1. Open-Xchange CEO on Open Data

Rafael Laguna, CEO of Open-Xchange, shares his thoughts about what
would take to make cloud services more reliable and trustworthy.

2. Open-Xchange and SugarCRM Partner to Combine Open Source Collaboration/CRM Efforts

Open-Xchange and SugarCRM announced a cooperation to
integrate data from SugarCRM and Open-Xchange collaboration
software. The integration enables users to gather and
aggregate data from their social network profiles such
as Facebook, LinkedIn and Xing, as well as their SugarCRM
application, to store it in an Open-Xchange address book
as well as share it with others. This information can then
be moved to the SugarCRM application. In addition, the
SugarCRM data imported into Open-Xchange can be accessed
from smartphones, or published to the Internet.

3. Screencast product review of Open-Xchange

Another great review of Open-Xchange. David Strom did
an informative screencast on Open-Xchange's features,
explaining also the benefits of using data sources
and Web services, including Facebook, LinkedIn, and
Google Mail with Open-Xchange.

4. The 451 Group asks for your experience in open source adoption

Given current economic conditions there is considerable
interest in open source software and whether open source
licensing can help users lower the cost of enterprise computing
compared to traditional proprietary licensing. The 451 Group
would like you to contribute to its survey covering end user
attitudes to the potential financial benefits of open source.
The survey can be found at:

The survey includes about 20 questions. All responses are of
course confidential. In return for your contribution, you will
receive a copy of the research results. The survey will be
available until the end of this week.
