ERP and CRM application OpenTaps 1.4 previewed
The OpenTaps development team has announced the availability of the first preview of version 1.4 of OpenTaps, an open source ERP and CRM suite (Enterprise Resource Planning and Customer Relationship Management). OpenTaps is intended as a complete open source platform covering the areas of ERP, CRM and business intelligence. The software package utilises Apache OFBiz, BI tools Pentaho and JasperReports and Funambol Data Synchronisation Server. Funambol facilitates data synchronisation between mobile devices and for example the Outlook email client.
These components have been updated in version 1.4. The changes include incorporating LDAP, support for GlassFish, JBoss and the IBM Websphere Community Edition, the Apache Geronimo and Tomcat standard application servers and project management and human resources applications. The license has also been changed to version 3 of the GNU Affero Public License (AGPLv3).
The company behind OpenTaps is Open Source Strategies, which has several developers on its payroll. OpenTaps was originally released as Sequoia ERP in 2005.
