak di usianya yang baru menginjak tahun ketiga ini. Sekali lagi, alhamdulillah. Ini pun masih beyond my wildest dream.

Maka tepatlah jika momen kelahiran kembali Portal TDA yang dibantu sepenuhnya oleh Virtual Consulting itu menjadi tonggak sejarah tersendiri bagi perjalanan TDA ke depan. Dengan kehadiran portal ini, langkah TDA menjadi semakin yakin dan penuh percaya diri. Bahwa, impian itu bisa dicapai.

Dengan tag line “bersama menebar rahmat”, mulai hari ini portal TDA akan bisa dinikmati dan dimanfaatkan oleh khalayak seluas mungkin.

Ini masih versi 1.0, kata Nukman Luthfie (NL), CEO Virtual Consulting yang juga sebagai penasehat TDA. Nanti versi duanya akan lebih dahsyat lagi. Insya Allah.

Tadi malam NL juga berbagi ilmu yang dahsyat sekali. Hadirin dibuat terpukau dengan ilmu dan insight-nya yang luas dan dalam di bidang internet marketing. Bicara soal internet marketing di Indonesia, tak pelak NL merupakan rujukan utamanya saat ini.

Presentasi dan sesi tanya jawab semalam merupakan pencerahan yang luar biasa bagi kami semua. Ada member yang baru menyadari kesalahannya selama ini setelah websitenya “dibedah” oleh NL. Alhamdulillah, di TDA kita semua bisa menikmati priviledge seperti ini.

Acara tadi malam dihadiri banyak pihak seperti BNI yang diwakili Corporate Secretary Manager Dadang Purwaganda. BNI adalah sponsor utama Portal TDA.

Datang pula tetamu lain. detikcom diwakili oleh Sapto Anggoro (Chief Operational Officer) dan Andrias Ekoyuwono (Promotion Manager). Ada juga Riyeke Ustadiyanto, pakar SEO Indonesia yang sengaja datang dari Bali serta Catur PW, pakar personal branding dari MarkPlus. Tidak ketinggalan tim manajemen dari Zahir Accounting.

Mobile push email goes open source

Following in the footsteps of the likes of Nokia and Vodafone, a US company is breaking new ground with push email, claiming the first open source offering of its kind.

Funambol, the company behind the open source client and server product, has already seen 250,000 downloads of the enterprise software, which can support any WAP device, as well as BlackBerrys and handsets based on the Windows Mobile operating system.

The Funambol service is distributed free under the open source GPL (General Public Licence) although users can also buy support and a more feature-rich offering from the company.

According to analysts, mobile email usage is well and truly entrenched in the upper echelons of management. According to a recent report from Datamonitor, revenues from mobile email will triple to $600m by 2009.


eBay feeder business for ‘pickup only’ items

We’ve written about eBay feeder businesses before, such as Zippi, which we featured last year. Now, another example has popped up in the UK focusing on the collection and delivery of ‘pickup only’ furniture and antique items.

For prices beginning at GBP 40, Lots2 will collect and deliver items bought on eBay or other auction platforms from or to anywhere in London, the South East and East Anglia. Large and awkward items that cannot be posted via a conventional courier are the company’s specialty, such as sofas, antiques and furniture. Lots2 offers both economy and express delivery, depending on the flexibility of the customer’s timeframe. Express service is typically for delivery on a particular day with a short lead time, whereas with economy service, Lots2 will collect the item within a week of receiving the order and deliver it within 10 days after that. Lots2 offers pack and protect service to keep items safe during delivery as well. Launched in February 2007, the company has since maintained an on-time delivery record of 99.6 percent.

Lots2 operates just within a portion of the UK, so the opportunities are plentiful around the globe to offer like services. Finding sellers to work with is relatively easy—just use eBay’s search engine to find sellers within a set distance from your zipcode or postal code that sell large items. Movers, delivery companies or minipreneurs with a van—this one’s for you!

IKEA Niche delivery biz

We’ve featured ‘feeder businesses’ for IKEA before—companies that feed off the behemoth’s business by offering its customers add-on products or services. While Bemz and Parts of Sweden let customers add options to products they’ve already bought from IKEA, ModerNash found a different customer need to fulfil.

Nashville residents looking for Swedish design at low prices don’t have access to a local IKEA; the nearest blue-and-green big box is in Atlanta. So two friends decided to bring IKEA to Tennessee by taking orders from customers and driving down to Atlanta to pick up the goods. Customers submit their orders on, listing item numbers, colours, etc. Modernash brings the goods to its Nashville storage facility, where customers can pick up their orders (the company also offers home delivery for an additional USD 50). ModerNash’s shipping rates are significantly lower than those charged by IKEA, ranging from 20–29% of a customer’s total purchase amount.

The company also assembles furniture for USD 25/hour, handles returns (even for customers who didn’t order through ModerNash), and partners with other local companies that design and install IKEA kitchens. Last but not least, it keeps a small number of popular items in stock for immediate pick-up or delivery.

IKEA’s shipping fees in the US tend to be very high—its business model just isn’t geared to catalogue and delivery sales. In many countries, customers can’t order online from IKEA at all. Which opens up opportunities for local delivery companies who’d like to target a niche audience and are willing to offer the extra service, expertise (and patience) required for shopping at IKEA.
