,----[ Quote ]
| In addition to the well-known Asterisk, 
| there is a vibrant community of open source 
| software PABX systems that can be used for 
| internal and service provider IP telephony.
| By leveraging Session Initiation Protocol 
| (SIP) and other standard protocols, open 
| source IP PABXs have achieved some 
| impressive advancements over the years and 
| the integration options for third party 
| apps, like GoogleTalk and Jabber, promises 
| to make them an attractive alternative for 
| enterprises investigating low-cost unified 
| communications (UC) solutions. 



101 Open Source Apps for Enterprises

,----[ Quote ]
| Until recently, few enterprises were using open source software for back
| office applications, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer
| relationship management (CRM). But last month, an IDC survey of Western
| European companies found that nearly ten percent were using open source
| enterprise software. That's surprisingly high for a market where the industry
| leaders themselves have only a ten percent share. IDC also reported that the
| leading open source enterprise applications are growing â by 20 percent or
| more per year.
