Web application development is a must for Cincinnati and Dayton companies. We at STAR BASE, Inc. have written much lately about open source IT solutions. Since we have been on a roll with that, why stop now?
Another open source IT solution we have worked with is Sugar CRM. Sugar CRM falls in to a relatively new software category that I’m going to call Commercial Open Source or COS for short. (Remember you saw the TLA (three letter acronym) COS here first!) COS applications have a free version that you can download and implement and they also have a commercial version that can be licensed and supported like any other software application.
What we have found to be very effective; is to use the open source version and customize and tailor it to meet specific business needs. No need to re-invent the wheel. Swweeet!
